Lyme Disease Treatments FAQ in Fargo, ND

Can late stage Lyme disease be cured?

Without early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment, Lyme disease can cause many serious long-term health complications. But even people with late-stage Lyme disease can recover fully with the right treatment. It may take longer to get back to normal, and you may need several courses of medication.

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.

What does Lyme disease do to your brain?

Neurological complications most often occur in early disseminated Lyme disease, with numbness, pain, weakness, facial palsy/droop (paralysis of the facial muscles), visual disturbances, and meningitis symptoms such as fever, stiff neck, and severe headache.

Is Lyme disease a lifetime disease?

If treated, Lyme disease does not last for years. However, for some people, the after-effects of the disease can linger for months and sometimes even years.

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.

Is it hard to diagnose Lyme disease?

Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose because early symptoms of fever, severe fatigue, and achiness are also common in many other illnesses. In addition, diagnostic blood tests are not always dependable, particularly in early disease.

Can Lyme cause early death?

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

How do you test for Lyme disease years later?

The diagnosis of late-stage Lyme disease can be very difficult, and is usually made by a specialist in infectious diseases. The diagnosis can be confirmed if the affected person has had the characteristic ‘bull’s eye’ rash and has lived or worked in areas where ticks are present, or with a blood test.

What does the beginning of Lyme disease feel like?

Early Lyme disease may feel like the flu: fever, sore muscles, headache and fatigue. Some people may develop a highly distinctive rash, which may look like a bull’s-eye. However, many people with Lyme never knew they were bitten and never developed a rash. The CDC reports that rashes occur in 60-80% of cases.

Can you see Lyme arthritis in an xray?

Overview. There are no X-ray findings associated with Lyme disease. However, an X-ray may be helpful in the diagnosis of complications of chronic Lyme arthritis.

Does Lyme disease lower life expectancy?

Lyme arthritis is treated with a longer course of oral antibiotics but sometimes requires IV antibiotics. It is extremely unlikely for anyone to die from Lyme disease.

What is the strongest antibiotic for Lyme disease?

Ceftriaxone (Rocephin) Ceftriaxone has excellent penetration of the blood-brain barrier and is one of the most effective drugs for Lyme disease.
