system. Spirochetes can survive for many years in the joints or die
after triggering an inflammatory response.
Lyme disease affects all ages and both sexes with an onset during the summer months. Complications can include myocardiopathy
(inflammation of the heart muscle), pericardiopathy (inflammation of
the sack around the heart), arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), meningitis, encephalitis, cranial and peripheral nerve damage, and arthritis.
Treatment consists of prompt removal of the tick by proper technique,
rest when needed and I.V. or oral antibiotics as close to infection exposure as possible. Diagnosis can include acute pain, fatigue, hyperthermia
or fever, impaired mobility, impaired skin integrity and risk of infection.
Post-infection and treatment consists of monitoring for skin lesions,
appropriate response to treatments, adverse drug reactions and complications. One must be aware of how to avoid Lyme disease, such as
avoiding tick-infested areas, covering the skin with clothing, using
insect repellents, inspecting exposed skin for attached ticks at least
every four hours, and/or removing them.
Lyme disease or chronic neuroborreliosis must be differentiated from
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, which is difficult late in
the disease because of ongoing pain and fatigue. The other diseases
produce more generalized and disabling symptoms. Patients also lack
evidence of joint inflammation, have normal neurological test results,
and have a greater degree of anxiety and depression than patients
with Lyme disease.
So go out and enjoy your summer days along with a cool beverage
with a lime slice for taste. Just avoid Lyme disease-a very unpleasant and potentially lifelong experience that can begin on that same
summer day!  ●
