Hello everyone!

Have been suffering with Lyme the last few months.

I have two questions I would love some insight on.

Since being on Doxycycline I have felt significantly better.

The last two weeks I stopped the Doxy to get a yeast issue under control.

I had stopped it previously once before as well.

My question: When I stop the doxy I get a bizarre almost cyst / boil like growth in my left armpit. I know it is Lyme related. I am just curious as to why. It doesn’t bother me but it feels alarming to touch. The first time I dealt with this throughout my Lyme journey I went to a dermatologist who was not concerned. Then once I was back on Doxy it disappeared. What may this mean? Where is the connection?

Also, my second question is tremors. Ever since getting Lyme I have had slight hand tremors. They can be alarming because I am only 25 years old. When I lift my hand there is a shake. Nothing extreme just wondering as well how this ties into Lyme.

I appreciate all feedback and hope this can help someone else as well!

Happy, healthy and safe holidays to all!

bellabee the under armpit could be a lymph node. When we have infections those can enlarge.

as for the tremors those can be a part of lyme also.

There are many varied and unusual symptoms that can be lyme. They make no sense sometimes too.

There is a manual lymph massage you can do to help your lymph system drainage. Here is a video but I don't recommend doing the 50 she says to do. Start with 20 and see how you do, then work up to 50.

Here is a good article of nerve involvement with lyme. The one that drove me crazy was the bugs on me. I was constantly slapping myself because I thought there was a bug on me. Crazy I tell you!

It is possible that your lymph node is swollen...part of the infection.

Yes, tremors are a symptom of lyme. Lyme and/or co-infections affect our nervous system.
I had tremors for many months. My left hand was worse than my right hand..
Since treatment they have subsided.

I had the armpit cyst thing too. Can't remember now if it was before or after I knew I had something very wrong with me. Anyway, I had more than one cyst and they appeared on both armpits but not all at the same time. Both the nurse at work and my PCP were stumped. They were concerned it could have been staph, but there was no evidence it was. They did tell me not to shave or use deodorant until it all went away, so I didn't. As well as I remember it took a couple of weeks to clear up. I did nothing to treat it. Never had that particular symptom again. There's endless weirdness with Lyme.
