It maybe, as I have found out after over thirty years of back, knee hip joint pain, along with other symptoms. It may be Lyme's disease, I am now on antibiotics every day which helps no end, I can usually walk, bend, and squat without even a glimmer of pain, after taking doxycycline since March. All the best in your search, just find a decent doctor, took me 36 years!!!

Hi Pittvip, the only flaw that I can see with your introduction is that your Profile (well done. So many don't bother) does not say which country you are living in. As drug names and medical practices vary so much world wide it is handy to know.

Personally I would go back to your doc and tell them that your still in too much pain and that you are still failing to cope.

As the docs can only play guess when they prescribe some timES they under do it and sometimes over prescribe. Plus our bodies all react slightly differently.

Good luck, Rib
