    Was wondering if Lyme can cause pain that seems to be on the surface of the skin. What I get is areas that are different all the time but that go through these episodes of burning pain that comes and goes...kind of like a contraction but on the skin?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated....hopeful4 do you know anything about this?

    From what I've been reading, lyme can cause all sorts of neuropathic pain and burning sensations. I'm pretty darn sure I have it -- going to an openminded doc on Friday -- all the LLMDs here have closed their practices to new patients and won't even take more on the waiting list. But this guy is young (he's my hubby's doc) and willing to listen to me and read what I bring him.
