  • Explorer's Lyme disease warning

The Pennsylvania tally, along with that of the six New England states - Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont - accounted for about 60 percent of the country's Lyme disease cases.

The study found that California and Florida had the largest spikes in positive test results for Lyme disease.

"Lyme disease is a bigger risk to more people in the United States than ever before", said Harvey W. Kaufman, M.D., senior medical director for Quest Diagnostics and head of the company's Health Trends research program, said in a press release. "While Lyme disease is increasingly common in Vermont, Lyme carditis itself is very rare", Approximately 1 percent of all Lyme disease cases reported nationally to CDC experience Lyme carditis.

Lyme disease is still most prevalent in the Northeast, with seven states - Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont - accounting for 60 percent of all cases previous year.

Lyme disease remains most prevalent in the Northeastern United States. Now, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia have residents who have tested positive for Lyme, a bacterial infection that can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including joint aches, fatigue, facial palsy and neck stiffness. The report found that Pennsylvania had the most positive cases past year: 10,001.

The agency said that around 30,000 cases of the disease are reported by state health departments and Washington, DC every year.

Georgia, Arizona, Ohio, Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia also saw disturbing increases in Lyme diagnoses according to Quest Diagnostics.

Between 1985 and 2014, only nine people died worldwide from Lyme carditis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Levine says while tick-borne diseases can cause serious illness, Lyme disease, including Lyme carditis, is treatable.

Lyme disease is spread by bites from infected blacklegged ticks and deer ticks.

A telltale sign of Lyme disease is a bull's-eye rash, but rashes with other shapes are common, too.

Levine said that as long as Lyme disease and Lyme carditis are caught early, they can be treated effectively with antibiotics.
