Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis knee doxycycline

Avatar f tn The test came back negative. He wanted to start me on doxycycline to see if this helped my condition. Prior to seeing the lyme specialist I started having more pain in my hands and feet. I also have terrible muscle pain I think because of inflammation in the body. The doxycycline has helped take away the terrible pain in my hands and feet. It has also helped with my reactive hypoglycemia.
Avatar n tn I have a host of medical problems - most significant are bilateral hip arthroplasty, knee trauma (ligaments and meniscus), a recently broken femur, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and a chronic infection in my body that started with my first hip replacement 20 years ago. I take daily oral anitbiotics (Doryx/doxycycline) and have IV antibiotics once or twice a year when it gets out of control. I recently had a TB test and I started having severe pain in my joints and arm.
Avatar f tn Finally about 4 or 5 yrs ago I moved to Reston, VA and my knees were swollen and I could barely walk, I was probably 48 years old, too young for osteoarthritis. Finally went to the right rheumatologist and told him I had been tested for Lyme twice. He asked if my joint fluid had ever been tested and I said no. He tested it and sure enough it came back positive.

Avatar n tn I also have involuntary muscle twitches but I believe its from my adderall (i take for adhd) My father has been diagnosed with rheumatoid and osteoarthirits...im 33. Had knee surgery at 26, now other knee is going. I crack constantly. Google degenerative autoimmune diseases...
Avatar n tn I am 24 and have been having these vibrations above my left knee. It started on a Sunday while I was at the grocery store! I have been having knee/shin soreness in the same leg. The vibrations don't hurt, they are just weird. It is surprising that no one has any answers! Too bad there is not a DR. on this site!
Avatar n tn I have had this happen in my fingers for years, but in the past few months I have had vessels pop on my leg (side of calf just below knee) and on the inside of my right wrist. This one was prettly painful and I kept pressure on it until the burning subsided. Has anyone else had this happen in these areas?
Avatar f tn yes, burning hot knife pain in several areas of the feet and a hot knife a couple inches above right knee... really the bottom of the right quadricep. Also, general achiness in my legs which I have never had before and extreme fatigue that can last 3 to 7 days and then I'll be okay for awhile, even though I feel as if something is wrong. Its chronic, but not in intensity. A bit of a roller coaster but I dread the mornings. Absolutely dread having to take those first steps...
551343 tn?1506834118 I am two weeks into Doxycycline treatment that will last a month and will follow-up from there. It's a scary yet positive prognosis as with the right doctors I can most likely be treated aggressively and reduce the symptoms I feel on a daily basis. Thank you for reading my story.
