I usually have this problem with my head where my neck muscles tense up and my head starts moving from side to side on it's on.

Now I am noticing it in my shoulders and arms. Where my arm would flex on their own and tense up, and after that my arm gets so weak, i feel like I am about to lose control and not be able to move it.

Does this happen to you? And is it lyme disease?

I been on iv antibiotics for a month and half

I am taking vitamin d3, mag , enzymes, probiotics, fish oil, liver care, b12 shots, and every now and then i take multivitam

Hi luvema

Yes, this happens sometimes with my core, rib, back muscles or the muscles in my left arm.

The core muscle spasms have never lasted more than 2 hours but the arm thing sometimes goes all night.

I never had this until I started Mino.

Magnesium doesn't make it better or worse for me.
(At least not initially).

It's like Dr. Ho's, but without the machine.
My muscles are very fatigued after this episodes.

Thanks for the response,

Do you know what could be causing it?

I have no idea what causes it.

I was on doxy before, and then mino. I think mino more readily enters the csf, so I assumed the muscle-seizure-like episodes were from that. I only had it twice really bad, both in early days of mino.

How often do your muscles do this?

Ema, have you been increasing your dose of systemic enzymes like we talked about in the chat room?

You said you were taking one tablet daily, and that's not going to do much to reduce inflammation that's causing the head pressure.
