Hi all!

So I have been on doxy now for about 2 weeks and just today it feels as if my body is in constant motion, but nothing is moving. does that make sense? Almost like I am moving my muscles, but I am not....constant motion!

weird and scary, anybody have this????

I have involuntary muscle contractions in my upper arm which casues elbow to hurt (left side more than right). They are very very minimal when I wake up in the morning, but increase as the day goes on. They are worse in the pm. Very annoying. My upper neck down to my mid back will feel like soemthing is crawing under my skin. It feels like someone turned on the electrical stimulation on low. Weird. Any one have any ideas of what to ask the doctor?Unsure

There are a lot of us that get this. There are a few "versions" of it. Tingling, vibrations, muscle twitching, something that feels itchy...it goes on, but it is all neuro stuff. Magnesium and b12 shots are the two things that help the best with this stuff it seems (at least that is what I've found so far). I think I notice it more when I'm herxing, even a light herx, but I'm not 100% on that part. Just make sure you tell your dr what is going on, they may have other ideas for you...best of luck!

I feel vibrations all the time - weird! Not crawling - actual vibrations. And another thing - when I was outside this summer with my well guy trying to repair it, I stepped on the ground near the well and felt electricity run through my body. My husband and the well guy stepped there also, but they felt nothing. I have read that you are more susceptible to feeling electrical currents when you have lyme...... I'm guessing it's true.
