Lyme disease affects thousands of Americans. Each year, roughly 20,000 to 30,000 new cases are confirmed nationwide. When a person develops Lyme disease, they may experience mild illness that can be treated effectively using antibiotics. However, that isn’t always the case. Some people who contract the bacteria that causes Lyme disease end up developing long-term complications and issues that impact the health of their entire body.

Because of this, it can hide in plain sight, causing damage to organs, tissues, and healthy cells.
