I have tested positive for Lyme, Bartonell and Babesia.  I had them for at least 10 months before I got properly diagnosed.  I have been on oral abx for 6 months and rocephin IV for 3 months.  Recently I have developed spinal pain.  I don't see why my symptoms should be worsening after 9 months of treatment to a point worse then even before I started abx.  I don't think it is a herx because it has been ever day for 2 months. 
I am taking Malarone and IV Rocephin, (occasional minocycline) .   Does anyone have any thoughts why I should develop spinal pain after some many months of treatment?  All other symptoms are getting better, and this one symptom starts getting progressively worse, it is very strange.  I can't figure out why it should be happening.

Not sure.  My lower lumbar spine is really bothering me.  I can not walk for more than 30 minutes without becoming stiff and it is very painful.  I saw a spine doctor about this and had an MRI.  I was told that I have degenerative arthritis in the L4 and L5 region.  Caused by Lyme, I do not know, but I will definitely be discussing this with LLMD on June 2.
