Many people have health issues because of having Lyme disease. It is not an easy disease to have. Lyme disease can make you experience many health complications. Here are tips on dealing with Lyme disease:
You can have many different symptoms of Lyme disease. Many people can get an obvious sign by getting a huge rash that looks like a big red circle with a dot in it. The rash will kind of look like a bull’s eye. The dot is where you have been bitten by a tick. Ticks are what give you Lyme disease. Ticks carry the disease so when you are bitten by a tick you may get Lyme disease. So be careful of grassy and wooden areas since that is where you can pick up ticks the most.
Besides the rash being a sign and symptom of Lyme disease there are other symptoms to be on the watch for. If you feel like you have the flu, you may have Lyme disease. Having Lyme disease just makes your whole body feel really off. You may find that you have neurological issues. Your joints may feel painful. You may have an irregular heartbeat. You may also experience inflammation of your eyes or liver too.
You can get diagnosed by taking a very simple blood test. That is what my doctor had me do. I had many of the Lyme disease symptoms. I was fatigued all the time, and everything felt like it took a huge effort to do. My joints were in constant pain, and my nervous system was way off. So, if you feel like you have many of the Lyme disease symptoms just ask your doctor for a blood test to determine if you have it or not.
It is not always easy to have to stop doing your normal routine just because you are not in the best of health. Plus, people do not always understand what Lyme disease is, and how much it can take out of a person. Being tired and in pain all the time is hard. For some people it just sounds like a simple tick bite, but it is so much more than that. It really changes your life for a while. So, be kind to yourself if you have Lyme disease. Take it easy, and do not feel bad if you cannot do things like you used to. These are some tips on dealing with Lyme disease.
