I have been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain which happened one week ago. Last night my good shoulder began to ache and I am concerned. Over compensation might explain it but truly I have mostly sat around doing nothing as a way of healing the left shoulder.

In the past month I have had 4 body pathway sessions wherein a skilled practitioner does light body work to open up pathways. My neck has been critical since a tick bite in 2013 and for the first time now, my neck has no pain.

Is it possible I have moved the lyme from neck to shoulders and this is not actually a sprain?

If unblocking some stuff allowed your neck to start functioning in a way so the pain has been alleviated, pain in the shoulders is an easy possibility. Even the slightest changes can cause connecting parts of the body to respond with pain as they readjust.

Shoulders can be funny, if the pain continues you might want to get some type of physio evaluation. The muscles can get unbalanced easily causing problems. There are simple exercises that can prevent postural problems and degeneration before things get too bad.

Thanks gz. I am becoming convinced this is what I'm dealing with.

My Lyme escalated to rheumatoid arthritis, a severe form of it, in 2006, but by treating Lyme I went into remission and have been there ever since excepting the next issue that began in 2013 with the last tick bite.

That has plagued me ever since but has remained in the neck until now. I too think it is passing through and is triggering rheumatoid arthritis.

I am going to focus on diet and anti-inflammatories like turmeric, msm, iodine, etc. Diet restrictions to see if I can calm the immune response.

I am a bio feedback practitioner and my machine is registering Lyme in nearly every scan including the shoulder scan.

(breaking up the post for easier reading for many here)

Absolutely (lyme loves sprains). It may not even be a sprain at all too. You could have just slept on it wrong. Lyme will move there then too. You might check out a chiro who uses the activator method.

As far as a solution .. consider acupuncture.

I've been dealing with a nerve impingement in my shoulder for years. It finally got really bad and I got an MRI last summer.

Off to physical therapy.... did that since July .. still going.

Started acupuncture 4 weeks ago and on the 4th visit .. BINGO!! Big relief of the muscle spasm in my arm and shoulder.

I now see the light at the end of the tunnel!
