Lyme disease is a type of bacterial infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. This disease is transmitted through a vector, which is a tick. Once bitten, an infection may cause symptoms similar to flu as well as joint pain and swelling. In worse cases, the nervous system may be affected causing dizziness, headaches, and other symptoms.
