Alright, this is a little personal but if it helps my healing, so be it. I saw that on tiredoflyme it mentioned ********** could make lyme worse. I am doing a mix between anti-inflammatory medication and cowden/buhner herbs at the moment. Got the anti-inflammatory from my rheumatologist, who also ran a 2nd lyme test (the inaccurate kind, but better than nothing.) For the past 2 weeks, I have had INSANE neck, back, and shoulder pain with insane amounts of inflammation. Honestly, nothing gives it much relief. Epsom salt baths only help for a short time, Anti-inflammatory meds barely help and quickly subside, Alternating hot/cold showers help for a bit but not much, etc. To be fair, I sit at the computer most of the time on most days and I am sure posture has at least a bit to do with it. Got 10 x-rays done to see if any damage occured,
Dr. thinks it is "bamboo spine" or Ankylosing spondylitis. Given it only started recently, I have bad air hunger, random numbness and tingling, swollen salivary glands, extreme violent mood changes, cold hands, and many other symptoms I doubt that is all, but I am open for suggestions. Anyway, when I ********* or have sex with my partner, after ejaculating my lower back muscles feel so much worse, my neck hurts more, I feel super light headed, and just generally like crap. Does this mean I am extremely low on a vitamin or mineral or something? Usually it gives me a sense of euphoria and can be good for stress relief, but lately I completely avoid it or I feel a lot worse. Any idea what is happening?
