Whats lyme carditis? Is that caused by lyme disease? Ive seen more and more ticks this season then usualThis year, since about April and to this date I have seen adults and elderly becoming severely ill with diseases that, under normal conditions, should not result in hospitalization. I have noted periodic surge patterns to some, namely Lyme carditis, myocarditis pericarditis, and acute coronary events in people without heart conditions. Mix of ages but majority are well under 60, and it has me concerned.
Viral competition is a proposed reason we are not seeing high influenza rate. It was theorized in the 1930s/40's with what is now known as influenza A. At that time Inf A seemingly disappeared for a few years once a new strain (now known as Inf B) emerged and out-competed, so to speak the other.
Epidemiologists today believe Covid out competed influenza in 2020-2021.
My gut feeling is that influenza will hit with vigor this season.
Lyme carditis is caused by the bacteria from black legged ticks, aka deer tick. Tick must have been attached, usually for more than a day, but these ticks are so small they can easily be overlooked. It primarily impacts the electrical conduction system of the heart resulting in unusual slowing of heart rate. Most often it will run it's course over a couple of weeks, needs close monitoring for symptoms (dizziness, passing out, palpitations, chest pain) and it is uncommon to result in need of a pacemaker.Whats lyme carditis?

Nice. N95 if worn properly will protect YOU from airborne disease. I can't even get them at work bc they are saved for the hosp nurses and staff, despite the fact that I do hospital roundsHere it's usually the men that do that! 9 out of 10 times it's a man doing it. Why? lol
We have boxes of them.
