Hi nefferdun. I am sorry you are feeling so bad. It can be hard to tell what is from what. Have you ever had the back and arm pain prior to taking Levaquin? I am just speculating, but since this pain comes and goes it could be a herx. It is normal for Lyme symptoms to wax, wane, and migrate.
I cannot believe your doctor charges to ask a question. You should be able to ask questions regarding your treatment. Would you be charged if you faxed your questions to the office?
The meds you are taking are often prescribed, so I have a hard time believing they are ineffective.
Are you taking high-quality acidophilus at least two hours apart from the antibiotics? This may help the diarrhea. If you are taking it, maybe increasing the dose will help.
Hang in there okay?
