Yes, it is amazing how many problems Lyme disease can cause (e.g., heart, respiratory, memory, neurological, skin, joint, eye, spine, and the list goes on). Sadly, I know multiple people with Lyme disease. Fortunately, a couple of them are no longer experiencing symptoms, but a few are still trying to get well, even after an extended period on antibiotics. In fact, one person had terrible skin lesions that caused minor scarring. They were itchy and bothersome to the point he had trouble sleeping at night, Gosh, I felt so bad; he could barely get relief.

Lyme disease is a very serious condition. And, unfortunately, it is spreading rapidly in some areas (particularly the Northeast). The original bite may or may not cause a rash. If a rash does occur, it is important to get immediate medical attention and treat the bite area so a scar does not appear. [br] [br]Lyme disease can still happen without a rash at the bite site, so always seek help if you are bitten by a tick. This disease often mimics other types of illnesses. Sadly, if an accurate diagnosis is not immediately made, it can go in to a chronic form of the illness. Some people who were diagnosed with arthritis, mental illness, dementia, MS, ALS, and a medley of other conditions really have underlying Lyme. I guess that is why some people call it The Great Imitator.

It is important to know that bug bites can not only wreak havoc with the skin but with health, as well. This is a main reason why it is crucial to have a bite mark checked out by a doctor. [br][br]Ticks, in particular, were once thought of as relatively benign pests that sucked people's blood and then went on their merry way. Nonetheless, it is now known that the odds of getting a disease from the bite is not as rare as formerly believed. In fact, Lyme disease is a fast-growing illness in many parts of the United States. Therefore, if you see a rash or odd marks on your skin, see a physician. [br] [br]Has anyone ever suffered with Lyme disease? If so, do it go away, or do you now have the chronic form? [br][br]
