Indeed it can: There are a few ways that psychological symptoms can arise in lyme disease - the disease causes increased pressure in the head which affects blood flow and oxygen and causes all sorts of cognitive/emotional disturbances. The might only last awhile, but they may recur. Antibiotics may or may not help - that's lyme, right? A link: http://www.Newyorker.Com/reporting/2013/07/01/130701fa_fact_specter.
