Ontario girl, 11, offers warning on effects of untreated Lyme disease that could lead to arthritis | CTV News.

Symptons of Lyme disease usually occur in three stages:

  • Stage one: An expanding “bull’s-eye” shaped rash at the site of the tick bite. It generally appears three days to one month after the bite. Other signs include fatigue, chills, fever, muscle and joint pain, and swollen lymph nodes.
  • Stage two: If left untreated, patients may experience central and peripheral nervous system disorders, multiple skin rashes, heart palpitations, and extreme fatigue and general weakness.
  • Stage three: The final stage of the disease can last from months to years. Symptoms include neurological problems and recurring arthritis.
