Symptoms Of Lyme Disease

The earliest symptom of lyme disease is a red circular patch that resembles bulls eye. This raised ring appears after some days on the site of the bite. It begins enlarging itself and if left uncontrolled, it can grow quite big. This red rash can also arise in areas not bitten by the tick. If left untreated, the patient may develop fever with flu type symptoms, joint pains that shift from one joint to another, and at later stages neurological problems such as paralysis, numbness, mood changes, etc. You should consult your doctor about more details on these late complications. Better to get yourself diagnosed for lyme disease and get treated as soon as you get either a rash or fever after some days of traveling through areas known for deer ticks. Prevention is better in this case.
