Amy Schumer has recently revealed on her Instagram that she has been diagnosed with Lyme disease.
The disease is transmitted to humans from small infected ticks. It can cause rashes, flu like symptoms aswell as aches and pains in the limbs.
"Anyone get LYME this summer?" Amy wrote on her Instagram.
"I got it and I’m on doxycycline. 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."
Amy's followers were quick to offer their support to the comedian...
"Knock. It. Out. Be careful, follow Dr's orders and take your meds." one person wrote. "Long term Lyme is a serious deal. Take good care! (my son had Lyme 3x, last one was a doozy)."
We wish Amy a full and speedy recovery! Most people with Lyme can be cured with appropriate treatment and if the disease is caught early.
