I just had a neck xray, an EMG to measure nerve signals from my cervical spine and also a MRI of my cervical spine.

They showed degnerative disc disease but not unusual for my age. I am 54 yrs. old. There was signal weakness shown by the EMG.
NO one but my LLMD seems to understand that the Lyme disease makes it very painful. My LLMD has given me injections in he base of my neck for the pain.

Anyway, I am trapped in the traditional medicine world again due to insurance. I start physical therapy for my neck next week. I will let you know if that helps.

kendal,

Head and neck symptoms are my #1 lyme symptom.  I've read here and other places that minocycline is the med of choice for head and neck.  When I started treatment, I went 8 weeks on doxy, then switched to 8 weeks of minocycline.

400mg per day on the doxy (which was 2x100mg pills, twice per day)

100mg per day on the mino (which is 1x50mg pill, twice per day)

I'm turning the corner I think.  Doing well thank you.  I'm in week 15 of antibiotics.  I had symptoms 6-9 months before diagnosis.. and it looks like it will be 6 months of recovery. 

how are you?
