Hello, I need help for my son!!!  He has had headaches off and on for a month, leg cramps, and for the last 7 days his eyes are very red sensitive to light, they hurt so bad he cant even open them.  They do water some, and front lobe pain.  He has had a ct scan and that was clear.  Eye doctor sad pink eye but he has been on 2 different types of infection meds. and eye drops and eye cream, that should have taken care of pink eye by now.  Can someone please help We have saw 2 doctors and 1 eye doctor and still no relief.
Thank you

Muscle cramps are often caused by dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, or calcium or magnesium deficiency, even in the setting of Lyme Disease. Eye problems - has he been tested for allergies? Allergic conjunctivitis can mimic pink eye, but won't respond to antibiotics. Also could be viral eye infection (my Husband gets those...usually causes styes for him). Yes, this could be Lyme too. A Naturopathic Physician may be able to put all the pieces together better than most regular MD's, and they tend to be more aware of the unusual allergy and infectious presentations that can occur.

Good luck & take care,

Frontal lobe pain with eye issues could also be bartonella.
