Lyme Disease Testing in Orland Park
Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose without proper testing as it shares symptoms with many other diseases. Early stage Lyme disease has many flu-like symptoms including headache, fever, fatigue (malaise) and muscle soreness. The majority of people with Lyme disease do have the visible sign of Erythema Migrans (a bull’s-eye like rash) as the disease is transferred by a tick bite. However, the lack of the rash has led to many misdiagnosed cases.
