    Lyme's? Neck/Back/Shoulder Pain, Muscle Ache, Skin Hypersensitive, Eye Sensitivity

    So it all started around this time last year. I would get pretty bad tension-like headaches that would persist for weeks at a time, the worst lasting 3 months. In October 2011 it went away, and I was fine til January of this year. I woke up one day with a stiff neck/headache, and every day after that it worsened until i went to the ER feeling faint/dizzy/weak. Ever since the trip to the ER i have been experiencing a myriad of symptoms that no Doctor I see can explain.

    The consistent pain in my neck/shoulders/back is always present, accompanied by shadowy vision/floaters (24x7), Slight burning/cold feelings in my feet, 24/7 muscle aches in my arms/legs/chest, skin hypersensitivity (if i touch any part of my body it will feel like i have sunburn there for a few minutes), and facial flushing.

    Brain MRI, EMG, X-rays, blood work, EKG were all normal. MRI revealed I have Paranasal Sinus Inflammatory Disease, but otherwise was normal. Neuro assured me it wasn't neuropathy due to the EMG result. Tested for Lymes by a GP which was negative, and again by an IDS that was also negative.

    Been taking a daily multi vitamin & b12. 27 years old, 6 ft tall 150 lbs. I also work at a computer 8-10 hours a day and have poor posture. Was very healthy up until this.

    I recently saw a rheumatologist who thinks it might be Fibromyagia. I was then referred to a physical therapist, that believes it is in fact a result of poor posture and sitting in front of a computer for 10-12 hours a day.

    Would body aches/headaches, eye sensitivity, and skin hypersensitivity be contributed to Lyme's? I never have Fever, Fatigue, heart problems, etc. and the issues NEVER go away- all have been chronic for 6 months with the only issue prior being headaches.

    If you want to know if your symptoms are related to lyme disease then you need to see a lyme specialist, an LLMD (lyme literate medical doctor). No other type of doctor can advise you on this. Please see the sticky at the top of this board titled "Lyme Newbies" for more information.

    Wishing you well,
