Nerve pain in rt U/LE & head. Lyme disease that took 2.5yrs to Dx. Is there anything I can do for the horrific nerve pain/mms pain in extreme flares??
Diagnosed w/ Lyme disease, bartonella, & babesia. Have noticed increasingly stiff & painful neck w/ head pain & pressure for past 3 days w/ fever ranging btwn 99.6 & 100.5. Are these symptoms typical?

Finally, blacklegged ticks need to be attached for at least 24 hours before they can transmit lyme disease. This is why it's so important to remove them promptly and to check your body daily for ticks if you live in an endemic area. ...Read more
