What are some common names for lyme disease?
I haven't heard of Lyme disease being called by any other name. There are co-infections of Lyme disease that are named but they are different from Lyme disease.
The symptoms of Lyme Disease that are commonly mistaken for something else, headache, fever, nausea, tiredness and a loss of appetite, have similarities to many other common disease. Some of which include the common cold or the flu.
In most cases, yes. Lyme Disease is treated with anti-biotics. It is only in cases where the disease is left untreated for some time that is becomes more difficult to cure. There are also co-infections associated with Lyme disease. There can also be permanent nerve damage, arthritis from Lyme disease and other complications that require treatment even after the Lyme disease is in remission.
No, it is a spirochetal disease first recognized in Lyme, Conn. in 1975. It is the most common tick-borne illness in the USA. Typhus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Q Fever,and Trench Fever are some examples of Rickettsial Diseases. Rickettsial disease can and are transmitted through the bite on an infected insect.
Possibly. Reportedly there is some risk of Lyme disease passing across the placenta from pregnant mother to the unborn child. In men and women who are not pregnant, Lyme disease cannot be passed on. **** Lyme disease CAN be Passed from PERSON to PERSON. My family and I have Lyme disease. That is how we acquired it and unfortunatley passed it through birth to our children.Lyme disease and the co-infections have been found in bodily… Read More
A physician must diagnose Lyme Disease based on the results of lab tests and blood work. A test called a Western Blot is used to diagnose Lyme Disease. However, there are cases where a patient has Lyme and it doesn't show up in some of the tests or when a false positive is given. The physician will make the diagnosis based on a variety of criteria. The bullseye rash isn't always present in patients but… Read More
No. Lyme disease is a tick-borne infectious disease. While it may be possible to get Lyme disease through sexual intercourse with an infected person, there is still research being done to prove or disprove this theory. It is not, however, a sexually transmitted disease. Some say Lyme Disease can not be sexually transmitted and that Lyme Disease is transmitted through a tick that is infected with it. However, research has proven that the lyme bacterium… Read More
Yes. It is only in very extreme cases where Lyme Disease isn't diagnosed and treated for a long period of time that it is fatal. It isn't the Lyme Disease that would be fatal but rather complications and co-infections that could result from the disease going untreated. In some cases, Lyme Disease that isn't treated for an extended time may lead to paralysis. Most often, Lyme Disease is discovered and treated before any permanent damage… Read More
Lyme disease was first recognized in the United States in 1975 by Dr. Allen Steere, following a mysterious outbreak of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis near the community of Lyme, Connecticut. The rural location of the Lyme outbreak and the onset of illness during summer and early fall suggested that the transmission of the disease was by an arthropod vector. In 1982, the etiologic agent of Lyme disease was discovered by Willy Burgdorfer, who isolated spirochetes belonging… Read More
Yes, the active disease process can be stopped by antibiotics. The term chronic lyme disease is often used for patients where the disease is recurring. This is because the disease stays dormant or in remission once it is introduced to the bloodstream. It is still there but can remain inactive or dormant forever in some patients and then many patients have recurring Lyme for years. There are also many co-infections that are associated with Lyme… Read More
Antibiotics are used to treat lyme disease. Even with this course of treatment some people live with this disease for the remainder of their lives. Antibiotics can be very effective if given during early stage of the disease. You can also get surgery/treatment for it.
Leukemia, lymphoma Leprosy, lyme disease, laryngitis
Lyme has been recovered from the semen of infected individuals via PCR (polymerase chain reaction). This raises the question of transmission via sexual contact, and in the view of some Lyme clinicians it is a possibility.
Some symptoms from Lyme disease include a bullseye like rash pattern, which is called an erythema chronicum migrans (or EM). 80% of patients will have this rash. Some people with Lyme disease will also suffer some sort of facial palsy.
Yes. Visit your doctor for an antibiotic. If you do not treat it early it could attack your immune system and muscular system. Second Answer: Lyme disease is treated with antibiotic drugs as determined by the physician. There are several different antibiotics that can be prescribed for Lyme disease, depending on the symptoms present in the patient and how long they have been infected. In some patients who have been untreated for a significant period… Read More
Cases of Lyme are reported by doctors diagnosing Lyme disease to the CDC.. HOWEVER, the testing for Lyme disease can and often give false results, the patient has the disease, but the test is negative and thus no diagnoses of Lyme, so many go undiagnosed. Also, many infected with Lyme are actually diagnosed with different diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS and others, so many will never get a proper diagnosis. And some bitten… Read More
Yes! Many many people. Especially when they have it chronic or longterm. It is a very hard disease to cure... some never fully get cured. If you look up Chronic Lyme Disease Symptoms there are some very serious symptoms... Heart faliure etc.
There are many possible symptoms of Lyme disease because it can affect every system of the human body. It usually starts with a bulls eye rash accompanied by fever and flu-like symptoms.

