Like Thalía, many other celebrities have revealed that they have Lyme disease and confirm how painful and complicated it can be if it is not treated properly.

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria, transmitted by the bite of a black-legged tick. Although the immediate effects are not very striking, the real problem of the disease arises when, after a while, it spreads to other parts of the body, creating much greater problems.

Its initial symptoms include headache, fever, skin rashes, and fatigue. However, as the bacteria spread to other parts of the body, severe pain can occur, as the disease affects the nervous system, muscles, and joints.
