muscle damage from lyme?

Well i've had this problem 2months now. I think its serious. At first i thought i just pulled my biceps from lifting wieghts...but i really think they could be tworn or something. I've also noticed pain in other muscles * i haven't worked out in 2 months*.....the pain in my other muscles isnt as severe as my biceps. Basically can lyme disease weaken my muscles?? Because wieght lifting basically rips your muscles...then they grow longer while you rest them. So if lymes hurting my muscles....that would explain y i cant gain muscle wieght and why i've lost alot of muslce, and why im taking so long to recover from this?

Re: muscle damage from lyme?

Hi Michael,

Yes it imbedds itsefl in your muscle, bone, brain, organs, everything!!! Yes it weakens your muscles. I got to the point where I could not use my arms or my legs. I know you are trying to build your muscle but that is going to come when treatment gets a hold of those lymie buggers...

You may want to talk to your doctor about a picc line and see if that will help you. Majority of us that have chronic Lyme. like yourself takes along time to get "better" Took me 4 years to see ANY improvement...and now I am 8 years into treatment....

You might also want to talk to your doctor about putting you on more than one antibiotic. I was always on a cocktail of them.

continue with your yoga. wow reading what you wrote about lifting weights that sounds icky...tearing muscle and it rebuilds....ewwwwww....

Stay strong ....
