Side Effects of Lyme Disease

Lyme disease has many symptoms as well as many side effects. Some of these side
effects can be caught and treated early. However, if you do not catch them early they
can cause further issues with your body. You may know the first symptoms and signs,
but if you aren’t sure that some of the things you are going through are side effects of
Lyme disease, then you may need to review the following information.


While you have Lyme disease, and for some time after, you will experience fatigue. This
fatigue is a full body issue and is not simply a feeling of being tired. You will have
fatigue in your arms, your joints, your muscles, and throughout the body. You will feel
emotionally and mentally tired as well. This has been said to be like the fatigue you feel
with a severe flu or other similar illness. This can be treated in several ways. One of the
main ways is to make sure your body is hydrated appropriately. You also need to make
sure that you are eating plenty of superfoods that have energy properties and digestive
assistance. This is because, as your body is fatigued, so is your digestive system. You
will need to stimulate the system as well so the toxins can be removed to help heal your

Cold Like Symptoms

Cold and flu like symptoms are very common with Lyme disease and may continue as a
side effect. This may include congestion, chest aches, nausea, and fevers. Headaches
are also very common with these symptoms. You will need to treat these side effects
like you would a normal cold or flu and let them pass as normal. Once you have taken
antibiotics for your Lyme disease, and the disease has been cured, you will likely have
these symptoms at least once more as your body heals.

Severe Body and Joint Pain

One of the side effects that people have stated lasts longer than other side effects and
symptoms is severe body and joint pain. This is due to not only the cold and flu
symptoms that cause aches and pains, but also due to the fatigue that causes your
muscles and joints to feel weak as well. As your body heals you will still feel the aches
and pain and they may be the last thing that is healed.

These are just a few of the warning signs and side effects of Lyme disease that can
become dangers if they go unnoticed or untreated. If you are experiencing any of these
issues and you have been around ticks, then you may need to see your doctor for a
consultation and testing.
