Hello, thanks for the query.
Unfortunately you took many medicines and still didn't got relief.
Lyme as you wrote , I think disease has confirmed through blood sample and detection of tick.
Nothing to worry as the drug of choice is doxycyclin. But this medicines should be taken after the advise of doctor.
Most potent pain killers are available in market for arthritis
so please have these but at the advice of some doctor.
Lime juice two times a day for at least 4-5 yrs is one more choice for you as this is a part of medicinal treatment because lime juice contains ascorbic acid
( VITAMIN "C").
Vitamin "C" has the capacity to dissolves urates , oxalates phytates as these things deposit in various joint in this type of disease.
Good luck for speedy recovery. Dr. HET
