My xrays for knee/spine/hips all came back. No sign of arthritis of any sort. No damage seen on the knee either. Do you recommend I go for mri?
 
Knee pain continues - but decreasing overtime very very slowly i think. llmd and rhuemy both believe due to bb infection. Rhuemy is insisting I take pain meds.

Hi Pepphell,

This is just my opinion but it may be the bb bacteria. Many Lyme patients have knee pain and swollen knees caused from the bb bacteria. Hopefully it gets better with treatment.

My knees never aches until I started treatment. Wonder if it is the toxins? Had xray and shows nothing. Now tendonitis in elbow. Ugh.

Yay!

I also get a lot of knee pain from lyme disease. I haven't had an x-ray of my knees, but I've had x-rays of other joints, and so far no arthritis for me either. I am kind of worried I've got long-term damage in my knees, just because of how much they have been hurting lately, but I'm going to wait until I'm finished treating for lyme before I investigate that.

If both doctors think the pain is from lyme (which is surprising, since most rhuemies don't believe in it), I would be tempted to continue treating a bit longer, and see if it improves. But you should do whatever makes you the happiest- especially if insurance would cover the MRI.

I had a bad knee before lyme. I had a torn meniscus a few years ago and had arthroscopic surgery to repair it. When I got sick with lyme, my worst symptom was my knees, especially the proviously injured one. I got around by getting quatrerly injections and anti-inflamatory drugs. Once I saw a LLMD and my antibiotics changed, my knee pain worsened so badly that I didn't think I could bear it any longer. I spoke with my LLMD and they told me to do a couple of things.. Drink lots of lemon water, eat a high alkaline diet, take tumeric, and most important..start a supplement called Kaprex. I also started plaquenil. I am feeling much better with what they told me to do and I hope to be even better once the Kaprex gets here and I can start that.
 
I was xrayed and it showed severe osteoarthritis. Both my ortho and LLMD believe it was caused by the lyme.

I've read that the bacteria settles into injured tissue, bone, etc. Maybe that is why our previously injured body parts hurt so badly.

CG, if bacteria settles there, does it mean it never gets killed?
