Lyme Disease

Back


The Lyme Disease Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Global Lyme Alliance. It is intended to provide intended educational information and healthcare savings resources for those living with this diagnosis.

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted through the bite of an infected blacklegged deer tick. It is one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the United States and Western Europe. Some of the first symptoms may include a flu-like condition, with fever, chills, headache, stiff neck, achiness, and fatigue. The hallmark bulls-eye rash, which may appear on any body area, is not present in all cases. Called the "Great Imitator", Lyme disease can mimic hundreds of other conditions since its symptoms mirror many medical problems such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome or lupus. If untreated, it can become a severely debilitating illness affecting multiple organs, including joints, heart, brain and other parts of the central nervous system. Many patients go undiagnosed far too long, causing chronic disabilities.
