Hi, I don't really post often, but I do read many of the threads.
I have a quick question. With lyme, do you ever get arm pains that feel like your entire arm is aching or being squeezed?
I have many other questions, but I'll save those for later!

Hi KaAl,  I have lyme disease and one of my most consistent symptoms is arm pain.  It is usually in both arms but it moves throughout the arm. It usually hurts the same place in each arm.  For example if the pain is in my right forearm it is also in my left forearm and if the pain is in my right bicep it is also in my left bicep.  It feels like someone is squeezing my arms and I also have chills/aches in my arms?  Let me know if this sounds similar to what you have.

Yes, I have a deep ache in my lower arms as if my bone is being crushed. Both arms feel very heavy as if filled with led for two years. I also get this weird sqeezing pain in my entire arm as if it is in a vice.

My arm and legs were painful and heavy until I was on treatment for babesia--then it began to go away--now they are sort of weak rather than painful.

My arms hurt all the time especially the top. I always explain the feeling of being punched in the arm or working out really hard. For me, it kind of feels like I have the flu. I'm not sure if this is what you feel too?
Have a blessed day!

My right arm hurts and I am not sure why. I have had pain because of lyme but I believe this may be side effect of levaquin. Anyway I cannot use it at times. I have to use my other arm to lift it up as the elbow joint is so painful.

Would you please explain the pain in further detail? Does it ever feel like you entire arm, from shoulder to hand, is being squeezed?
