Later Symptoms of Lyme Disease - Common Signs
What are the later symptoms of Lyme disease?
Once Lyme disease has passed the initial early stages of the condition, it progresses into the second stage, also known as early disseminated Lyme disease. This means that the infection caused by the bacteria has begun to spread and is now probably affecting some bodily functions. This can happen anywhere from weeks to months after receiving a bite from an infected tick.

A note about Later Symptoms of Lyme Disease - Common Signs
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
By the time this happens, the body can be quite heavily affected, so it is important to nip Lyme disease in the bud early before it progresses.
Some of the later symptoms of Lyme disease include an abnormal heart beat, numbness in the arms or legs, pain in the arms or legs, paralysis of facial muscles, and meningitis. Symptoms of meningitis can comprise of a stiff neck, severe headaches, and fever.
If Lyme disease goes undetected, or if treatment is not sought early on, the infection can then spread and affect the joints, nervous system, skin, and heart. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence, since oftentimes there are no early symptoms of the disease, or else the early symptoms are confused for something else. This is especially common when the individual has no recollection of having received a bite from a tick.
If the later symptoms of Lyme disease progress, more serious symptoms can occur. Fatigue is one of the most common signs. Additional skin rashes can also develop over parts of the body as the infection continues to spread. Further, weakness, pain, or numbness in the arms and legs can occur, as can recurring headaches and even fainting.
Facial paralysis generally occurs on one side of the face and should eventually go away on its own, although it can be extremely disconcerting when if it does occur. Poor memory and the inability to concentrate are also later symptoms of Lyme disease, as is conjunctivitis, more commonly referred to as pinkeye.
If the symptoms of Lyme disease continue to go untreated, and the bacterium continues to spread throughout the body, then even more serious symptoms can develop. For that reason, it is vital that any symptoms should be taken seriously, especially if you have recently been bitten by a tick or spent any time in a wooded area or a place where ticks are prevalent.
Taking preventive measures against tick bites is one of the best ways of decreasing your risk of developing Lyme disease. If you have already developed the disease, however, then there are ways of natural treatment, whether treating the early or later symptoms of Lyme disease, although if the symptoms progress, then the treatment will need to become more progressive.
Treatment and Remedies in Brief
A focus is generally put towards building up the immune system and making it stronger so that it is able to fight off the disease more effectively. The symptoms, such as the headaches, muscle and joint pain, and fever, can all be treated with natural methods as well. However, the underlying bacterial infection is the root of the disease and needs to be targeted.
Aloe vera juice is easily purchased at most health food stores and has antiviral and antibacterial properties. In addition, many individuals have had success in using homeopathic remedies, which include the use of such herbs as Ashwangha, Black Cohosh, Wood Betony, and Kava. However, any homeopathic remedies should be overseen by a professional.
As you can see, the later symptoms of Lyme disease can be quite severe. To learn more about this ailment and how to overcome it, read the other related Lyme disease articles and pages.
