Thanks for writing to us.
Polyarthralgia with decreased body movements are seen in fibromyalgia. To rule out Lyme's disease, a physical examination and investigations are needed. Oral pain killers and hot fomentation might help in relieve the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
