bad rib pains

Hi,

I've had lyme for a year or more. Have been treated with 5 months of antibiotics. Have been off them for a month now. I feel pretty good except that I have severe rib pains and pains around the chest. I'm thinking they are ribs because they are sore when I touch them. I've had all the heart stuff and they say I'm fine.

Has anybody seen this type of symptom? The lyme has seem to migrate to my chest area. Next approach is doing IV for a month.

Thanks,

crc9

Re: bad rib pains

Hello,

I have been on medicines since June and still have the occassional rib pain episode which last a few hours. Before being diagnosed with lyme though, I had them terrible and could not figure out why. Doctors even did ultrasounds to check my gallbladder, liver etc but I would be doubled over in pain and could not be touched.

It does get better.
