Yes too weird !!
I have the rib pain off and on too. Lyme really likes connective tissue and there's lots of it in the ribcage. One day my right underarm will hurt, the next day it will be somewhere else. Sometimes it feels like someone's punched me in the chest. I've never had the hot red skin though. That sounds more like a die off thing - herx. I take lots of detox stuff when that does happen. Chlorella is really good for that.
Caldonia and Traveler - I'm having the boob pain/discomfort as we speak. Sometimes they do feel swollen and I'm not breast feeding. Lyme also really messes with pituitary function which controls all the hormone levels in our body. I'm on a birth control pill daily to help with this.
Simela, did you have active Lyme during your pregnancy? How's the baby doing? I have a 5 year old son and didn't find out I had Lyme til 2 1/2 yrs ago. By the grace of God, he has no problems!! But he still has to be either a carrier or his immune systems been able to keep it in check. Hopefully, he'll never express symptoms.
All the best to everyone
