Lyme coupled with repetitive motion will most likely result in stiffness of the soft tissues. If you've had repetitive motion from work or athletics, you've experienced this.

Lyme and the body chemistry changes that come with it (insomnia, stress, cortisol, liver, thyroid) makes the tissue straining much more likely to happen. All of that stuff needs to work properly for tissue regeneration, lyme can wreck havoc on all of that. I've had it across my whole body from overworking my body in a demanding endurance/contact sport with lyme for many years, and I'm roughly 80% better today. After lyme tratement, I'm now successfully fixing injured tissue from 15-20 years ago using similar methods in this link, without the help of the medical system since they are clueless in the area of soft tissue.

I just ran across this site, which pretty much says all the stuff I've been preaching about soft tissue for the last four years. this person learned this on her own studying, not a Dr as Drs are useless in this topic. She did not have lyme but must have had some other issue which led to this. Mentions tools for this. I use a thera cane, four different diameter med-hard sports balls (golf ball is smallest), and the curved edge of the bathroom counter-top.

**Many people get better just treating the pathogen, lyme ect, if there was limited tissue damage. More serious or lengthy cases will benefit from the info in the link - many forms of loosening your fascia, muscles, tendons. This is deep pressure release, not you basic wimpy massage.**

No mention of Gau-Sha though. Its been very beneficial to me. I've learned to do this on many areas myself followed by topical DMSO with Arnica Montana gel "chaser".
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again and with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.

Thanks for this very informative post, Astroman.



re: tendonitis. My husband had it from repetitive motion (using a screw driver at work for a good portion of many days) He couldn't even use his right arm to lift anything.

He devised a brace that would allow him to build up the muscles, while not inflaming the tendon.
And it worked. He hasn't had a problem since. He doesn't use a screw driver at work anymore, so it's not aggravating that tendon.

Sounds like he surly has some do-it-your-self skills. Did he use DMSO on that tendon too?

Modern, lighter, lithium cordless drills/drivers and other tools certainly wards off tendonitis.

haha - no DMSO because he hadn't discovered it yet. yes, this was back in the day when you did everything manually....and I don't think those screw drivers existed?
(in the early 90's)

..or his employer was too cheap to buy them.

His employer was cheap!

The weight of ni-cad batteries in "old school" powerful cordless tools made them heavy, which still contributed to repetitive motion issues. The newer lithium batteries are 1/4 weight per power output vs the old ni-cad batteries.

I would get repetitive motion / tendon issues just from my gym sometimes when I had lyme. Had to change my routine a lot.
