We take great pride at Sierra Integrative Medical Center in offering some of the most advanced therapeutic options available for the treatment of Lyme disease as well as other hard to treat infectious diseases.
What causes Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused when an individual is exposed to the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. Many people are aware that Lyme disease is caused by bites from a black-legged tick, but other insects such as mosquitoes can also transmit the disease.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is commonly misdiagnosed due to its nondistinct signs and similar symptoms with other afflictions.
The most common symptom of Lyme disease is a bullseye-shaped skin rash. As Lyme disease progresses, you might also experience:
- Shortness of breath
- Joint swelling
- Extreme fatigue
- Trouble sleeping
- Decline in cognitive abilities
- Sensitivity to light
