Psychiatric Lyme disease has been linked with virtually every psychiatric disorder and can affect people of all ages and different backgrounds.
Some 20,000 Americans are infected and treated every year, while countless others go undiagnosed.
The illness has physical symptoms that include fever, headaches and joint pain; but when left untreated, Lyme disease can "rewire" the brain.
As Lyme disease progresses, it can attack the nervous system, producing learning disabilities, mood swings, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, obsessive behavior, and other psychiatric syndrome.
