I am a 36 yr old male that is active and recently woke up with terrible pain in my arms ! Both arms had aching that woke me up out of a dead sleep - coupled with leg muscle pain. The pain is as if I didn't work out and hit the gym after a 2 year layoff - stiff, sore to the touch . . . .etc. I also have tenderness in my genitalia ?
I went to the Dr. and he drew blood for all the tick diseases but generally didn't seem concerned - he started me on the Lyme antibiotic and I've take one dose.
I am concerned because I have 2 young kids one under 13 months and the muscle pain has moved from my bi/tri-cep to my forearms making it virtually impossible to tie shoes, hold my son to dress him . . . . . until the Advil kicks in.
I am taking Advil (and the Lyme medicine) but my blood work doesn't come back till Fri. and this is killing me !
