A.

Lyme disease is transmitted through a bite from a specific type of tick. Early stages of Lyme disease include flu-like symptoms that can include a stiff neck, chills, fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, and joint pain. There may be a large, expanding skin rash around the area of the tick bite. In more advanced disease, nerve problems and arthritis may occur.
