Are they different for every person, or does everyone eventually develop the same symptoms to varied degrees? For example, is it possible for one person to have debilitating neurological issues while someone else never has them? Is it possible for one person to become unable to walk while another person can walk just fine but has pain throughout the body? Or one person has minor aches and pains, but never anything serious?

I've been curious about this but haven't really been able to find an answer. The question popped into my mind because when asking around different places about Lyme, one person reported that as a child they were bitten by a tick and developed the rash, were given anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic medications until the symptoms went away (joint and muscle pains) and haven't had issues ever since (that was 35 years ago).

So that raised the question in my mind if the symptoms are different for each person with Lyme.

Yes to all your questions. There are some symptoms that more people have, but it's not universal.

Everyone is different. Wherever your body is weak is usually what gets targeted.

For example, my friend's thyroid and fibromylgia has gone nuts since Lyme. Pain and problems a 9 out of 10 (her mom has these too, but Lyme just brought it all out of hiding and it's waaaaaaaaay worse than her mom's).

For me, allergies went nuts. I was having reactions when I wasn't even around triggers. It made no sense. My immune system was just attacking everything.

Yes! Mine was mostly arthritic and it seems that most here have the neuro Lyme.

Lyme can go dormant and come back when there is a trauma. So even being "clear" of Lyme for 35 yrs does not mean it's gone forever, unfortunately.
