Check for infection: We worry about infection in a situation like this. An infection in one part of the body can seed bacteria to other parts.

I'm having dull pain in my knees and my elbows. Was Advised by Dr. I tested borderline for Lyme's disease. Will the doxycycline100 take the pain away?

Maybe: Doxycycline is an antibiotic that will treat the disease and that will ease the pain. You might find that taking over the counter ibuprofen, naproxen or acetaminophen if you can tolerate them may help with the pain. Also applying heat to the joints or using creams may give some relief. ...Read more

Who is "they"?: You might have "growing pains", but these are usually limited to one leg at a time. There are several more worrisome things that could cause several joints to hurt, so you should definitely ask your parents to take you to a doctor to be tested for arthritis. Good luck! ...Read more

While sleeping i suffer from chest tightness mainly on the right chest and right elbow pain.I experience right knee pain too..What could be the cause?

Hard to say: Pains at night can be a normal result of activities during the day, and even arthritis which is commonly worse at night. Chest tightness is a concerning symptom, especially for a man in his mid 40s. It can suggest a serious problem like heart disease, or more commonly, reflux, or something like asthma.

Both knee pain since 1.5 yr. MRI OK.Now left hand elbow and finger joints burning.RA factor8.6IU/ml.ESR/RPR/ASO/CRP/uric acid normal.Possible reasons?

Unclear polyarthriti: The RF (Rheumatoid factor) assay -which is, I assume the "RA factor"- varies widely from lab to lab, so I am not sure if 8.6 IU/mL is in the reference range or not (the lab should give both the result and the ref range). It's best to talk to a rheumatologist about your symptoms. It sounds complex. There are forms of arthritis which don't show up on blood tests (seronegative); you may have 1 of tho ...Read more

What can I do to prevent hyperextension of my knees and elbows?

Ligamentous laxity: Is a common congenital condition that permits one to hyperextend joints and makes one "double-jointed". There is no need to worry about that when it occurs naturally.
