I have several size of a pea hard bumps that are not specifically related to pain in any way.
And I had recently started sprouting multiple period (.) size hard white bumps all over the place. I have some theory that this is either the lyme bugs trying to retreat to a safe place, or my body expelling some toxic substance.
I'm still in the phase of the stabbing pains in the head, after the year long head ache.
Can't believe someone else has this!! I have had "ice-pick" like headaches on the left side of my head for quite awhile now. About a year ago I started developing hard bumps on my forehead (left side) about the size of a pea to grape. They are actually causing a "dent" in my forehead. They are quite large and very hard. I have showed them to regular doc, neuro and Lyme doc. None of them know what is causing this to happen. They said "maybe some kind of deposits....calcium, etc."..... but no one seems to have an answer. They are ugly AND very disturbing....not knowing what they are, that is.

I have one in the center of my forehead at the hair line. I've had it for about as long as I think I've had lyme.
My husband calls it my unicorn bump.
I have another one on my right wrist that has gotten larger with recent abx.
I sure hope all the little spots . . don't turn into pea size bumps or I'll be bumpy all over!
This disease sure makes me wish I had studied science a bit more. Like I'd love to have a microscope and a scapel and take a look at what the hell these things are! And put them in test tubes and so forth.
Well, it's time for bed. I hope my body twitches don't wake me up!

Karen, I know where you are coming from. I would like to do the same.
You guys are describing exactly what I had. I didn't have the knots as big or as severe, and it was very painful. The knots are called subaceous cysts. They are painful, but they do eventually go away. There isn't any treatment for them that will make them magically disappear, however there are things you can do (massage techniques and exercises, but I don't remember exactly what they were.) to make them go away quicker.
Hope this is helpful, Take Care!
