Lyme disease can lead to overwhelming physical, neuropsychiatric, and financial consequences. It can be overlooked, in part, because it can be clinically silent early in the illness.

Was your Lyme disease clinically silent early in your illness?

Some individuals are diagnosed with Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS) after a single course of antibiotics. Some doctors assume their illness is a syndrome and do not look further for a persistent infection. Is PTLDS a Lyme disease trap?

Every year more than 300,000 people develop Lyme disease in the USA. One in 20 deer tick bites leads to Lyme disease in some studies. Let's do the math.

300,000 x 20 = 6,000,000 deer tick bites in the USA every year.

Were you one of the millions bitten by a deer tick in the USA this year?
