Was just wondering if Lyme affects your joints in any way?
I have been doing research on Lyme online and I now have a better understanding of the disease. It all describes me, I am kind of afraid. I can't afford the test right now, so I guess when I have some extra money, I will be able to order the test. I did see where it does/can cause joint problems.
Yes Kriket many have joint pain. My son's joint pain is gone with lyme treatment.

There is a part of lyme attacking joints that is referred to as lyme arthritus. My daughter had both knees operated on because of this but at the time we could not identify lyme. Just that her knees would go on her. The treatment is the general one for lyme. I do not know of a specific cure just to lyme. I would reccommend water exercise.
Best to you
Reason I was asking is that I am starting to have tremendous pain in my joints. My knees especially. They will go completely out of socket and move to the side of my leg. GROSE!!!! It hurts soooooooo bad when it happens. It feels like my joints are coming out of socket or something. They are always popping in and out and hurt something fierce!!!
