For the record reports of Lyme disease, also known as Borreliosis have increased some twenty-five fold in the last forty years with no sign of slowing up. Lyme disease can pose dangerous and lingering health risks to those unlucky enough to be infected with the disease.

By the Numbers

EACH YEAR IN THE UNITED STATES some 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) but the actual number is perhaps ten times that or 300,000 infections per year. The disparity in these figures is due in part, according to the CDC, because only around 10% of actual Lyme cases are reported.

Lyme Disease Word Cloud

The vast majority are not reported because people aren’t aware they even have the disease. In addition, it is often misdiagnosed by doctors. In their defense, Lyme disease is difficult to pinpoint for a myriad of clinical reasons. Moreover, symptoms can mimic many common ailments further complicating detection. For that reason Lyme disease is also known as ‘The Great Imitator”.

Lymes disease has ruined my life. I had been tested for antibodies in 1993, didn’t know I was bitten, got diagnosed just before moving from Ct. to Fl. imagine back then few Drs knew what to do in Ct. but Florida… I was sent to Miami specialist, I was in stage 4 but also had Epstein Barr syndrome. Now I have several auto immune problems, one is chronic blood clots, antiphophlipid syn.
I hope this will help someone to be aware and coverup when in fields, hike in woods, ect.
