I went to my Doctor a week latetor and she tested me for lyme and said it was neg. Soon after I had a stiff neck for about 3 week went chrioprator. A month i had dull pain in my right inner groin and pain when i lifted my right leg and thigh. She took xrays of right hip said i must have a sprain. Then i started have abomainal pain and neausa consatpation and then dirria. Then my baby finger half of my ring finger and side of hand got numb. They it was a pinched alnua nerve.This contiune for 3 months. She pricribed ibprofen 800mg 3 times a day.My leg  and my digestive system got worst. I change doctors They sent me to thepry for my leg and took a hip xray and it show arthisis in my hip. I went to othopedic Doctor 1 month later  he said i need a hip replacement but i am 340lb so he said i would need to lose weight.They did a colonoapy and endoscope and said my stomach was mildly irrated.I take 40mg of prilaset 2 time a day now and fibacom .

They say that is my problem. But i contenuly keep getting worst. and all this stared happen 10 months ago. I don't know what to do. I am 55 years old and lost my job because of all this.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If the test for Lyme’s disease was done just once, after 7-9 days, then this test should be repeated. The time from when the tick bites to the time when one has symptoms may vary from a week to few months. The neurological symptoms you have could be due to compression of spinal nerves, Lyme’s disease or due to peripheral neuropathies as in diabetes and hypothyroidism. Hence it is important to run tests to identify what the problem is.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
