Lyme disease symptoms in humans: Signs of the disease YOU could be missing
Public Health England said the disease causes 2,000 to 3,000 confirmed cases of Lyme disease in England and Wales each year.
Around 15 per cent of cases are acquired while people are abroad.
However the condition is often very difficult to diagnose. This is why many Lyme patients are often misdiagnosed with different conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, ME, or even depression.
Early symptoms of Lyme disease often present as a flu-like illness with symptoms including fever and muscle tone.
