Sore neck lyme

Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck lyme


Avatar m tn About 2 weeks before Christmas I developed what felt like a developed severe pain (sort of like a stiff neck but much worse) on the right side going up to where the neck/skull meet & a really bad headache in the right frontal sinus area. Advil, Ultram & Flexeril didn't help at all. Percocet 10 barely even helped. My doctor said that I had a large muscle knot/spasm on the LEFT side (top of shoulder close to my neck) that actually was causing visible shortening there.
Avatar f tn I had an extremely 'stiff neck' at the start of lyme [didn't know anything about lyme at the time] - my neck was very painful for months - the pain was mainly in the 'trapezium' muscles - also would get very sore - wierd feelings in my collar bone areas. I have had what you describe as 'pinching' - I often felt nauseous from the neck pain.
Avatar f tn You live in lyme country. All of your symptoms are classic lyme. The antibiotics may not be helping because they are not the correct one for this type of infection. A rash will not always appear. My husband, my son and myself never had a rash and we have lyme. Better to be safe then sorry about getting tested. The longer you have lyme the less likely you will get rid of it.
237053 tn?1258828426 Does anyone know about this? I read that it can rupture or break loose lyme cysts and make people feel worse. Is this true!!??/ Crazy... I know but... I had a massage (deep tissue.. that I must say HURT LIKE HELL), and literally the next day is when I noticed the cognitive problems and weakness. Maybe it is just coincidence, but very strange. I had had the slight numbness in my toes and the stiff painful neck shoulders prior, so I thought a massage would do me good. NO!
2040239 tn?1329839401 ve been told and have a sore back all of the time (along with many osteophytes (spurs) in neck). The Prickling is a constant now and mostly located on my whole back, neck and head areas. When I work, do housework, walk, stress, practically move, it gets worse. I also get extremely hot all of the time (in menopause, but don't think it's related). I finding it very hard to work or function with this and am worried why it might be so bad.

Avatar m tn I was asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis. I was prescribed Doxycycline for 4 weeks and I had pretty bad headaches and a sore neck (back of neck) during treatment. Now that treatment is over for almost 2 weeks now, I continue to have some headaches, but much milder and the neck pain is improved too - but it's still there on a daily basis.
1132574 tn?1271672466 Seems my pain has now traveled up to my neck/shoulders. I have burning pain in my shoulders/upper back/neck. Along with tingling and occasional aching type pain in both my hands, I have occasional shooting pains in both my calfs, Even some occasional tingling/pain in my face. I also have a hot spot feeling on my right ankle. I'm having an MRI of my neck on Wednesday to see if there is a pinched nerve/herniated disc. My ortho says if that shows nothing then I should next see a neuro.
666921 tn?1254990618 considering all the research I have done on lyme -----but----- does anyone know what lyme symptoms are ?!!
Avatar f tn I just think it is weird that this is my second bout with viral meningitis and the head pain associated was almost the same head neck /pain when I had Lyme. I am thinking about going to see a Lyme MD to see what they think. Not sure if it is worth it or not.
237053 tn?1258828426 I know that swollen or sore lymph nodes are a sign of infection. Is this common in Lyme and does anyone else experince this? It has been a LONG day... Thanks for your support.
Avatar m tn I have had Lyme before, Mono as well. I have eosinophilic esophagitis and take omeprazole for it daily. Lyme came back negative (though it did when I had it last time too). My SED rate is normal, all rheumatological tests came back clean, as did HIV and lupus. No abnormalities on a CBC and my B12 is fine. I'm to a point where Im just at a complete loss. I hope someone here has had better luck.
1132574 tn?1271672466 Just wondering if any of you out there have experienced sharp achey like pains in your hands? Also have had a sore neck, burning pain shoulders/ mid-back. In my neck It sometimes feels like I hit my funny bone but it's my neck not my arm! Has any one had this? Leave it to me to have such weird stuff! Does this sound more like MS than Lyme?
Avatar m tn Hi...these are common symptoms of lyme disease. I had them all. The brain fog, floaters, vision flashes, etc. Here is a message I recently posted on lyme. Sorry to cut and paste, but it is easier than retyping. Get yourself to an LLMD NOW as only they can diagnose and get you well (you CAN get well.) Regular MD's will tell you you are fine, give you a test that says you don't have lyme, and make you feel you are crazy. _______________________ Have you considered Lyme disease?
456995 tn?1206589507 nausea, sore throat, gritty eyes, blurred vision, stiff neck, hot flashes, severe decrease in energy, sleep problems, itchy skin, hyperventilating, acid reflux, restless leg syndrome and on and on. You have to find an expert in Lyme. They might use Igenex Labs, not the local Quest labs, etc. They are a better lab for diagnosing lyme. Your pcp probably won't be much help. For some reason, almost twelve years after I went through this, doctors are still not as educated as they should be.
Avatar m tn I also have been having intermittent pain in my left jaw which makes it hard to eat. My back and neck are painful, and my neck creaks when i move it up and down. My joints are very painful, and I cramp easily. I also have a lot of gas, and constant stomach gurgling, which is characteristic of IBS. I have also been losing hair rapidly which is unusual.
Avatar m tn Welcome to MedHelp Lyme -- Sorry to hear what you are going through -- you are, in my not-medically-trained opinion, having symptoms that could be associated with Lyme disease. Many MDs are not familiar with the broad range of symptoms that may appear in a Lyme infection and often cycle seasonally and also every few weeks (it's different in everyone). That is, I think, part of what makes it hard for docs to recognize Lyme when they see it.
Avatar m tn Lyme disease starts off with flu like symptoms. IGeneX is a specialist Lyme lab in the US. "Some patients insist that IGeneX's tests have been instrumental in detecting the Lyme disease that other laboratories missed. One such patient is Ronald Hamlen, 64, a plant biologist from Maryland who worked at DuPont for 22 years before retiring recently. Tests run by IGeneX, he said, detected Lyme disease that was missed by other laboratories.
Avatar n tn Have you considered lyme disease? Facial tinging is a common lyme symptom See the symptom list far below. (This is only some of them...there are really more than 70.) The key to getting diagnosed properly is the doctor. I had a terrible time back in Feb-April of 2010 with weird symptoms, dizziness, anxiety, forgetfulness, brian fog, twitching, etc, etc. I had dozens of tests, including a lyme ELISA test...all normal.
