|My sister had it about twenty years ago and her symptoms lasted for over a decade. Finally, she just got better. This explains his season.
can really vary wrote:
The good things is, you can still continue to train and even compete, but like mono, until it is competely out of your system, you are going to feel sluggist. 100% recovery from memory takes about 6 months. I coached an athlete who got Lyme Disease and they lost a full season and wasn't 100% until half way into the next.
The recovery period varies depending on the individual. Up to 25% of people who get Lyme Disease continue to battle symptoms for years.
From what I understand, the treatment has gotten much better over the last coule of years from reading about a couple of NCAA athletes. If caught early and you start taking antibiotics, it can literaly be a coule of weeks deal to not be sick and a couple of months to fully get your strenght back. But, as you said, I have also heard of peolpe back in the day battleing Lyme for years, but i think that is when spread into the bones. The problem with Lyme is the initial sysmpton is just fatigue and you forget you got bit by a tick weeks and months ago.
