Symptoms of Lyme disease vary and can affect various parts of the body. Lyme disease can cause neurological problems such as meningitis (inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain, Bell's palsy (temporary paralysis of one side of the face), impaired muscle movement (which can occur weeks to years after an untreated infection).

Lyme disease can cause twitching. There are certain common symptoms that many people who have lyme disease get, but they're all subjective to each individual. If the twitching is interfering with your activities of daily living, you should consult immediate attention from your physician so it can be monitored.
