What is wrong with me?

I am 50 and feel 90! I have aches and pains that I don't think I should have yet. My legs hurt really bad, mostly when I am relaxed ( bedtime) and my arms too. What is the deal? Does anyone have similar pains? Do you know what it is?:

Re: What is wrong with me?

Hello,

I have been being treated for lyme for a few months now and had all the same issues as you. They got a lot better as far as all the muscle aches and pains. Even bones would hurt. Not too much of an issue anymore. I had a bad couple of days a little over a week ago but it has improved.

I am 35 and felt like hell most days. Like I said, now not so bad, plus I know what is wrong with me so it helps.

Are you being treated or have you been tested for lyme or co-infections yet?

I have lyme and bartonella and now my doctor believes I may have babesia.

Re: What is wrong with me?

Hello,

The pain you have is nerve pain.That's why tylenol and advil don't work so great. I still have pains and twitching after 2 years of ABX.The pain is much less now though compared to before abx. I also notice it more at night,but it may be because I'm still and quiet.I probably don't notice it as much when running around at work.

Re: What is wrong with me?

Hi Doni50, welcome to the board!

How long have you been sick? Do you think you may have Lyme disease?

Below is a Lyme symptom list. You can have any combination of symptoms.

Unexplained fevers, sweats, chills, or flushing
Unexplained weight change--loss or gain
Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina
Unexplained hair loss
Swollen glands
Sore throat
Testicular pain/pelvic pain
Unexplained menstrual irregularity
Unexplained milk production: breast pain
Irritable bladder or bladder dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction or loss of libido
Upset stomach
Change in bowel function-constipation, diarrhea
Chest pain or rib soreness
Shortness of breath, cough
Heart palpitations, pulse skips, heart block
Any history of a heart murmur or valve prolapse?
Joint pain or swelling
Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back
Muscle pain or cramps
Twitching of the face or other muscles
Headache
Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain
Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains
Facial paralysis (Bell's Palsy)
Eyes/Vision: double, blurry, increased floaters, light sensitivity
Ears/Hearing: buzzing, ringing, ear pain, sound sensitivity
lncreased motion sickness, vertigo, poor balance
Lightheadedness, wooziness
Tremor
Confusion, difficulty in thinking
Difficulty with concentration, reading
Forgetfulness, poor short term memory
Disorientation: getting lost, going to wrong places
Difficulty with speech or writing
Mood swings, irritability, depression
Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
Exaggerated symptoms or worse hangover from alcohol

It is very important to see a kowledgeable doctor. Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. No test is completely reliable, and results can vary by lab.

Besides Lyme, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, two types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected. It may affect treatment choice and progress. It is important to be tested for these by a Lyme reputable lab such as IgeneX in Palo Alto, CA.

If you need a doctor recommendation, let us know.

It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2005 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses (on-line). He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the book "Everything You Need To Know about Lyme Disease
(2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.

Hang in there okay?
