My Lyme symptoms hit hard in January, but I didn't have any real pain to speak of. I was a runner and hiker. Over the past year, I developed a little pinch in my hip, but I could function normally, as far as walking was concerned. As time progressed, and after I started my Lyme treatment (mid March), my hip started causing some trouble. Some times, my stride was limited, I walk with a limp to relieve some pain or I could barely walk from room to room. Other days/hours, I have little to no pain. The past few weeks, it's been acting up more often. Through this time, I've been taking Amoxicillin, Rifampin, Lumbrokinase, Banderol and Samento.
My PCP (went for my annual physical) said it was arthritis. I'm pretty sure it's Lyme arthritis since it came on stronger as I was seeking a lyme diagnosis and after I started treatment.
My question...Could some of you share your successes and/or failures regarding Lyme arthritis? I'm very hopeful this pain will reduce and I will be able to return to my regular activities.
