I have done a search through this forum and have found threads where people have said that they Lyme bacteria can paralyze the abdominal muscles making them immune to exercise? How long is something like this going to take to resolve!? It's kind of scary. Since treating, my stomach has been crazy bloated the past few days. Since I've been bloated, I've been noticing this numbness in my abs to where I can't flex them. It's kind of scary!
