Joint pain: You can try an anti-inflammatory but ideally your primary care doctor or an infectious disease specialist can prescribe medication.

Treat Lyme, herbs &: Obviously it is crucial to treat the underlying cause, lyme infection, but while this is being done i advise anti-inflammatory agents. Drugs like Ibuprofen cause GI bleeding so i advise meriva (a very absorbable form of curcumin), boswellia, fish oil & proteolytic ennzymes. Also try the anti-inflammatory diet- see www.Drweil.Com/drw/u/art02012/anti-inflammatory-dietinflammatory diet.

Needs eval: Rheumatologic evaluation required to assess if had lyme disease and if joint pain related. Instaflex is not a treatment.
