Side Effects of Lyme

Flulike Symptoms

About 10 days after the tick bite, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and after the rash has begun, flulike symptoms will occur. This includes fever, chills, headache, fatigue and muscle aches.


Lyme disease can trigger inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain, known as the meninges. This is a condition known as meningitis which can cause symptoms such as fever, stiff neck and severe headache. The inflammation around the brain can interfere with the nerves resulting in a variety of conditions. Bell's palsy, temporary paralysis of the facial muscles, is one neurological effect. Other neurological effects include visual disturbances, irritability, decreased concentration, inhibition of memory and sleep disorders. Nerve damage can also occur in the arms or legs resulting in numbness or a tingling sensation in the hands or feet.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians website, some symptoms of the neurological damage done by Lyme disease may include mood swings, difficulty remembering things or concentrating, a loss of memory and muscle weakness. The University of Maryland Medical Center warns that meningitis, poor motor coordination and Bell's palsy, a temporary paralysis of facial muscles, may also occur. Signs that meningitis might have taken hold in the brain include headaches and neck stiffness.

Heart Problems

Fewer than 10 percent of infected people develop heart problems, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Heart problems associated with Lyme disease include irregularities in heart rhythm, including heart palpitations or a slowing of the heart rate. Less obvious symptoms of heart issues caused by Lyme disease include lightheadedness, shortness of breath and fainting. Chest pain may also occur in some individuals.


A specific type of arthritis named Lyme arthritis may develop in some individuals exposed to Lyme disease, explains The arthritis from Lyme disease often strikes the knees and arthritic attacks can last up to a few months at a time. During an attack, joints may feel painful and start to swell. Antibiotics may be used to treat chronic Lyme disease that presents with arthritis symptoms. Pain medication, especially non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and siphoning fluid from swollen joints can help ease sore, arthritic joints. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, approximately 60 percent of untreated people with Lyme disease will go on to develop arthritis and for 10 to 20 percent, the arthritis will be chronic.

What Causes Candida

There are a lot of causes for Candida. Candida actually is perfectly normal and natural thing to have. Candida Albicans is the yeast that occurs naturally in your body. If there is an overgrowth of this yeast that indicates that there is an infection somewhere in your body.
When the large and small intestines are not in balance or the correct Ph level isn’t established, then you will find that good/bad bacteria does not grow correctly, especially the beneficial bacteria that keeps the candida in check.

Quick list that kick starts Candida

Antibiotics and food preservatives: antibiotics and food preservatives suppress growth of not only bad bacteria but also healthy bacteria, which we need to digest food and fight for Candida. Long-term or frequent intake of antibiotics leads to Candida overgrowth. Another concern is that antibiotics that are administered to animals and accumulated in animal tissue eventually end up in our body to promote Candida growth.
Compromised immune system: poor nutrition, lack of sleep, constant stress, allergies, environmental pollution, use of certain drugs and emotional stress all weaken immune system and cause Candida overgrowth.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy and menstruation: Female hormone plays an important role in immune function. Hormone changes during pregnancy and menstruation make women prone to Candida infections.
Faulty nutrition: over consuming refined sugar, carbohydrates, and dairy products have a positive correlation with Candida growth. Nutrition imbalance weakens our immune system and makes Candida condition worse.

Antibiotics and Candida

Antibiotics are designed to eradicate the bad bacteria that cause certain diseases and infections. While antibiotics destroy bad bacteria and stop the spread of infection, they also destroy the good bacteria that help to keep the Candida in the body under control.
Prolonged or strong doses of antibiotics can lead to an imbalance in gut flora, an imbalance that allows bad bacteria, yeasts and parasites to overgrow in the stomach. If not controlled, the affected person can begin to suffer a slew of negative side effects.

Long Term Antibiotic Treatment

We are seeing an enormous upswing in autoimmune diseases, and it seems to coincide with the massive misuse of antibiotics. Antibiotics are known to indiscriminately kill gut bacteria. If gut bacteria is involved with the autoimmune system, is it being wiped out by antibiotics? Then there is nothing to stop an autoimmune response. Therefore, the indiscriminate use of antibiotics should be considered the probable cause of so much chronic disease.

Chronic Disease

  • Diabetes was unknown in children, other than the very rare child born with it. Now it's rampant.
  • Asthma is at epidemic proportions in children; literally, breath is being stolen from our young people.
  • Cancer becomes more and more common every year.
  • Crohn's disease was nearly unknown until a couple of decades ago, and now its commonplace in young adults.
  • Multiple sclerosis is another disease that's grown common, though was once quite rare.
  • Lupus grows more and more commonplace, whereas hardly anyone had even heard of it a few years ago.
  • Psoriasis grows more and more common.
  • Autism is a growing plague, with estimates of one or more of each hundred children's lives circumscribed by gut misery, and mental and emotional challenges.
  • Lyme Disease: has surpassed AIDS as one of the fastest growing infectious epidemics in our nation. It’s very common to see people prescribed antibiotics for multiple years.

Antibiotics are medications that either kill bacteria or prevent them from multiplying. They work only against bacteria, not the viruses that cause the majority of sore throats, colds, sinus infections, and bronchitis. Sometimes doctors can tell that you have a bacterial infection just by examining us, but other times making a diagnosis requires analyzing a culture (grown from a sample taken with a cotton swab). The fact that someone has a fever, has colored mucus, or has been sick for more than a week does not help determine whether he has a bacterial infection or a viral infection. And these symptoms aren't necessarily reason enough to prescribe an antibiotic. For bacterial infections, antibiotics work quickly; symptoms usually improve dramatically within 24 to 48 hours of starting the medicine.
