TORONTO — A young Canadian woman has been left with the brain of a 70-year-old after suffering from Lyme disease for more than seven years without treatment because she says tests failed to give her a proper diagnosis.
St. Catharines, Ont., woman Nikki Kent was bitten by a tick in 2013 at the age of 17, but didn’t think much of it at the time. Kent said she noticed the tick on her leg as she sat by her pool, but simply plucked it off and moved on.
