I have been having twitching, like I can't sit still sometimes wondering if it's my nerves or could be related to Lyme disease ?

I have been having twitching, like I can't sit still sometimes wondering if it's my nerves or could be related to Lyme disease ?

Depends: If the twitching is in your entire body, it could be a tic disorder, which can actually happen any time in your time irregardless of age, or less likely seizure activity. If in your limbs, it may be due neuropathy, or a degeneration of the nerves in hands and feet. If it is a tic, i would see a neurologist. These are treatable, rarely a sign of something aggressive. ...Read more

Last year I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The last few days both of my nipples are sore to the touch?

Last year I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The last few days both of my nipples are sore to the touch?

Sensitivity: I doubt one has anything to do with another. Have your doctor check your estrogen levels (which if your taking intramuscular testosterone for example...will convert excess androgen to the female hormone as well). If your hypothyroid..you may be getting too much thyroid replacement hormone. Flomax (tamsulosin) for prostate issues can also cause similar symptoms. See your doctor, have him evaluate you. ...Read more

More evaluation: If your symptoms worsen with exertion (claudication), you may need an evaluation for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). While these may be simply muscle cramps, be sure to talk with your doctor about sciatica (pain that originates from lower back via nerves traveling to the leg), tendon rupture, and arterial aneurysm. Your doctor may also want you to see a Rheumatologist. ...Read more

5 days sore throat, severe body/joint ache & fever (100-102). Thought it was strep or virus, but today i find a bullseye-like bite on my trunk. Can it be Lyme disease? Is it too early for blood test?

5 days sore throat, severe body/joint ache & fever (100-102). Thought it was strep or virus, but today i find a bullseye-like bite on my trunk. Can it be Lyme disease? Is it too early for blood test?

Epidemiology : When early lyme is suspected, the diagnosis is based on clinical grounds. Taking a picture of the rash & having a doctor examine it before it disappear is advisable. Other things can cause a bulls eye rash such as a fixed drug eruption, southern tick-associated rash illness, etc. Early recognition is very important. Its too early for an antibody blood test. Epidemiology will help your doc answer. ...Read more
