Any idea if this is lyme or which co infection? I've been on treatment since September and I don't notice any resolution of this symptom...for a short while, rifampin helped me, but then it came back.. very frustrating.. its the worst in the morning when I get up and gets less as the day goes on... what is this? it feels like a rock in the back of my neck

A few weeks after starting Mepron, Zithro and Mino, I noticed the neck stiffness and pain I experienced for many years disappeared. Just started IV Rocephin and it's back along with new symptoms.
