Lyme Disease

July 31, 2007

Five weeks ago I started flu-like symptoms that progressed into throbbing joint pain, chest pain and shooting pains through my muscles. My limbs felt like they carried weights and my memory was fuzzy. When the flu-like symptoms subsided and I was still exhausted after a week, I went to the doctor and asked about Lyme Disease. Delaware has an epidemic of it this year. We’ve had at least 6 cases in our little church of 25. Now, after 15 days on a strong antibiotic, I’m finally feeling better. Another week on the medicine and I should be good to go. If you’ve been exhausted for no apparent reason with similar symptoms, get medical attention. Lime can turn into fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other chronic conditions if left untreated. Check out this site
