Hi everyone, I'm new here and not yet been tested for Lyme. I have been having some problems for awhile and the Doctors don't seem to know what's going on and they are not really trying hard to figure it out. I did request and MRI to check for MS since I have a lot of those symptoms and it came back clear. So, as I  been searching the Internet which I have been for months I came across Lyme disease and I went, Hmm!. Last year about 4 day's after going fishing I found I tick in my head and never thought anything about it until now. There is one main symptom I'm wondering if any of you have had. My arm for about 4 months now is really sore and it will hurt like heck if I lift with it or turn it the wrong way. Has any of you experienced this? I will list my other symptoms, I'm sure I will forget a few. Thank you so much in advance.
Symptoms:
headaches
jaw, teeth pain
right eye pain
arm pain
leg pain
hand pain
feet and ankle pain
knee pain
numbness and tingling in hands and feet
right big toe numb(for a year now)
twitching
balance problems
fatigue
extreme thirst in the evening (checked for diabetes so it's not that)
right eye is blurry at times
lower back stiffness and aches
hip pain
abdominal pain
swallowing problems
pain that feels like it's in the kidneys(both sides)
Memory problems..I forget the what the heck I was going to do next or forget what I was going to say.
I think that's it, LOL!

Alot of your symptoms sound familiar to me, but I wanted to comment on your arm pain. I was treated for two years for my Lyme and have recently began to relapse. This is a symptom I have been having in my left upper arm - it is sore when I am typing (which is my job), when I reach for things, if I move wrong and I don't sleep on that side so I know it's not because I slept on it funny or anything. It's like in my tricep muscle or upper arm area and spreads. Is this what yours is like?

I will be anxious to hear others comments on this also. Sounds like you need a Lyme test though. I am sure others will come along and give you all the info. Also there are links at the tops for the newbies (basics) that has some great info. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Blessings,
Leah

I agree. Get a lyme test. I also think you may have bart. I have both and I think

I can tell my symptoms apart most of the time. The numb toe makes me think it's

bart too. But, I am not a doctor just a patient trying to survive this 24/7 madness.

Leah this sounds a lot like what I'm eperiencing! Only thing is it really don't bother me when I type, just when I move it to the side or lift something..I don't sleep on my left side either and I have woken up a couple of times and it's completly numb. My left arm is really getting weak.

I see my doctor again on Wednesday and I will ask to get tested.

Thank you so much for repling!

I should have looked at the newbie board like Leah suggested before asking what bart was, sorry..:o)

Thank you seeingstars.

I have a lot to learn about this diease. I had no idea really what lyme diease was until recently. I mean I knew about it but not how bad it really is.
