Signs and Symptoms of Lyme Disease
Usually a tick must be attached to the skin for at least 36 to 48 hours in order for the bacteria to cause infection. Nearly anyone can get Lyme disease but risks are greater for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in wooded or grassy areas. Children can be at risk during outdoor play.
Early symptoms of Lyme disease usually show up 3 to 30 days after a 36+ hour attachment of an infected tick. These symptoms commonly include: a red rash at the site of the tick bite that sometimes looks like a “bull’s-eye;” headache; tiredness; muscle and joint pain; swollen lymph nodes, fever and/or chills.
If Lyme disease is not treated, it can affect joints, the heart, or the nervous system. Symptoms can include; severe headaches; neck stiffness; rashes; weakness of face muscles; pain in joints, tendons, muscles, bones, or nerves; irregular or pounding heartbeat; dizziness or shortness of breath; numbness or tingling in hands or feet.
Common Lyme Disease Symptoms Checklist:
- Lasting pain

Why It Works
We understand that autoimmunity is personal; no two people have the same environment, diet, nutrition and symptoms. By making small changes in your daily choices, you can eliminate or minimize their impact on your life and how you feel.
