wildwood, Google "Prevention of Lyme Disease" It well give you a choice of things to look like prevention, treatment and symptoms. Everyone has different symptoms. My son had server head aches then it developed into spinal meningitis then bells palsy to the left side of his face. He was 10 at the time, now that he is 18 his immune system has been weaken from the disease and he gets sick real easy. The doctors said that he was in stage 3 at the time.
My wife developed a rash on her skin and began to itch all the time her joints were hurting and then developed a fear of the dark. the doctor did a byopsis of her skin and could not find anything wrong. Our family doctor called her and wanted to do one more blood test for Lyme disease and sure enough it came back positive. With 3 months of different medications for allergies they found that she was in stage 2 of the disease. She still suffers from joint pain. I hope this will answer your questions. This is important for everyone to know and watch out for your pet that may sleep in bed with you. Your pets can get a Lyme Disease shot from the Vet's.
