Anyone here have synovial fluid drawn from a swollen joint? If so, where did the fluid get sent for culture? On loratadine one tab per day and a product called Basis for mitochondrial support, co Q 10, turmeric, olive leaf extract, black pepper extract, fish salmon oil for inflammation and having trouble with pain.

Good question. I have swelling on the top of my left elbow. Would love to have some of that fluid pulled and tested.
Had not thought of septic arthritis. Geez. How does one Dx that? Other symptoms?

Has a doctor told you this is septic? "Septic" is a very distinct diagnosis and of the utmost urgency.

Otter, Why do you ask this question? Do you think you're septic? (Septic Lyme arthritis).

I would strongly listen to Keebler's remarks!!

If you're septic and you don't rush to the ER it's not going to be a good ending.

It is a terminology. Arthritis due to an active infection which originates in another part of the body, not the affected joint. Google it.

Thanks for that detail. I was unaware that the term can apply to various situations.

I already did a round with OHSU internal medicine resident. The fact that i treated with Minocycline twice told her that I was cured .when I am in this much pain, I don't have a lot of reserves and just wanted to scratch her eyes out for not listening. I already have an appointment with a naturopath in Beaverton recommended by my previous Doctor Dr, R, who can get me on doxycycline. I am also using stevia a lot but still have knee fibula head pain. I was just wondering if anyone has had Lyme knee and what they did or didn't do about it. My leg hurts to goddammm hel when I move it and can put some weight on it. It came on after a month and a half or so.

I'm sorry it's so painful. I hope the new LL ND works out.

What helps my knee when it's at its worst is:

Soothanol 2X has been amazing for me at times. A couple friends also have found relief from knee pain, etc.


www.northstarnutritionals.com/soothanol-x2-topical-pain-relief.html?pg=P650R1AA&gclid=Cj0KEQiAiNi0BRDaobaq3dKJhrwBEiQAyVThzZ4ezY5mMXYOQ7-beMTuM3IwEN3d_34T2dA2xRuy4e4aAj9a8P8HAQ

NorthStar SOOTHANOL 2X (use with almond oil or some other good carrier oil, cream or lotion to dilute in on the skin)

You can find this - and hundreds of customer reviews at Amazon, too.

TRAUMEEL - with ARNICA (or find Arnica Oil)

Whole Foods or New Seasons would carry this.

A friend of mine has looked into that for myself and finds it's a bit complex as there are many different strains of marijuana that are used, even for the oil.

A m. store on SE Hawthorne Blvd. in PDX seems to have the most information on which particular strain is best with the oil. I don't know the name of it but there can't be too many m. stores on that street in the blocks between 20th and 40th.

As it turns out, it's so very expensive. I can't even afford magnesium anymore so there is just no way I could consider anything of this nature.

You might also be able to contact some marijuana group that works with the medical aspect of it so as to find the best option regarding the exact strain. And, you'd want it to be free of farm chemicals.

I had just saved this for a friend so it comes in handy for your research, too:

Oregon's new list of pesticides OK for marijuana means changes for some growers

Oregon on Monday issued a list of more than 250 pesticides cannabis growers may be able to use on their crops. . . .

It is the green door. But the phone number does not work, and believe me, I am not going anywhere walking. I called a state licensed dispensary on NE Alberta and got the name of a place to get a card, OCCM clinic I need to get on an antibiotic first before all my joints are destroyed. Balm can run from 20 to 50 $. If I am out on Hawthorne, I will look for green door. Completely stove up. Can't even take the trash ot.

Update: MRI's came back and have a nodule. Could be due to infections? Lyme would be my gues and a meniscal tear. Not sure if they are related. Has anyone had a nodule aspirated? How to make sure they test for all disease.
Inflammatory soft tissue nodule at the lateral aspect of the tibial plateau
with extension into the underlying bone. This is favored to be of infectious
etiology. Neoplasm is possible but less likely, although PVNS would be a
consideration. This would be amenable to needle biopsy if clinically warranted.

Small lateral meniscal body tear.

Lateral and patellofemoral compartment cartilage disease.
