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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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?

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 for prostate issues can also cause similar symptoms. See your doctor, have him evaluate you. ...Read more
