Lyme disease is a dangerous condition. The tick-borne illness can affect the entire body, including its most vital organs, such as the heart and brain. When a person first contracts the bacteria after being fed on by an infected tick, they will cycle through some flu-like symptoms. If they receive prompt treatment, that may be the end of it. However, post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome can develop in anyone who has had the infection, and when that happens, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease can cause even more damage. Brain fog is one symptom that can develop in people with Lyme disease. But what is brain fog, exactly?

But what is the connection between Lyme disease and brain fog, and can it be treated?Continue reading “Can Lyme Disease Give You Brain Fog?”
