Is it the inflammation caused by the bacterial infection?  I used to walk and go to aerobics which I have been unable to do.  Is it a good idea to do light exercising such as 10 minutes on treadmill or muscle strengthening such as squats while under treatment or do you think it will just make them worse.  I have head pilates and yoga but I've not got the energy for that much.

I think it is best to do as much as you can. You will know when it is too much. Walking is always good and loosens up my joints a little. I plan on starting Pilates again when the situation with my hip and tendons eases up.

Hi springsjean,
 
When my joints hurt I had no idea at the time what caused it.   When I learned about detoxing my joint pains went away.   I then started to do "light" exercising such as yoga and stretching.   Slowly I built myself up as I became better and was able to do aerobics (I still continue to exercise), something I never did before I became infected! 
 
My knees were inflammed and who knows what else?  Back then, everything hurt.  I was told by a doctor way back that I would have permanent knee damage but he was sooooooo wrong!  My knee's are fine today.   
 
I wouldn't overdue it, but slowly built up to it. 
 
Are you are any type of detox regime such as detox baths, foot baths, dry skin brushing, etc.?   I believe that causes inflammation and joint pains. 
 
Hope this helps and that you feel better,
Denise

Great to hear. Thanks for encouragement. At the moment my knees, elbows, wrists and ankles ache off and on, somedays worse than others but knees feel tight all the time such as squating down, coming down stairs, etc. I really believe I too can beat this as I haven't gotten much worse in 3 years and still make it into work everyday and haven't so much as had a cold. Actually anxiety and fatigue are some of my worst symptoms but have several other bizarre symptoms. So you think the detox things are a good idea. A little confused on your last sentence. Did you go somewhere for detoxes or do at home yourself? Thanks again.

I have been having extreme joint pain in my arm and started seeing a physical therapist which has really helped me. He gave me exercises for mobility of the arm using a pully system. My arm is getting stronger. So I would suggest not doing anything that causes pain but to stretch and move as much as you can.

Hi again,
 
I think detoxing is a must for everyone, whether sick or healthy (but that's another story).
 
Yes, I detox at home.   What detoxing does is rid one's body of toxins which are a result of die-offs from bacteria as well as other factors.   Toxins cause joint pain and other problems including brain fog, etc.
 
Anyway, I wrote this post a while back under the Sticky Thread called "The Basics - Newbies, check this out!" and if you scroll down to the center of the page, you can read detoxing instructions.  I should update it as it's important to shower after a detox bath.
 
 
Hope this helps,
Denise

I think exercising is a good idea if you can tolerate it but I wouldn't attempt doing squats. Before I got real sick, I was still able to exercise and decided to do some squats to strengthen my knees. That was the worst thing I could have done having Lyme Disease. My muscles hurt, burned and ached really bad for 3 months. I'll never forget that feeling. I couldn't even stretch my legs without it hurting. It was horrible.

I think yoga and walking, starting off slow of course, is the way to go.
2003 symptoms started with very intense panic attacks and anxiety. Also had sound and smell sensitivities. Was in and out of the hospital from 2003-2005. Diagnosed with panic disorder.
2007 found an LLMD and was diagnosed with Lyme. Didn't start treatment.
2008 symptoms came back with a vengence. Muscle pain, joint pain, floaters, stiff neck, rib pain, slow thinking, brain fog, etc...
2009 went back to see LLMD. Diagnosed again with Lyme plus co-infections....Babesia and Bartonella.
Illnesses:-Chronic Lyme Disease,Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Ulcers, Hypoglycemia
Medications:-Biaxin 250mg to start (starting slow and working my way up, Mepron(babesia), Ultram(muscle/joint pain), Thyro Complex 60mg(Thyroid), Probiotics ,Caproyl(intestinal candidas),Psyllium Powder(intestinal cleansing support),Bentonite Magma(absorbent aid for intestinal detoxification)
-Plus a ton of other supplements
