Crystal Harris has been diagnosed with Lyme disease and she’s urging everyone to get tested.
“I was diagnosed a few days ago and have a long road ahead of me,” Hugh Hefner’s 29-year-old wife wrote on Instagram Monday. “Supposedly you get it from ticks but I have absolutely no recollection of being bit or having a rash or ANYTHING.”
Harris says many people have Lyme disease but don’t know it. She lists symptoms that can include vision or hearing problems, sore muscles, heart palpitations, memory trouble and generic flu symptoms.
“It is a disease so many people are living with and is becoming an epidemic,” Harris continued. “I always thought I was a hypochondriac. Doctors told me it was just ‘stress’ or ‘all in my head’ but I finally figured it out and you can too.”
