“My first ever fishing pole. Anyone get LYME this summer? I got it and I’m on doxycycline," Amy wrote, in a matter-of-fact way.
“I have maybe had it for years. Any advice? Can you have a glass of wine or 2 on it? I know to stay out of the sun. I’m also taking these herbs from cape cod called lyme-2,” she added, asking her followers to weigh in with their own tips and experiences with the condition.
“Please comment or text me on my number in my bio."
According to the Mayo Clinic, early symptoms of Lyme Disease can vary but most often include a ‘bulls-eye’ rash that’s warm to the touch, fatigue, headaches, body aches, a stiff neck and swollen lymph nodes.
Weeks or months later (especially if left untreated), joint pain can occur, along with paralysis and neurological problems such as numbness of the face and impaired muscle movement.
In extreme cases, Lyme Disease can affect your hearing and vision and cause inflammation of the heart and brain.
Thankfully though, most patients will notice an improvement in their symptoms after a few weeks of antibiotics - including Amy, who stated she is taking the prescription drug doxycycline.
“I also want to say that I feel good and am excited to get rid of it,” Amy added.
The I Feel Pretty star is the latest celebrity to speak out about being diagnosed with Lyme Disease, following Justin Bieber, Yolanda and Bella Hadid, Avril Lavigne and Kelly Osbourne.
