Hugh Hefner's Wife Crystal Hefner Reveals She Has Lyme Disease!

| Filed under: HealthSickHugh Hefner

Crystal dishes deets about her diagnosis.

So sad.

On Sunday, Crystal Hefner made a big announcement about her health! Hugh Hefner's wife took to Instagram to reveal she's been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease.

The blonde beauty posted a shocking PSA about ticks — which carry and spread the illness — and how unnoticeable they can be.

She also shared her own story in the powerful pic's caption, writing:

"If you have EVER GONE HIKING, please get tested for #LymeDisease. The best lab to do this is called 'Igenex' they are based out of Palo Alto. I was diagnosed a few days ago and have a long road ahead of me. Supposedly you get it from ticks but I have absolutely no recollection of being bit or having a rash or ANYTHING."

Wow. We can't even imagine how she must've felt when doctors told her the news!

But the gorgeous gal is using her scary situation as an opportunity to inform others about the awful disease, adding:

"Symptoms can range from sore muscles, sore back, sore neck, anxiety, fatigue, heart palpitations, muscle twitches, bladder pain, vision or hearing problems, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, brain fog, memory problems. Having just one of these could mean you have Lyme. Please please get tested."

She continued to raise awareness about the illness in the lengthy post, by drawing attention to other ways it can be transmitted, saying:

"It is a disease so many people are living with and is becoming an epidemic. 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. Lyme is also related to syphilis and can be sexually transmitted and also passed from mother to child during pregnancy."

We feel just terrible that the Playboy playmate is struggling with the sickness, but we just love that she's still trying to help inform others who may have it as well!

Ch-ch-check out her full post (below):

If you have EVER GONE HIKING, please get tested for #LymeDisease. The best lab to do this is called "Igenex" they are based out of Palo Alto. I was diagnosed a few days ago and have a long road ahead of me. Supposedly you get it from ticks but I have absolutely no recollection of being bit or having a rash or ANYTHING. Most importantly there are SO MANY of you carrying Lyme that don't even know you have it. Probably because the ticks can be the size of specs. I always thought of ticks to be big and noticeable. The symptoms are vast and when it has been left untreated for a long time can turn into MS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Dementia and ALS. Symptoms can range from sore muscles, sore back, sore neck, anxiety, fatigue, heart palpitations, muscle twitches, bladder pain, vision or hearing problems, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, brain fog, memory problems. Having just one of these could mean you have Lyme. Please please get tested. It is a disease so many people are living with and is becoming an epidemic. 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.
