Abstract
This document has been superseded and the new version can be found <a href="https://www.cpwr.com/wp-content/uploads/publications/CPWR_Lyme_Disease_0.pdf"target="_blank">here</a>. Lyme disease affects everyone differently. Some people get sick in about a week. The first sign may be a rash near the tick bite. Other people may not seem sick until months or years after a tick bite. The disease can permanently damage your nervous system and joints. Sometimes joint replacement is needed.
