Lyme Disease

What Causes Lyme Disease?

Caused by the bite of an infected tick, Lyme disease, co-infections, and other tick-borne illnesses can often be debilitating for patients. Exposure to an infected tick can cause an acute infection, which is often treated with antibiotics. Sometimes however, the acute infection can become a chronic illness. This typically happens when the original infection was not treated properly, or if the resulting inflammation continues in the body. Common symptoms like fatigue, headache, or joint pain often look the same in both acute and chronic cases. Chronic Lyme disease may require treatment in addition to or in place of an antibiotic regimen. At Remedy Health, Dr. Milani uses state of the art testing to detect whether a Lyme disease case is acute or chronic, and whether the patient is suffering from an inflammation or immune issue.
