Lyme Disease is an
acute inflammatory condition. The name Lyme Disease
comes from the town where it was first identified in
the mid-1970s - Lyme, Connecticut.
Disease is a tick borne illness caused by
bacteria that cause it are transmitted by the
deer-tick (carried by deer and
mice). It can also be carried by
black-legged tick and wood rats. These ticks are
tiny and hard to spot and thus go
undetected. These ticks can fall off
an animal into grasses in marshes or fields or into brush
in wooded areas from which they can be picked up by an
unsuspecting passerby who becomes the next host.
tick will bite, and waits several hours before it
begins to feed on the host's blood. It will then
feed for three or four days. As it feeds, it may
deposit bacteria into the host's bloodstream. The
longer the tick remains attached, the greater the risk
of the disease.
symptoms are variable and will show up two to thirty
two days afterward. The first sign
maybe the appearance of a red, circular lesion or rash
on the skin. The lesion gradually expands
in a circular pattern while the center appears to
clear up. It is for that reason it is
referred to as a bull's eye rash.
addition to the rash, and in some cases, instead of
the rash, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, difficulty
sleeping, muscle weakness, achiness, headache, stiff
neck, backache, and, occasionally, nausea
and vomiting may occur.
disease usually progresses through three stages:
Raised bumps on the skin and/or a rash appear and may
cover the entire torso for a day or two or as much as
several weeks and then fade.
Facial paralysis may occur weeks to months
later. Enlargement of the spleen and lymph
glands, severe headaches, enlargement of the heart
muscle and abnormal heart rhythm may also occur.
Over the long term, persistent headache, stiff neck,
joint pains that attack the knees, swelling and pain
in other joints and even degenerative muscle disease maybe
the tick bite is usually unnoticed and the incubation

chronic fatigue syndrome. Misdiagnosis is not
uncommon. A blood test is usually used to
identify the disease by measuring certain antibodies

to do if you've been bitten
is important that if a person is bitten by a tick, the
longer it remains, the more chance there is of
infection. Most people can reduce the major problems
if the tick is spotted fairly soon and removed.
The way to remove it is tweezers, not
fingers. If you must use fingers, protect
them with a paper towel. Grab the insect close
to its head and pull it straight out. Take it to
a doctor or health department for identification.
Tree oil can be used on a piece of cotton on the
tick's head. It will kill the tick in minutes,
making it easier to yank out minimizing the amount of
harmful bacteria absorbed into the system.
