Covid or Lyme disease? They share symptoms

Right now is prime season for Lyme disease

We don’t know if this will make you feel better or worse, but Covid-19 shares a few of the major symptoms of Lyme disease.

Tom Powers at Any Lab Test Now in Tulsa says if you have fever, muscles aches, or fatigue, and you’re worried that you’ve contracted Covid-19, it could actually be Lyme disease.

“What we’re trying to do here is bring awareness about Lyme disease, because this is the high season for it,” Powers said.

So it’s something to keep in mind, especially he says if you know you were bitten by a tick or if you’ve been out camping or hiking in the woods and such.

Getting tested for Lyme disease is pretty straightforward.

It’s done by drawing your blood, and they can have a result in a day or two.
