My husband was hospitalized over the summer and told he had stage 3 disseminated lyme disease, still waiting on bloodwork from LLMD. He did a month of doxycycline & was feeling great, went back to work for a week and almost over night was right back where he started. He's pulsing antibiotics and was told he likely has Babesiosis. He has had joint pains all along but now his hip is locking up causing him to fall over. He takes fish oils, and CBD oil plus going to PT twice a week already. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows what else could help him?

Hi lil731 - welcome

I haven't had hip pain that caused me to fall...that must be horrible !

I think continued treatment is what will help him. In the meantime, the PT is a good idea.

Is your husband on a good detox regimen? He should be doing multiple deotox methods daily.

When we treat and the bacteria dies off - it floods our body with endotoxins...which causes inflammation and increase of old symptoms plus new ones.

Effective detoxing will help flush these out of his system.

I agree w/ Girlie.

Hip joint pain was one of my primary Lyme sx and I had all sorts of problems sitting, walking, lying down. Sometimes the hip would lock up, and when I could walk I would walk with my hips at an angle because it hurt less. Weird, wild stuff.

I think he'll probably do well if he continues the abx regimen for awhile longer. My Lyme-knowledgeable neuro suggested that most neuro sx are from inflammation so he might also try anti-inflammatories like japanese knotweed and turmeric. And as Girlie mentioned - detoxing is key. Also, be sure to protect his gut health.

I had terrible muscle and large joint pain. Was athletic- in shape but that didnt matter. Standing more than 5 min was painful. Couldn't ride a bike without hip pain, now 25 miles is possible, after abx and tons of muscle work.

Killing the critters works, but it takes time. For quick relief, manual pressured circulation will help. Thats basically forced blood flow and muscle tissue detox from various form of muscle work/deep massage foam fitness rolling ect. Its real physical science with real results while you wait for the critter #'s to drop.

Thank you guys! He is taking probiotics & eating clean but we will have to look more into detoxing! It took almost 7mo to get a diagnosis, & we kept telling each other it would be easier once we knew what was wrong...it's so hard to find current information & theres so many different aspects of this disease we had no idea!
