Do Not Let Your Insurer Threaten You
A tick that is no larger than the head of a thumbtack has the power to permanently change your life. A single bite from a tick is all it takes to contract Lyme disease. If you have experienced this, you might be struggling with this disease while working through your ERISA claim. Because the symptoms of this illness are not always evident to others, it can be particularly frustrating for those affected by it.

What Are The Symptoms Of Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is a tick-borne illness that is common throughout North America and Europe. Many individuals contract Lyme disease while spending time in heavily wooded or grassy areas. Those treated with antibiotics early have a good chance of recovery; however, those who are not treated promptly may develop symptoms that last for a long time. These symptoms may inhibit an employee’s ability to work.
Lyme disease manifests in a variety of ways. The disease can affect the nervous system, skin and joints. One of the key identifiers of Lyme disease is called erythema migrans. Erythema migrans is the name for a bulls-eye rash that occurs around the site of the initial tick bite. This rash indicates the multiplication of bacteria in the blood.
Other symptoms of Lyme disease include the following:
- Flu-like symptoms
- Migratory joint pain (especially in the knees)
- Neurological problems
- Heart problems
- Eye inflammation
- Severe fatigue
Treatments generally include antibiotics; however, many patients still experience the aches and pains associated with Lyme disease after undergoing antibiotic treatment.
