Treatment and Symptoms
Almost everyone has heard of Lyme disease, an illness caused by being bitten by an infected tick. Lyme disease treatments exist if the disease is caught in time. But, many people aren’t aware that symptoms often mimic other illnesses and don’t appear at the same time. To complicate symptom recognition further, many people don’t even know a tick has bitten them.
At Serenity Health Care, we can diagnose Lyme disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the upper Midwest region is a prime location for Lyme disease. Lyme disease treatment is possible, but early diagnosis is vital to helping prevent serious health problems.
Take precautions in wooded areas where ticks are common. Light colored clothing can help you spot ticks. Inspect your skin when you come indoors. If you develop a rash or flu-like symptoms after being in a suspect area, schedule an appointment for a diagnosis. Keep a watch for these symptoms, so you’ll know when to ask about Lyme disease treatment:
- A skin rash that looks like a bull’s eye is one of the most common symptoms, but this rash is not present on everyone.
- Muscle aches, fever and headaches (flu-like symptoms) can appear in the first 30 days after being bitten by a tick.
- Some people develop more advanced symptoms such as joint pain, dizziness and heart rate changes.
Although advanced Lyme disease can take longer to treat, most people recover. Research has shown ONDAMED and thermohraphy to be effective in improving the rate of recovery from Lyme disease.
Diagnosis of Lyme disease isn’t something you want to postpone. It’s important to act now for Lyme disease treatment. When something does feel right about your health, schedule an appointment with Serenity Health Care. We’ll find the right path of healing, so you can get back to enjoying your life.
