What are the symptoms of Lyme disease?
Most early symptoms of Lyme disease include fatigue, fever, chills, headaches, and joint and muscle aches similar to numerous other conditions.
Perhaps the most distinguishing early sign of Lyme disease is the big red rash which is about two inches or more in diameter.
This might develop at the tick bite site three to 30 days after the occurrence.
Normally the rash is visible within seven days and may look like a target or bullseye.
However, not everyone with Lyme disease gets a rash, and some people who get the rash might not notice if it is located out of sight, such as on the back.
