    “Lyme Disease is About to Spike Hard This Summer,” according to reports. Lyme can hit rheumatic patients very hard, especially if on DMARDs and biologics and may be a trigger for rheumatic diseases, so important to do full body checks whenever you’ve been outdoors or if pets might be bringing them in on their fur as little hitchikers.

    Thanks, Maz. The comments are important to read, too.

    Lyme/RA; AP 4/2008 off and on to 3/2010; past use of quinolones may be the cause of my current problems, (including wheelchair use); all supplements (which can aggravate the condition) were discontinued on 10/14/2012. Am now treating for the homozygous MTHFR 1298 mutation. Off of all pain meds since Spring '14 (was on them for years--doctor is amazed--me too). Back on pain med 1/2017. Reinfected? Frozen shoulder?

    Very true, Trudi. Sometimes the people contributing to the comments section of articles are more at liberty to say what the article author or interviewee doesn’t.

    This article is really informative, depicting the spread of various tickborne diseases across the US. These are just “estimations” based on reported cases. The full extent of these infections may never be known if doctors don’t recognize the signs and symptoms of these infections. Also, many people don’t realize that “Lyme” is often used as a catch-all phrase to describe tickborne illness, but this is actually a misnomer. A negative Lyme test can’t preclude infection with other tickborne diseases and, as the article describes, knowing that ticks may pass other types of infections could be life-saving.
