Can You Distinguish the Chief Symptoms of Lyme Disease

It is not always easy to identify the symptoms of lime disease. Lyme Disease is easy to contract due to the size of the ticks that cause it, most are smaller than the head of a pin. Its symptoms are often mistaken for other kinds of diseases. Other diseases are occassionally diagnosed when Lyme Disease was the primary thought. In this article we will talk about some of the symptoms. If you have some concern that you’ve contracted Lyme Disease keep reading.

The most obvious of all of the Lyme disease symptoms is the bull’s eye shaped rash that starts to develop. The more technical term is a red ring that develops around the bite site. Soon, the rash will then begin to spread across the body. This rash will not look the same as an infected wound looks. The rash moving away from the sore is an indication, since an infected wound won’t radiate out. On the other hand, if the redness circles the bite it is probably Lyme disease. Regardless if your rash looks like a Target logo you should probably call your doctor. Of course you should contact your doctor if you develop any kind of rash. You might be scanning this while right outside paying attention to wind chime and laying back on your hammock.

Swollen lymph nodes (glands) are a common symptom of pretty much any disorder out there. So, when it occurs in your body, how do you know the syndromes indicate Lyme disease? The quickest answer is: you won’t.

You won’t be able to know for certain if your swollen glands are an indicator of Lyme disease until you become tested for the condition. If these swollen glands are associated with some of the other major syndromes (especially a tick bite or a bull’s eye rash), although, taking a look for Lyme disease when you consult with your physician will be an excellent idea.

There are a ton of symptoms to describe the condition of Lyme Disease. These symptoms are typically indepedent of each other. Your symptoms will likely be greatly varied depending on the stage of disease you are experiencing. This disease has three stages. The third stage is called “late disease” and it is usually manifested by nerve damage in the motor and sensory functions of the body. At this point in the disease brain inflammation and arthritis may present. The problem with this stage is that identifying these symptoms as being a part of Lyme disease usually involves going through lots of invasive testing for other disorders. Lyme Disease is usually the last thing that becomes apparent.

It is not uncommon to mistake Lyme disease for a different sickness. This comes into being, for the fact that signs of Lyme disease are often signs of other diseases and illnesses. The simple truth is that the only true way to diagnose Lyme disease is by paying a visit to your medical professional and getting a check up. Sometimes a few other problems may need to be ruled out before the culprit for your problem is found.

Still-seeing your doctor is always a good idea, just in case. After all, it’s better to be safe and get treated than to wait and suffer longer than you have to!

Fit & Well: Core Concepts and Labs in Physical Fitness and Wellness

A holiday to change your life

By Mark Hodson, editor of 101 short breaks

A few years back, I wrote an article for a national newspaper about trips that can change your life. As part of the research I spent a week at a health retreat in Italy. Although I didn’t totally buy into the idea, I was slowly drawn in by the busy schedule of fitness training, walking, healthy eating and yoga – it actually changed my life.

I love going away but I always tend to return to work feeling drained. It may sound corny, but I need another holiday to recuperate from the first one.

This was a new experience. Although the workouts were tough, I returned to my desk feeling full of energy, with friends remarking that I looked healthy and well. After that, I gave up coffee, reduced my alcohol intake and took up yoga classes.

In the intervening years these retreats have become popular with time-poor, cash-rich 30somethings.

Meanwhile, over the intervening years, my grip on the healthy lifestyle had slowly loosened. Althouh my diet is fairly healthy, I drink too much wine and too many cups of tea. And I didn’t stick with the yoga.

I work too hard, always in front of a computer screen and I’d acquired a couple of niggles: a sore hip, a tight shoulder and dry eyes.

I had to return to boot camp.

The in:spa approach is to commandeer a small hotel in a spectacular location and parachute in their own coterie of staff: a cook, a masseur, a nutritionist, a yoga holiday teacher and a couple of personal trainers. This retreat was in Morocco, on the coast near Agadir. It was miles from the nearest tourist resort.

A typical day started just after dawn, often with a run on the beach followed by a huge buffet breakfast. There is no limit to the amount of food you can eat as it’s all healthy. There is no wheat, no dairy, no sugar and no salt.

You are never far from your next physical challenge. I often found myself doing press-ups and lunges under the midday sun. Some of the activities were optional – circuits were not.

At around 11am we were allowed to fuel up on seeds, nuts and fruit. Then we were straight into a 60-minute yoga.

Then a superb buffet lunch would be eaten on the sun deck. There was plenty to eat, with chicken, salads, couscous, fish and vegetables. Stuffed on seconds and with nothing in my diary until 4pm, I would grab a book and a sunhat and doze on a lounger beside the pool.

Meanwhile I was starting to feel a lot more healthy. With no screen to stare at and no mouse to click, my dry-eye condition and tight shoulder had sorted themselves out. Even the ache in my left hip – which had been a constant companion for a couple of years – had gone, apparently a direct correlation to the tension in my right shoulder.

By the end of seven days, I felt fantastic and was mentally charged. With no screens to watch, I had time to read and think about work, life, love and all that.

I don’t image the good effects will last for ever but up to now I am still feeling great. And if I was cured for good, I wouldn’t be able to go back in another 5 years, would I?
