Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Up to 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the United States every year, with New York state accounting for thousands of cases alone.

Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue and that tell-tale “bullseye” rash, but only a small number of people ever see it, leaving many completely unaware they’ve even been exposed.

That’s exactly what happened to NewsChannel 9’s Nicole Sommavilla, who is now opening up about Living with Lyme, and her four year search for a diagnosis.
