Transmitted by the bite of a blacklegged tick, the number of cases appears to be increasing across the United States and throughout the world. Youth are especially vulnerable, with the highest incidence occurring among children between the ages of 5 to 14. A parent needs to know about the various types of TBI’s in our area as they often occur together (called “co-infections”) and can cause many different types of problems including, fever, headache joint pains, chronic fatigue, “brain fog,” attentional problems in school, mood shifts, new onset temper tantrums, etc.
