I have the same kinds of feelings. Muscles feel sore to touch. I get this along my ribcage. Once I upped my antibiotics, the feelings/pains became more intense. I even have a spot on my left ankle that if I touch it, I have tingling in one of my toes. Weird huh? I told my LLMD this week, when giving him the rundown on my symptoms. He said it was most likely nerve. I will say this. I have been on the Abx. for 3 weeks now. The last 3 days have been the best for me in quite awhile, as far as energy and mood goes. I am still having pain, but have been able to exercise more. I did a detox bath last night and will do one again today. I am trying to hit this from every direction.
And it is so true about the Fibromyalgia. That is what I was wrongly diagnosed with prior to finding my LLMD. I know Fibromyalgia is very real to some, but for me, I was not buying it. The infectious Disease Dr. I saw does not believe in chronic Lyme. Even though I presented with 2 positive High titers and was very symptomatic with history of untreated tick bites. He still was no believer. Most of the time Fibro. is a trash can diagnosis, that they like to give you when they do not know why you are in such pain. I feel so lucky that I found an LLMD that I trust.
I wish you both speedy healing and hope we will all eventually be pain free!
