Ticks that carry Lyme disease can also carry other infectious diseases. The most common are babesia, ehrlichia, and bartonella.

Babesia is a protozoal parasite which infect red blood cells and eventually destroy them. Babesia infections are similar to malarial which is also a protozoal parasite, but carried and transmitted by mosquitos.

Symptoms of the Lyme disease co-infection babesia include headaches, fatique, depressed appetite, muscle and joint pain, balance problems, feelings of chest compression, shortness of breath or 'air hunger', fever, chills, nausea, excessive sleepiness, cough, night sweats and often drenching sweats, depression, and spleen and/or liver enlargement.
