Signs and Symptoms of Lyme Disease

lyme disease symptoms

Spiders, bees, and cockroaches may be the pests that send most homeowners running. But one of the most common, devastating, and dangerous bugs is just the size of a pencil eraser and rarely comes into your home on its own. The pest we’re referring to is the tick, which is the carrier of Lyme Disease.

How Do You Get Lyme Disease?

Deer Ticks are very small parasites that are loosely related to spiders. After feeding on deer, they latch onto your skin and feed on your blood. These ticks are carriers of the dangerous disease, which they transfer to you as they eat.

Signs and Symptoms

Lyme Disease symptoms show up days after you have been bitten by a tick. They include:

  • A rash that resembles a bulls-eye. It might be itchy or painful.
  • Flu-like symptoms like fever, fatigue, and headache
  • Over time, you might have joint pain.
  • The scariest symptom of all is irreparable brain damage that occurs over time when Lyme Disease is not diagnosed.
