My knee hasnt swelled in a while, now im on doxy and its coming up again. Is this a herx symptom.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

This hasn't personally happened to me, but I do have some thoughts.

I remember you saying this was one of your first symptoms...I've read in many places that old symptoms will return and then diminish during treatment, so this doesn't surprise me to hear.

Soon it will be gone!

LOL...I've been reading about lyme for almost 3 years...it's just been a while since I've spent a lot of time on the boards because I wasn't back on treatment until now! :)

Crappy...not crappy like herxing, just my normal crappy. It's been 15 days since I started tx...IDK what to think.

I barely move at all. I left the house once in the past 15 days and that was just to lay out in the back yard and get some fresh air. I pretty much am on the couch 24/7.

I'm not on the Rocephin yet...I'm having insurance problems. I'm so angry at the people handling my insurance - they're behind and switching their computer systems over, so it's taking longer than expected to get everything going.

When I went to the doctor this time, I had an attack of symptoms a few days prior and that's when I became barely able to walk and pretty much like a zombie all the time. It has eased up some since I started tx, but I think that would have happened naturally.
