Lyme disease may be in Blind River area

The Blind River area might have a probable case of Lyme disease.  Algoma Public Health is investigating.  People can become infected with Lyme following a bite from a black-legged tick.  Symptoms could take anywhere from one to four weeks to show up and include fatigue, joint and muscle pain, headaches and a skin rash that looks like a bull’s eye.  The health unit says anyone getting a tick bite and leaving it untreated risks getting heart, joint and nervous system problems.  Last year there were 145 cases of Lyme in Ontario.
