Lyme induced fibro - initial exposure 2005...starting feeling ill around 2009 and worsened year by year until had to quit full time job due to confusion, extreme debilitating fatigue, lack of clarity, focus (fibro fog), and tried part time work and was let go do to the same issues. Comorbidities include osteo arthritis - hands, knees, feet, neck, and back...etc. Trocanteric bursitis, sciatica, eye pain headache, TMJ, trigemenial neuralgia, plantar fascitis, popliteal cyst behind right knee, so have severe chronic pain and difficulty walking. I loose my balance and fall sideways to the left contantly. The pain is severe and constant. On tramadol...for years...doesn't help - just does get me to be able to get up but not ever pain free. I can't take any NSAIDS due to having had gastric bypass surgery in the past (2004).
