"“When a tick bites you, it has an anesthetic in its saliva that actually numbs the surface of your skin so you don’t feel the bite, and that’s why people don’t know that a tick is latched onto them and is biting them,” says Dr. Erica Lehman, a tick-borne disease specialist.

 

"If bitten, early symptoms include headaches, nausea, numbness, muscle aches, extreme

fatigue and Bell’s palsy,” Lehman says of the manifestations on the more minor side of the spectrum. Severe symptoms include dementia and arthritis. It can affect people physically, cognitively and psychologically.”

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 25,000 Americans were diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2013, but Lehman says this number is “significantly underestimated” due to factors such as imperfect testing and symptoms that mimic those of Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and lupus."
