At least once a month we get a call from someone who either has Lyme, or a family member with Lyme. It never used to be that way. After a 25 year career as an Occupational Therapist, I started this company, and began to hear what health concerns were most commonly on people’s minds. In the beginning years, fibromyalgia was a common complaint, along with headaches and fatigue. In the years I worked with Dr. Brown our Billings Pain and Allergy Clinic, there were just a few cases of Lyme, presumably all contracted from tick bites.
Times have changed. Even the definition of where you get Lyme is different. It now refers to illnesses that are transmitted from insects, including fleas, mites, spiders, mosquitoes as well as ticks. Frankly, I felt safer before I read this!
