Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know getting medical info from the internet is frown upon, but I wanted to toss this out there to see if it can shed some light on my problems.
So, I got joint and muscle pain like arthritis and MS, but I test negative for both. The pain is weather related and I test off the charts for inflammation even under medication.
I ache more on a day before a big storm vs doing physical labor. These say high pain days I have terrible BO and my waste products stink as well. Ha, ha, ha. This has to mean something. Urine is the same color as well as my crap, they just stink.
Protein drinks help with the pain, salty foods,NSAIDS, steroids and pain killers.
Ive seen arthritis doctors and first thing they look for is swollen finger joints. None here. Blood test come back negative. Infact they can not be any further negative making me suspect its a false negative.
Further movement makes the pain worse, sitting still helps. Pain just gets worse with movement.
Other blood test come back normal, liver, cholesterol, sodium, blood sugar, red cells, white cells, etc, etc, etc.
It was suspected I may have another muscular disease but its a grand to test if I have it and insurance wont cover it. If I test positive the only solution was physical therapy.
I'm in a similar boat. I have pain in every joint and muscle. I have extreme exhaustion, severe brain fog and I'm losing muscle. A neurologist sent me to a fibromyalgia doc. The fibro doc didn't think it was fibro but suspected MS. Brain scans have found no sign of MS. Sleep study diagnosis was Narcolepsy with cataplexy. But that isn't progressive and not pain causing, but I'm steadily getting weaker and hurting more. 15 years ago I did a full body off frame restoration on a car. Now my DRL mod on this Versa is still in the package. All I have to do is run an ignition +12V to the module. This heat takes what little strength I have in a few minutes. I've had my heart checked with echo and stress test and they say it's fine.
What are the symptoms of Lyme disease?
Early signs and symptoms include fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and swollen lymph nodes -- all common in the flu. In up to 80% of Lyme infections, a rash is one of the first symptoms, Aucott says.
Without treatment, symptoms can progress. They might include:
Severe headache or neck stiffness
Rashes on other areas of the body
Arthritis with severe joint pain and swelling, particularly in the knees
Loss of muscle tone or “drooping” on one or both sides of the face.
Heart palpitation or an irregular heartbeat
Inflammation of the brain and spinal cord
Shooting pains, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet
