Lyme disease is now estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as around 300,000 new cases per year. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called Erythema- Migrans (EM). If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.
