Lyme disease can hit anyone at any time. You can catch it from the bite of an infected tick - they look like tiny spiders - but it takes anything up to three months to get ill. 

It feels like very bad flu, but can also cause extreme pain or numbness, tingling, electric shock feelings, irregular heart beats, headaches and eye problems, paralysis of the face, and even encephalitis. 

You treat it with antibiotics, and some people get better, but others are left with these life-altering symptoms permanently. 

Lyme is one of the most under-researched diseases in the western world. According to the World Health Organisation, it's been increasing across Europe at 14% a year.  

We desperately need more research to tell us how to cure Lyme disease in everyone.

Within my lifetime I hope to see a reliable test and proper treatment for those suffering from tick borne diseases, but preferably a cure.
