I had PICC line inserted on 3/19 and started IV Rocephin on 3/20. This past week I started to experience a pain and achiness in my right leg that I never experienced before. Today I started having a lot of pain in the right side of my neck. It feels sort of like a spasm that is not being helped by pain meds. I've had neck stiffness and pain in my neck all along but not this type of isolated spasm-like pain.
Also still experiencing some discomfort in the arm the PICC was inserted. The entry site is fine and not red or swollen but I feel discomfort coming from inside the entire length of my arm. The nurse who comes to my home says it looks fine and I spoke to the doctor's office today and they also do not seemed concerned but said if it does not go away I should go for a sonogram. Is this normal? How much longer should I give it?
Is all of this considered normal in our "lyme world"? I usually handle symptoms and pain very well but am still a little freaked out at having the PICC in me. lol
