Lyme Disease Treatments FAQ in Hartford, CT

Can u carry Lyme disease for years and not know?

One of the only reliable ways to know whether or not you have Lyme disease is through a lab test. This means that if symptoms go unnoticed, it is possible to live with the disease for weeks, months, or even years and not realize it.

Can Lyme cause early death?

Can Lyme disease be fatal? Yes – though Lyme disease deaths are rare, they are possible.

What happens if you test positive for Lyme disease?

Your provider will prescribe antibiotic medicine if you are likely to have Lyme disease. Most people who are treated with antibiotics in the early stage of disease will recover completely. Learn more about laboratory tests, reference ranges, and understanding results.

What is an interesting fact about Lyme disease?

Lyme disease has been found on every continent but Antarctica. Typically Lyme disease is transmitted through a bite from an infected tick. These ticks, often the size of a poppy seed, can leave an undetectable bite. Fewer than 50% of people infected get the bull’s eye rash.

Can you test for chronic Lyme disease?

Antibody-based tests (ELISA, IFA, Western blot, Immunoblot): These tests detect antibodies against Borrelia burgdorferi in the blood or spinal fluid. This is the most commonly ordered set of tests for Lyme disease.

Can Lyme disease be picked up in a blood test?

Blood tests which look for antibodies to the bacteria that cause Lyme disease are the main test. This is known as serology. If antibodies have not developed sufficiently, it is possible for these tests to be negative despite active infection.

Can you get Lyme disease twice?

Yes, you can get Lyme disease twice – or more. This is different from being newly infected by other tick-borne illnesses, such as Ehrlichia or Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever, which can present with Lyme-like symptoms but are actually caused by different bacteria than the Lyme disease bacteria.

What are the long term effects of Lyme disease?

These longer-lasting symptoms may include: Arthritis that begins with Lyme disease and doesn’t improve. Body aches and pains. Constant or frequent tiredness.

Can you recover from Lyme disease on your own?

It’s certainly possible for people to get Lyme disease and to clear the infection on their own, without treatment, said Dr. Kuritzkes. “But it’s better to be treated because some of the complications—like arthritis and myocarditis and damage to the central nervous system—can be very serious,” Dr. Kuritzkes said.

What are the symptoms of a Lyme disease flare up?

an increase in fatigue. problems with memory and concentration, sometimes referred to as ‘brain fog’ extreme sensitivity to bright lights, heat, cold, and noise. muscle stiffness. mood changes (including irritability) poor quality sleep. dizziness.
