I don't have joint pain. Ok maybe occassionally I might get a mild ache but not the severe joint pain that people tend to think of when they think of lyme disease.

I have a lot of muscle aches - arms, legs, hands & feet but joints are pretty good.

Is this unusual? Are there others out there who don't have joint pain but a lot of other stuff?

It is not unusual. Some people have more arthritic Lyme and others neurological Lyme, etc.

I had fevers high low periodicaly two years or so kept getting bit throughout this period no joint pain but had tingling finger tips tip of nose,here and there then somewhere around third year Wham!!! migrating joint pains come and go move to another joint etc.

And everytime I would get a new joint oain it was progressivly worse than the last one.

Until 2001 when i could barely walk, elbow hurt so bad for months.

I don't have joint pain, either. That's why the doctors around my area didn't want to believe that it was Lyme. They think that you need to have the bullseye rash and joint pain and that's the only criteria they go by.

I have the neurological symptoms - buzzing/vibrating sensations, shakiness, and slight tremors.

No pain for me--just incredible atigue--turns out that i was waking up every five minutes at night--from PAIN!

that's right--I have the (this is a quote) "mental capacity to push away the pain during the day." I can't do that at night--'cause my mental capacity is asleep!

For me, joint pain is definitely not at the top of my symptom list. I have much more neurological symptoms and symptoms in other systems of my body. I do get joint pain and arthritic symptoms at times, but it's not a major thing and I definitely don't have the "typical" swollen joints.

Peace and healing,
Annie

Hi Ticked--

Let me tell you nothing about
these diseases is written in stone-

This is one of the reasons it
is hard for doctors to figure out---

Many of the symptoms will change
threw the corse of disease--
Come and go somewhat--

But after awhile it mostly stays--

One of my first and worst symptoms
was joint pain--

A few years later nte nero
symptoms kicked in

You dont what the disease
to progress any farther--

After about a year of good
treatment the joint pain
is mostly gone--

Now my nero are decreasing
dirmatically---
The fog is lifting more
every day --

Let me tell you how dinged
out I was a one point--

I could not remember my
daughters name-and I did
not know how old I was--

Scared the hello out of me--

You can get over this stuff--
Its a Long road- but you
can do it--I have--Jay--

Ticked...

I had joint inflammation/pain briefly. It went away though. I'm neuro as well. Vibrations are #1 for me. Headaches are #2.

Cinder...what part of the country are you in?

I wonder if the symptoms link up to the region/Lyme strain?
