I've been having a wide range of symptoms, 23 years old, 5'7", was 160 lbs 4 months ago, currently 180 lbs.
Back pain started 1 year ago after 2 hrs of sitting. bitten by a tick 8 months ago (no target rash). Now pain starts after 10 min of sitting, shooting pain down butt and legs. Shooting pain down arms. Burning pain over mid thoracic spinal region, tension headache after 1 hour of sitting. Severe morning stiffness of lower back and hips started 5 mo ago, relieved by morning run. Currently pain is relieved by walking and running, popping of back and neck, and light spinal traction. Relief is less than 5 min. I maintain a light diet and run and lift light weights 3-4 times per week, but still gaining weight. NSAIDS have no impact on pain, with exception of acetominophen on headache.
Other symptoms: yellowing of eyes after nsaids (recommended dose), difficulty starting urination, urge to urinate, sharp abdominal pains, sternal chest pain radiating through ribs. Chronic popping of back, neck, hips.
5 months ago, blood work and x-rays were normal after onset of morning stiffness and faster onset of back pain. Lyme disease test has just been done, still waiting on results. Currently on indomecathin without improvement.
