What do you guys do to help the pain?
I have chronic pain! It drives me nuts! Right now I take Vicoden, Tramadol, Klonopin.....epsom salt baths..etc..
I hopefully will see a pain specialist soon because this is getting crazy. I have been sick since I was young (since I was a baby) but we believe I started having Lyme symptoms around the age of 5. I am 20 now..almost 21 (one month!), and it's terrible. I am being treated by a LLMD a few hours away. Starting accupunture treatments and doing some natural stuff.
I have most of the co-infections and was diagnosed with Lyme 3 years ago. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalsia in 3rd grade.
So anything that has helped you guys deal with the pain? My legs have been KILLING me. Normally it's mainly my neck/shoulder/back..
Please let me know.

Nettles is an herb that helps me a lot with joint pain.
Muscle pain can be helped with magnesium supplementation. Many with Fibro find magnesium helpful.
Nerve pain - the only thing that helped when I had RSD real bad was Benadryl...but the Nettles might have helped that too since they act as an antihistamine too...

Make sure you 're getting enough Vitamin C and other antioxidants...seems to be necessary for pain control for some reason...
