hi everyone.....for the past 6months I have had body aches from head to toe, and also my joints have started to hurt especially in my fingers and elbow area. I also have lower back tenderness (kidney pain). I also have hypothyroidism,I recently had a baby and,I actually found a tick on my scalp in july of 05. I was not tested for lyme but the tic was and the result was negative. If anyone has some ideas on what this could possibly be I would love to hear from you. I started to notice all these symptoms about 3- 5 weeks after my baby was born. I will be going to my doctor this week for a blood test.
