Doctor, I’m exhausted and have a fever. Do I have COVID? Could it be the flu or even Lyme?
Lyme is known to be the “Great Imitator”. Its symptoms often mimic those of flu and most recently, COVID-19 infections. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the trio of Lyme/flu/COVID-19 share 4 common symptoms of fever/chills, fatigue, muscle aches, and headache. It’s critical in this 2020-2021 respiratory season and beyond to properly diagnose Lyme from flu and/or COVID-19, so that healthcare professionals can correctly treat their patients for the corresponding ailment. Lyme, in particular, can have long-term debilitating consequences if not treated early enough. Join Quidel and Dr. Carfora in this webinar to discuss the complication and possible solutions for diagnosing Lyme from flu and COVID-19. Dr. Carfora is a Board Certified in Anti-aging & Functional Medicine since 2006 and has been practicing Family Medicine on Long Island for over 25 years.
