BARRIE, Ont. — Much like the tick that carries it, Lyme disease has reared its ugly head again.
Tyler Andrews said he was working on a home in Ontario’s Muskoka region in 2013 when he started to feel ill.
At the time, the 38-year-old carpenter thought he had the flu and worked during the day and suffered through fevers and chills at night.
It wasn’t until he started losing the feeling in his feet while driving that everything changed.
“It was on Nov. 2, I lost the use of my legs,” Andrews said.
