Do you have any of the symptoms listed below??
I’m guessing that most of you do. Well, these are symptoms of Lyme disease!!
The symptoms of fibro were getting worse so I switched physicians. I believe that a steroid injection for SI Joint disease triggered my Lyme (which can hide in tissues for years) infection to go bananas.
I provide this info as food for thought if your fibro seems to be getting worse. Your thoughts??
