Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine reveals he has Lyme Disease

Dave Mustaine revealed on Twitter that he has Lyme disease and added that he’s doing better.


Mustaine was asked whether or not it was easy to make the transition between home life and road life. “I needed to come home,” he wrote. “I have a tick bite from the farm that made me really sick for the last few months and I am really tired.’

Another fan said that he should make sure he didn’t have Lyme disease, to which Mustaine replied, “That’s what it is.” However, he also told somebody else who expressed concern, “I’m OK. Don’t worry.”

Check it out:

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through bites from blacklegged ticks who have been infected with it. Symptoms include fever, headaches, fatigue and a rash. Treatment typically consists of taking antibiotics for a few weeks, although some ticks can also transmit other diseases.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
