Lyme disease is transferred through tick bites via a bacterial infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. The difficulty of Lyme disease diagnosis comes from the wide range of symptoms those who have been affected experience. Many symptoms include physical ailments such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, and a rash around the site of the bite.
However, some symptoms are less physical and more mental. Many of those who have been affected by Lyme disease experience depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and irritability. What’s worse is these symptoms can remain dormant for years at a time, only to resurface unexpectedly and seemingly without reason.
Since these symptoms are so widely varied, most doctors don’t test for Lyme disease and are unable to deliver treatment. Even when the standard tests are done, most of them miss the signs of chronic Lyme disease.
