Babesiosis is a rare and severe tick-borne disease that is emerging in Maine. Signs of babesiosis usually range from no symptoms at all (asymptomatic) to serious disease. Common symptoms include extreme fatigue, aches, fever, chills, sweating, dark urine, and possibly anemia. People who are infected generally make a full recovery as long as they have a healthy spleen and do not have other diseases that prevent them from fighting off infections.
