Befuddlement is among the long-term symptoms. http://news.aol.com/story/_a/bush-t...r/20070809064009990001?ncid=NWS00010000000001 The treatment was revealed only when the White House made public all the results of Bush's annual physical exam on Wednesday. It showed up in the "past medical history" section and in the summary along with other skin conditions. Bush was treated for what his doctors described as "early, localized Lyme disease" after developing the characteristic bullseye rash. Lyme disease is a tick-borne infection that, if left untreated, can cause arthritis and other problems. Symptoms can include lethargy, joint pain, fever, limping and loss of appetite. A bacterial disease, it can be eradicated with antibiotic treatment in the early stages, but can become more complicated to treat if not caught early.
