Recently Justin Beiber has been diagnosed with Lyme disease, this what you should know about Lyme disease,
What is Lyme Disease/What causes Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease. It’s a serious disease that starts with a black-legged tick known as the deer tick, Ixodes scapularis.
Ticks bite and suck, both literally and figuratively. Have to be careful when walking through the woods, the park, or some other area with vegetation.
The problem is not the tick itself but the bacteria it carries known as Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii which lead to Lyme Disease but much more rarely. Ticks can serve as carriers for such bacteria and cause Lyme Diases, while being really sucky, deposit this bacteria right into your body.
Symptoms of Lyme Disease
During the initial three to 30 day period after getting infected with this bacteria, you may notice something amiss or you may not.
Symptoms can range from the more obvious to the more subtle to none at all.
You may develop a fever, headache, chills, and swollen lymph nodes.
You may feel fatigued or have muscle and joint aches. You may develop the characteristic “bull’s eye” rash, which in medical terms is called erythema migrans (EM). Or you may not.
