Lyme disease is an illness caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi, a complex microbe known as a spirochete. Lyme disease is a multi-systemic illness, if left untreated it can become a severely debilitating illness affecting the central nervous system, joints, and multiple organs, including the heart and brain. It presents in multiple-stages from: acute (early stage) to chronic (late stage or persisting) illness.
