I have been in terrible pain this week. There are a few things that have changed, I stopped taking my meds trying to ration them since my insurance ran out. Also I've been eating Christmas cookies, AND it's been super super cold. We got over a foot of snow yesterday. Does the weather effect us Lymies tremendously? This will be my first winter with Lyme and if the cold makes me feel this bad, I seriously think I'll move down South.

Last night I couldn't take the pain, it was making me sick to my stomach it was so bad, so I did a detox bath and took a pain pill. I have not taken pain pills since having lyme because they haven't worked. I was desperate. I took a darvacet (sp?) it did nothing!!! Why doesn't anything take my pain away? or at least lessen it? The only thing that gives me a little relief is Emu Oil.

My mom, sister, and neice are coming in from Florida for the week and I want to be able to function!! I had to call my brother earlier this week because I got stuck standing up. Couldn't walk, couldn't sit. Baby was in the crib crying.... was a nightmare. After 4 adjustments from the chiropractor I got better, but now I have new pain in my shoulder blade area.

My first winter with these problems was HORRIBLE! The extreme cold (midwest winter) caused me severe pain. I wasn't on any pain meds because nothing over the counter even touched it and I wasn't given any prescriptions at that time. I am sooooo thankful it has never been that bad since! Hope the same holds true for you :)

There is a doctor (GP) in West Chester PA that charges people less if they have no insurance. You could get some Tramadol --much better than Darvocet.

I think the stress of wanting so much to be able to function and do things for your family might also be part of it? I hope they can understand what you are going through and that you maybe allow them to take care of you a little bit while they are here. I'm right there with you about this cold though! about ready to follow my mom to NC!

I live in the south and am still in very bad pain. I think the winters, for me, actually make me feel a tiny bit better. We don't get much of it here though.

Hi Jenn,
So sorry you are going through this..   I'm in New York and my area got 2 feet of snow, pretty but not fun!  I don't feel affected by the cold at all but perhaps I am used to this weather since I have lived all most of my life. 
Perhaps try raising your core body temperature by doing the mustard/cayenne pepper foot detox baths?  
You may be going through some withdrawals since you needed to cut down on your meds.. 
Hope you feel better,
