Burning spine pain that started in my low back was my first symptom. I was told over and over lyme doesn't cause back pain but for me I think its the nerves in my spine are inflamed from an infection. I imagine either infection could cause this but I am also interested in what infections others think it could be.

I get lower back pain when my Interstitial Cystitis is acting up. This is where the organs in my pelvic area become swollen and sore (bladder, ovaries). I think this is a symptom of one of these, but couldn't tell you which as I'm not that far along in the process. Just thought I would mention it.

--------------------
IgM: [18++,31+++,34++,41++,83-93+] [39 IND]
IgG: [41 IND]
Positive according to IGeneX. Negative according to CDC. Negative for co-infections.
Currently treating for Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia

I have terrible back pain at present, so bad I can hardly walk. It started after increasing my A-L complex dose and adding in Takuna. My LLMD thinks it is a big herx in my back.On previous examinations she noticed I was sore in my lower back area when she pressed down and commented I probably had a lot of infection in the joints there.

miapiaface, I don't know why someone would say lyme doesn't cause back pain. Lyme loves joints, and where are there more joints than in your spine? Sometimes hip/pelvic pain can be felt as lower back pain, as well, and since the hips are considered a "large joint", they are the perfect place for Bb to hang out.

Just my two cents =)

I get bad back and spine too. I think it is related to lyme for me.

I recently read an article about lyme and back pain and how it related to SI joint problems. I'll see if I can find it.

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.