Lyme disease can cause problems with vision, including floaters. It can cause every type of muscle pain, inflammation of joints… Read More
Patients who have developed heart block as a complication of disseminated Lyme disease may require a temporary pacemaker. Those with swollen knee joints may need to have excess fluid removed by aspiration
No. Some brown deer ticks do carry the spirochete that causes Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a multi-system bacterial infection caused by the spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi. The spirochete is transmitted from one animal to another through the bite of the infective tick.
Yes. Talk to a Veterinarian about giving the Lyme disease vaccine to your dog as a preventive measure, there are some who believe it may be effective and others who do not. It is not necessary except in certain areas of the US, so speak to a Vet about its use. Symptoms of Lyme disease in dogs include: # High fever # Swollen lymph nodes # Lameness # Loss of appetite # Inflamed joints #… Read More
Generally, prompt treatment is curative for Lyme disease. Some patients are reported to experience fatigue, joint or muscle pain, and neurocognitive symptoms persisting for years despite antibiotic treatment. Those afflicted in the late stage of the disease report a level of physical disability comparable to that seen in congestive heart failure. In some rare cases, Lyme disease can be fatal.
Lyme disease is caused by a group of bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. These bacteria (at least some of them) can infect deers and can also cause a persistent infection in them. But these infections are 'subclinical' so usually there aren't any symptoms in deers.
There are many many diseases that result from bacteria. Tetanus, Diptheria, STDs, Lyme disease are some.
Leukemia, landslides, Lyme disease, lions, legionnaire's disease, lightning and leprosy are scary things that begin with the letter L.
There are always some people who are (or seem to be) immune to diseases. Sometimes people are exposed to HIV and don't get AIDS. They are natually immune to that particular disease.
Yes, dogs can get Lyme disease. Alternatively, it may be because they are cold, in fear, in need some more care and reassurance, or sick with some other illness. Please get medical attention for your dog. Lyme disease in dogs is very serious and a dog may or may not be able to recover without professional medical help. (If left untreated and your dog recovers, serious complications may develop that will cause your dog to… Read More

After you get the tick out, clean the bite thoroughly. You can do this with whatever you use to clean cuts. It might be a good idea to put some antibiotic ointment and a bandage on it. Look for a "bulls eye rash" the sign of Lyme disease or a flu-like illness that occurs soon after the bite, a sign of Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is an infection that is spread by the bite of ticks infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Symptoms include fatigue, headache, stiff neck, fever, muscle or joint pain and swelling, and sometimes an expanding red rash. If a rash does develop, it may look like a target or "bull's-eye" in some people. Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are similar to many other conditions, and tests do not always… Read More

If your dog shows any of the following symptoms, they may be been bitten by a tick infected with Lyme disease: Fever (some dogs do not develop a fever) Loss of Appetite Pain in the legs or body Arthritis or joint swelling Lethargic behavior Depression Cough Enlargement of the lymph nodes (deer ticks) If you think your dog has lime disease, you should take him/her to the vet for evaluation.
Yes, Lyme carditis occurs when Lyme disease bacteria enter the tissues of the heart and interferes with the normal movement of electrical signals from the heart's upper to lower chambers, a process that coordinates the beating of the heart this can be mild, moderate, or severe. Heart block from Lyme carditis can progress rapidly. Those with Lyme carditis usually have other symptoms such as fever and body aches. Lyme carditis occurs in1% of cases Lyme… Read More
Your niece was bitten by a tick three days ago and today had a sudden onset fever of 103 degrees could it be related?
Yes, itj's possible. Some ticks carry disease, such as Lyme disease. It takes a blood test to determine the disease.
Lyme disease can cause acne by several different methods. Late stage Lyme can affect the adrenal glands causing too much or too little cortisol in your system and seems to localize around the facial area and upper back. Also, during treatment while taking antibiotics or anything that kill the bacteria your body can detox through the skin creating pimples mostly on the upper body as well as some on the lower body.
Sure! if one does not properly chew the water, the tick can make it to the esophagus alive and bite.
One sign of Lyme disease is a round, red rash that spreads at the site of a tick bite. This rash can get very large. Flu-like symptoms are also very common. People in the early stages of Lyme disease may feel very tired and have headaches, sore muscles and joints, and a fever. These symptoms can start at any time, from 3 days up to a month after you have been bitten. Some people don't… Read More
Harmful microorganisms cause disease and illness to animals and plants. Some of these include E. coli, the cholera virus, anthrax and Lyme.
Salmonella enteritidis - Salmonellosis (food poisoning) Vibrio cholera - Cholera Yersinia pestis-Plague Clostridium tetani- Tetanus/Lockjaw Clostridium perfringens- Gangrene Pseudomonas aeruginosa -(some forms of ) conjuctivitis Mycobacterium tuberculosis-Tuberculosis Borrelia burgdorferi -Lyme Disease Treponema pallidum- Syphilis
Close to 30,000 according to the CDC. Since Lyme is always underreported, the CDC currently believes the probable cases are 20% higher yearly. They used to say the underreporting could be as high as 10 fold the yearly figure. Some in the Lyme community believe the true figure is underreported cases could be as high as 100 fold.
In some cases, yes. I advise Googling the topic, but if you are considering it for yourself or someone close to you, then you may want to talk to a physician about it.
Cefuroxime is a second-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. GlaxoSmithKline sells it under the name Zinnat. It is sold throughout the world under a couple of dozen other names. Cefuroxime is normally used for difficult infections such as Lyme Disease and some kinds of gonorrhea. Its most common side effects are diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headaches/migraines, dizziness and abdominal pain. Taking it with food helps to reduce these effects which are, in any case, usually of short duration.
Lyme disease is caused by a group of spirochete bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. Ticks can get infected by these pathogens while sucking blood on an infected vertebrate. As ticks (well, not all ticks, but the ones that carry Lyme disease) feed at every stage of their lives on a different host, they can get infected at every stage. Some pathogens can circulate transovarially (i.e. an infected female tick's eggs are already infected), but… Read More
