LYME AND CHILDREN
Children Ages 5-14 are at the Greatest Risk of Acquiring Lyme Disease Around 25% of all reported cases are children. According to research, children are bitten by ticks more frequently around the head and neck, making them more vulnerable to brain and central nervous system infections. The resulting neurologic symptoms of Lyme disease are often misdiagnosed. Lyme Disease can also be transmitted to a child during pregnancy. Lyme pediatric specialist Charles Ray Jones, MD and other leading Lyme specialists have compiled a list of common symptoms of infection in young patients:• fatigue unrelieved by rest • insomnia •headaches • mitochondrial dysfunction • syncope, POTS or Neurally MediatedHypotension • nausea, abdominal pain • seizure disorders • impaired concentration • poor short-term memory • inability to sustain attention •difficulty thinking and expressing thoughts • difficulty reading and writing •overwhelmed by schoolwork • difficulty making decisions • confusion • outbursts and mood swings • fevers/chills • dizziness • noise and light sensitivity •increased incidence of ear and throat infections • increased incidence of pneumonia • irritability • joint and body pain • poor muscle tone • gastroesophageal reflux • small windpipe (tracheomalacia) • cataracts and other eye problems • developmental delays (language, motor) • learning disabilities •psychiatric problems (anxiety, depression, OCD) • autism or Asperger's type presentation Children do not typically have all of these symptoms, but rather, a cluster of seemingly unrelated conditions that are often overlooked by pediatricians and specialists. Often times, a child is diagnosed with evolving conditions, because their symptoms and presentation do not quite "fit", but doctors believe that something is wrong. Among Jones’ patients, 50% have no known history of deer tick attachments and fewer than 10% have a history of an erythema migrans Lyme rash (bull’s-eye).
