What Are Potential Symptoms of Undiagnosed Lyme Disease?

Tick on a leaf

Although diagnostic medicine has come a long way since decades past, there are still several prevalent disorders that are notoriously challenging to identify. For a number of reasons, diagnosing Lyme disease, the most prevalent illness transmitted by ticks, is quite difficult. Many people with Lyme disease may not receive treatment because they are unaware that they have been bitten, which is a very common occurrence. Tick bites are painless and extremely difficult to notice unless you can feel or see the tick on your skin, in contrast to mosquito bites, whose bites are obvious and painful. Ticks are famously covert when it comes to biting; they prefer to locate safe havens on your body where they can stay alive for as long as possible.

Unfortunately, this means that these critters will likely attack our armpits, scalp, and nether regions. The risk here stems from the fact that we don't frequently inspect these regions for intruders. You have between 24 and 48 hours to remove the tick before its bacteria enter your circulation, which is how long it takes for a sickness like Lyme disease to be transmitted. Tick inspections after working outside or even after strolls through parks should be taken extremely seriously. Don't take any chances since all it takes is one accidental tick encounter for your health to face severe damage.

Why CT tick control is essential

The most prevalent tick-borne illness, Lyme disease is also the most challenging to identify. The target-shaped welt or rash where a tick bit you is the most obvious symptom that you have the illness. This is a blatant indication that you have the illness, although not every person with Lyme disease has such a rash. It is possible for some people to have a persistent Lyme disease infection since they do not always have the desired reaction. The most typical symptoms of Lyme disease infection can occasionally be mistaken for those of other illnesses, including COVID. Headaches, fevers, pains, and fatigue are all indications of Lyme disease. With such generic symptoms, it makes sense why undiagnosed Lyme disease is so common.

However, in situations of persistent Lyme disease, symptoms start to vary. Lyme disease may spread to extremely crucial body parts including your joints, heart, and even nervous system if it is left untreated for an extended period. If you see any signs of arthritis, heart palpitations, facial drooping, memory loss, or any of the other symptoms listed above, seek quick medical attention. Lyme disease may be cured, but only after a proper diagnosis. Undetected Lyme is clearly a huge risk, so make sure you stay aware of the signs.
