I would go for the second opinion to the different doctor preferably proffesor of Rheumatology. As far as I know the symptoms of lyme are very similar to RA and it's gard to diagnose both. But I don't have Lyme disease, I had RA in the past - that's what I would recommend though.
RA - diagnosed July 2010 until December 2015


Plaquenil, Vit D 700 IU, Vit B complex, Vit C

Warfarin, Baclofen
