My latest symptom is my knee which is achy and at times, feels as if on fire.  It's also swollen in one area in the front now and then.  I have been icing it and now feels like bruise on top, sore to touch.  I don't go back to dr. for a month.  Anyone else had this?  I don't think it's a herx cause it's not going away after two weeks.  Any suggestions?  idea

I have the knee thing, It was totally gone when i took my vacation recently and went in the ocean.
the salt u know!
So I am going to try the epsom salt baths also adding the hydrogen peroxide to the water helps eliminate the toxins building up in these areas.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

my ankle did the same thing, all of a sudden at night blew up and was in agony. couldn't move it, touch it. it was red and felt warm, not itchy though. my dad has had gout for the last 20 yrs, thinks its hereditary, so it could have been that for me, everything seemed to fit. don;t know your situation, but the knee is a popular place to get it. I think its what I got but I won't know for sure till I see the doc, but its almost gone now.

Hope this helps!

Maybe try soaking in Epsom salt and see what happens.

Nettles herb is also good for joint pain and inflammation from Lyme. Nettles also help to pull uric acid out of the joints, thus is helpful for gout. Don't use the alcohol-based tincture for gout; the alcohol isn't good for gout.
