Not traditionally: The term "chronic Lyme disease" refers to the symptoms of continued headache, joint pains,fatigue, and sometimes cognitive difficulties that can continue to occur for months after the initial infection and antibiotic course. Gastrointestinal involvement as with the liver and gallbladder suggest another diagnosis.
