Oh awful !! You might want to monitor your intake of oxalates in your diet.

They can definitely cause shoulder problems and other joint pain.

Marie,

I struggled quite a lot with right shoulder pain but I do not think it had anything to do with lyme? Do you lift or do any sort of work out?

No-Rheum thinks its inflammation. Started Celebrex. Now on gabapentin also w/ neur. Taking turmeric and fish oil which didn't help. Celebrex helped with shoulder a little. Gabapentin helped some with sick feeling. Still have burning, numbness, prickling on skin with other symptoms.

I see. I have been fasting for over a year now and my inflammation level has decreased quite a lot. On top of that I am feeling great. :-)

Stay safe out there :-)

may be radiculitis (inflammation of the radial nerves that exit the spinal column and feed the shoulder and arm)
pain ( often severe) limited movement, loss of strength, numbness tingling, etc - especially if the pain seems to radiate down the arm

It's a classic sign of Lyme that was documented as associated with tick bites long before the cause ( lyme ) was ever identified.
typically arises as part of the initial phase of infection - but as with many Lyme symptoms can come and go during the chronic phase also

Bannwarths syndrome

see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lymphocytic_meningoradiculitis#:~:text=Lymphocytic%20meningoradiculitis%2C%20also%20known%20as,responsible%20for%20causing%20Lyme%20disease.

typically it will resolve in time - anti-inflammatory herbs or ABX may help

Not better. PT doesn't seem to help. Other symptoms much worse.

Marie,

Have you had a MRI?

2 years ago I tore my rotator cuff—totally unrelated to Lyme.

Pain went all the way down to my elbow.

I tried PT before the MRI but the pain got worse.

Finally had surgery. Shoulder is better but still acts up if I overdo.
