I have heart palps, joint pain & tired all the time. Years ago I had a bulls eye type rash on my shoulder. Is it possible I have Lyme disease?

May be related to it: It could be related to your inflamation - especially any vascular issues. This will depend on the manfestations that you are having. You can discuss that with your physician.
Mothers of children: Mother of Chidren in Lyme, CT noticed there was an epidemic of Juvenile arthritis is their town. The first recognized outbreak of this disease occurred in Connecticut, United States, in 1975. Further investigation by many including Alan Steere of Yale came up with the diagnosis
YES: No one knows for sure how many people in the US have lyme disease; one estimate I have seen is 115, 000 but the number is likely much higher. The CDC says there are about 27, 000 new cases a year but estimates only 1 in 10 are reported, so the CDC estimate is 270, 000 new cases per year. Some Lyme experts feel only 1 in 25 cases are reported, which would mean nearly 700, 000 new cases a year. See comment.See 1 more doctor answer
