The months of severely cold temperatures did not help kill off the over-population of ticks and the Center for Disease Control warns Lyme disease cases may be on the rise. According to WCVB.com, the changing climate has lead to a rise in Lyme disease cases. By law, all Lyme cases must be reported and the numbers have grown steadily in the area from 752 in 2010 to 1,376 in 2013.

The CDC warns to take the necessary precautions in order to prevent contracting Lyme when enjoying outdoor activities. Wear clothing that reduces skin exposure and always check for ticks frequently after walking or hiking in heavily wooded areas.

Lyme disease symptoms include headaches, fever and joint pain, muscle weakness, and heart problems. If you think you may be experiencing the beginning stages of Lyme please call your physician as soon as possible.

Some neighborhoods in Mattapoisett and Rochester have high numbers of lyme cases.
