LYME....fibromyalgia? Do these things cause leg socket and knee pain? HELP!

Mar 19, 2017 12:53 AM

I have pain in my knee and leg socket on my right hand side only. I feel like an old lady when I walk and it's causing me to limp 2 weeks ago I had a really sore foot and heel on my left foot, it went away after I got a bad cold now this crap is going on. I feel like something is always wrong. Is this a symptom of fibromyalgia? I have a friend with LYME and her and I grew up playing in the bush together does anyone with LYME disease have symptoms like this? Not sure if it's just me being crazy or if there is something actually wrong. Also had a bad headache at temples and behind eyes with light sensitivity.

Both cause excruciating pain. I would bet my last dollar that I have Lyme but previous testing has been negative. I have not used the new test yet because I have not had insurance for over 3 years.Lyme is a spirokete bacteria and is very good at hiding expecially inside your knee joints. That is why so many people get negative test results even when they are positive.

This lower portion was copied off a Lymes Support page-Lymes is a spirokete bacteria, (like SYPHILIS ). YOU CAN FREEZE IT ..you can autoclave it AND YOU WON'T KILL IT.... it HARBORS in the spinal column and in the BRAIN.

Yes it will. Chronic Lyme also will - it can cause Lyme arthritis.
I have both, plus osteoarthritis & fibro.
