Hi Everyone: I am just wanting to see if anyone else out there has gotten bad neck/shoulder/trap muscle pain with bart treatment.

I was put on levaquin about 6 weeks ago and boy was this kicked up... I thought my foot pain was bad until this reared its head.

I did find a pillow that has helped immensely- foam pillow that cradles your head. Anyone that wants to know more- pm me.

Thanks-

I am still struggling with severe neck pain.. It was getting okay until a week ago. Now it feels like I pulled a muscle in my neck and radiates down my right arm. Not sure what is up with that, but I am taking my herbs and trying to ease the pain a bit. Going for accupuncture next.

I will have to look into getting a foam pillow when I get back to BC.

My worst lingering symptom is stiff neck, upper back, trapezius pain. Like a pulled muscle. Not from Bart though.

After 8 months of ABX and counting, it finally got better....and I went for accupuncture (two treatments so far) to get over the hump. It really helped. I was pain free for a lovely few weeks.

But just this morning when I woke up, the pain had returned full force. So depressing !!! Maybe I just slept wrong and it will ease up as the day goes on.

Terrible symptom to say the least. It's like the buggers have found a home in my neck and trap muscles!!

My neck pain gets really bad at times. I thought it was related to the lyme but I am being treated for bart too. Who knows.

I have one of those neck pillows that you heat up in the microwave. I use it quite often. Seems to help. I also feel better after an adjustment from my chiro.

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.

Thank you everyone for your feedback. The memory foam pillow has helped so much... I think of the day when we won't be dealing with this anymore... thanks again!

I have this symptom as well. Been ongoing left trap pain for 7+ months despite lyme treatments.

I have been to LLMD, chiropractor, orthopaedist, Physical therapist, massage, etc to no avail.

Just got small amount of botox injected into the muscle last week to see if it will help relax it.

Not sure if its from lyme, bart, babs or ???

So frustrating- I am with ya!

I will look into the pillow...
