Diagnosing Lyme disease is a massive clinical challenge for healthcare professionals due to poor education in the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease (Borrelliosis). Notably, tick borne infections are not limited to Lyme disease and may also include other chronic parasitic infections such as Babesia or Bartonella, both of which are also frequently not screened for and poorly understood by healthcare professionals.
At Old Bridge Acupuncture & Wellness, we have seen many cases of Lyme and related infections (Co Infections) and have restored health and balance to these individuals through a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine. When necessary, we recommend combination therapy with antibiotic treatment in conjunction with a knowledgeable physician. Unfortunately, many individuals previously treated with antibiotic therapy continue to suffer, and we greatly help these individuals.
Typical of Lyme disease, there are 4 common groups of symptoms that routinely occur, together or separately. They pertain to the following: Neurological, Joint arthritis, Gastrointestinal, Musculoskeletal.
1. Neurological Symptoms of Lyme Disease. People with a history of exposure to Lyme disease frequently suffer from neurological symptoms including anxiety, dizziness, vertigo, fatigue, frequent headaches, eye problems, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, palsy (Bell's Palsy), and neuropathy.
2. Joint (Lyme) arthritis. People with Lyme disease may have one or more joints in the body that are swollen, inflamed and painful. Symptoms mimic osteoarthritis. In fact, if joint fluid was biopsied from an affected joint, it would be positive for Borrellia bacteria, which has been shown in research studies.
3. Gastrointestinal Symptoms of Lyme Disease. People with Lyme disease have a history of food sensitivies, GERD, Silent Reflux, Irritable bowel and poor digestion.
4. Musculoskeletal Symptoms of Lyme Disease. Typical symptoms of Lyme disease are wandering, travelling pain throughout your arms, legs or torso. These pains come and go without any rhyme or reason.
