    About Lyme disease

    Back to the top

    Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi and the less common Borrelia mayonii. It is transmitted to humans by a bite from a black-legged tick, also known as the “deer tick”, which usually lives in long grass or heavily wooded areas. Deer ticks are commonly found in the Northeast and Midwest regions of the US.

    According to the CDC, deer ticks must be attached to a person for 36-48 hours or more before the infecting bacteria can be transmitted. However, most deer tick bites come from immature or “nymph” ticks, which may be as small as a speck of dust. The CDC estimates that there are nearly 300,000 cases of Lyme disease reported every year, however, because many instances of Lyme disease go unreported, the CDC estimates that closer to 476,000 people contract Lyme disease every year.

    The symptoms of Lyme disease develop in stages. One of the first signs of Lyme disease is a red, expanding bulls-eye-shaped rash known as erythema migrans. This rash rarely itches or hurts, but it will grow over the course of several weeks. In some cases, the rash may expand to nearly 12 inches in diameter.

    Symptoms that begin to develop with the onset of Lyme disease include:

    • Fever
    • Headaches
    • Neck stiffness
    • Body aches
    • Fatigue
    • Swollen lymph glands

    As the disease progresses, or if the infection goes untreated, more serious symptoms may develop. These symptoms include:

    • Joint pain
    • A recurring rash
    • Inflammation of membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis)
    • Facial paralysis (Bell’s palsy)
    • Numbness (neuropathy)
    • Irregular heart rhythms

    If you have been bitten by a tick and are beginning to notice symptoms of Lyme disease, talk to your doctor right away. Most cases of Lyme disease can be effectively treated with medication. The earlier the treatment starts, the more effective it is.
