Comments:
Lyme disease/Borreliosis is transmitted by the bite of a tick. Ticks transmit other difficult diseases along with or besides Lyme/borreliosis. Signs and symptoms of Lyme/borreliosis can include fatigue, rash, muscle/joint pain, headache, flu-like and cognitive changes. For some, nervous system problems are the only symptoms. Certain ticks, deer and mice have been identified as important to the maintenance and spread of Lyme disease. Each of these has established populations in MO and KS. Seek medical advice for tick bites and for any suspected tick-borne disease. Different ticks can vector different diseases and one can be infected with more than one tick-borne disease. Email us (Lyme Association/greater KC) at [email protected] or call 913-438-L-Y-M-E for more information. Ask for our free brochure on Lyme disease. Call 1-800-886-L-Y-M-E (the LDF) and ask for their free brochure on tick-borne disease. Write to the LDA (Pat Smith) for more information: P.O. Box 1438, Jackson, New Jersey 08527.
