    28-year-old woman with a history of Lyme disease describes side effects following her COVID-19 vaccine – a case discussion

    28-year-old woman with a history of Lyme disease describes side effects following her COVID-19 vaccine – a case discussion

    This case highlights the findings from a COVID-19 & Lyme Survey.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    Findings: This cross-sectional study reveals a high symptom burden in 1,168 individuals with a history of Lyme Disease. The GSQ-30 measure of symptom burden for 616 individuals with a history of Lyme disease who were vaccinated against COVID-19 was significantly lower than the symptom burden for the 552 who were not vaccinated.
    Here are are a few of the case of individuals with Lyme disease who described side effects.

    CASE 1:
    “After about a week, I began to experience extreme fatigue, difficulties with my lungs (finding it harder to breathe), and heart palpitations. I also struggled to walk any distance as my body would become tired very quickly (these were symptoms I had not experienced for about four years since the start of my Lyme disease treatment).”

    CASE 2:
    “… got extremely ill, felt like the Lyme and babesia was activated and became as strong as it was before I began treatment (and I was very, very sick by then).”

    CASE 3:
    “… severe cognitive issues, arm/leg numbness, rage due to light and sound, purple legs sitting and laying down, no short-term memory, speech stuttering, severe word search, muscle weakness, balance, coordination, double blurred vision, dizziness, heavy head, like my head is balancing on a broomstick, and it is a medicine ball, headache around the base of my neck/skull, weight loss, severe fatigue. I would say my pain and fatigue symptoms were 3-4/10 and now they are 8-9/10. The cognitive/ speech/vision/memory problems and purple legs are post-vaccine.”

    A 16-year-old girl and a 28-year-old woman with a history of Lyme disease shared their experiences after contracting COVID-19

    These two cases highlight the findings from a COVID-19 & Lyme Survey

    Question: What is the clinical presentation of someone with a history of Lyme disease who have contracted a COVID-19 infection?
    Findings: This cross-sectional Survey reveals a high symptom burden in 1168 individuals with a history of Lyme Disease. The symptom burden was the highest for the 288 individuals with a history of Lyme disease and a COVID-19 infection. Nearly one in five individuals with a history of COVID-19 and Lyme disease developed long COVID. Twenty were hospitalized.
    Meaning: Individuals with a history of Lyme disease and COVID-19 have a high symptom burden and are at increased risk of hospitalization and long COVID.

    “A 21-year-old, Division 1 student athlete patient presented with heart palpitations and frequent unprovoked adrenaline rushes,” wrote the authors. His symptoms were initially dismissed as stress.
