Lyme’s disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by the bite of infected deer ticks. Although most tick bites cause no harm, there are ticks that are infected with the specific bacteria that cause this disease ( Borrelia mayonii and Borrelia burgdorferi in the US). It should be noted that tick bites can only cause this dreaded disease in people if the tics have already bitten infected animals. The signs and symptoms of Lymes disease typically appear in stages, but these can overlap. A red, circular skin rash that often looks like a bull’s eye on a dart board is an early symptom of Lyme disease.
If you live in LA or surrounding areas and you already have noticeable Lyme disease symptoms, you should see a competent Los Angeles Lymes disease doctor as soon as possible to avoid the aggravation of the disease and potential neurological complications. It’s important to keep in mind that the red circular rash ( medically called erythema migrans) may show up even 3 months after the tick bite, but not all people bitten by infected ticks exhibit this symptom. Some people develop flu like symptoms in the early stage of the disease, such as fever, feeling shivery, joint and muscle pain, fatigue/ low energy levels, neck stiffness, nerve pain, and headaches.
The treatment for Lyme disease follows a specific protocol that includes antimicrobial treatment ( the 3 first-line antibiotics for Lyme disease are doxycycline, cefuroxime, and amoxicillin), customized IV protocol and immune-boosting protocol, as well as stem cell therapy for mitochondrial repair, focused on chronic fatigue symptoms. If Lyme disease is not properly and timely treated, you may develop neurological symptoms months and even years after the bacterial infection. Some of these later signs and symptoms of Lymes disease include Bell’s palsy ( temporary paralysis of one side of the face), meningitis ( inflammation of the membrane surrounding the brain), impaired muscle function, numbness and weakness in your limbs, memory problems, and more. The sooner the root cause of your chronic pain is addressed, the better the chances for complete recovery.
