Lyme Disease is a tricky one to diagnose. It is incredibly easy to contract due to the size of the ticks that spread the disease (some are the size of a period that gets placed at the end of a sentence). The symptoms of lyme disease are usually misdiagnosed as something else. Other diseases are sometimes diagnosed when Lyme Disease was apparent. You will read in this article some of the symptoms of Lyme Disease. Look further into this article if you are worried that you have contracted this disease.
Having an inflamed heart is not something that presents itself right away. In fact, this is one of the harder Lyme disease symptoms to figure out. Inflammation of the muscles around the heart is not easy for most to discern. If you have pain in your chest primarily around the heart, that is one indication of this condition. A second indication would be a hard time when breathing. In addition if you have swelling. If you notice these things you should see your doctor and ask to have your heart checked out. Even if you don't suspect Lyme disease, any of these things should lead you to contact your doctor.
The stage of the disease is the most important information you will need because the symptoms weigh heavily on what stage you are dealing with. The fact is all of the stages manifest themselves in different ways. In stage two the heart and nervous systems become involves, this stage is referred to as "early disseminated disease" stage. The name of this stage describes the symptoms perfectly. This is the stage when various Palsies begin to present. From time to time the heart will become inflamed and some of the other internal organs begin to have complications.
One of the primary characteristics of Lyme disease isn't necessarily a headache.
Headaches are prevalent for many people and usually don't mean much more than a person being a little dehydrated or stressed. If the headaches are especially intense or are occurring with increasing frequency, however, it is a good idea to get a checkup from your doctor. There could be something else that is causing your headaches, even if Lyme disease is not the inflamer. The faster you have them checked out the more likely it'll be that you can have them healed appropriately and not have to stress about contending with them any longer. Diagnosing Lyme disease can be tricky. Many of the symptoms are the same as other disease and are therefore misdiagnosed. Even more so for those who don't show any symptoms until the later stages of the disease. In the end, you know your body best, so if you feel a little off, it is better to talk to your doctor. You never know, they may find that tick bite and get you the needed treatment.
