Lyme Disease, Are You At Risk?
December 8, 2016 Amy Baxendale

Diagnoses of Lyme disease have been on the rise around the world.

According to the World Health Organization, 35,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease in Europe, and another 3,500 in Asia every year but considering how difficult Lyme is to diagnose, the number may be as high as ten times that number. Early symptoms are often a rash and flu-like symptoms, but can also include gastrointestinal and neurological symptoms but especially tiredness similar to post-infectious or post viral fatigue. Later symptoms may include joint pain and neurological symptoms such as numbness, Bell’s palsy and others. Symptoms may come and go or be very mild. Chronic Lyme Disease can also trigger Adrenal Fatigue. If you have Lyme Disease, a comprehensive long- term recovery plan is critical to prevent the problem becoming chronic.
