Fluid on the knee, also a big issue. Had a school teacher forced into retirement because of among others. Knee pain, As she was scheduled for knee surgery, she asked me if she could have Lyme. I said lets talk. We sat and had an enjoyable visit and talked about life and other ailments that she had experience over a number of years. All red flags for a Tick related illness scenario. (Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, Mold issues). When the talk was over in about 1 to 2 hrs. Can't remember how long "LYME THING". She had an appointment for an LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor). That was about two years ago. After we talked she postponed the knee surgery to check this stuff out. It turned out she had Lyme and friends (coinfections). Which is why she felt it was time to hang it up and retire. She is doing much better now and she doesn't feel the surgery is necessary now, with her pain pretty much gone. THIS GOES TO SHOW YOU. Lyme is not a 15 minute diagnoses. The best diagnosis is when you sit with a Lyme Literate individual for a time an talk. So if you are suffering with Knee, lower leg and forearm, lower back, spinal pain and issues, neck cracks, severe head aches up and into the back of your head or even blurred vision that flips in and out, and my own personal favorite.
Excruciating, stabbing pain just inside the left chest cavity. I recommend talking with somebody that has some lyme knowledge that can steer you a little in the right directions. It will cut yrs. of suffering, yrs of treatment off the now average journey through Lyme disease. Go to www.lymepa.org or your local lyme support group, www.ahope4lyme.org for my area, or www.throughchallenge.com. That's me. IN MY OPINION You may have Lyme. But if you have any or a number of these issues now or in the past. Life is a blast. Get it back.
