This all started back in April. The back of my head by the neck appeared swollen and hurt. The doctor said it was likely muscle related as I was working a very physical labor job at the time. I followed his suggestions and nothing worked. I've since moved out of state and have a different doctor. I noticed two small bumps behind my ear a few months ago and the swelling behind my head has increased. I was put on doxycycline as a precaution as I now work outside. After the treatment the swelling in back of my head went down and I felt great. The bumps behind my ear still there. I went to Alaska and for the first two days on the trip the bump behind my ear oozed clear smelly liquid for two days. The swelling in back of my head has gotten worse. In the fact it looks bruised and red. I was wondering if Lyme disease can do all this? Or some other infection? I also get one minute excruciating headaches whenever I try and do any type of bending, lifting, or getting out of bed in the morning. The headaches are random and happen variously throughout the day. Is all this related?
