Eamination and labs: Your physican can do an examiantion and laboratory testing to make the correct diagnosis. Since lyme is an infectious disease you may need to see a infectious disese specialist. If the joint pains are due to another reason then the rheumatologist can guide your physician in both the diagnosis and therapy.
