Hi Marie, the list of possible symptoms from Lyme disease and associated coinfections is almost too long to list. all forms of peripheral neuropathies are possible - this can be shooting, stabbing, itching, burning, throbbing, pins and needles or numbness. This may exist in one place for some weeks - even to the extent of the complete loss of use of a limb due to inflammation of the nerve roots as it comes out of the spine and associated with severe pain in that limb (called radiculitis ) my partner had this. or it may be much milder - just brief shooting, tingling or burning sensations or partial numbness.
typically with lyme these symptoms come and go - or appear to move around - in one part of the body one day or week and then a few days later somewhere else - or a different pain somewhere else.
many forms of headache are also common with Lyme and most of the co-infections. they are however non-specific and as a result not much help in finding a diagnosis.
do you have a confirmed test result or diagnosis ?
