After 10 years of suffering, I was finally diagnosed with Lyme's approximately 18 months ago and was treated with oral and IV antibiotics for 5 months . I am feeling symptoms again, headache, joint pain, exhaustion and dental problems. Is it possible this is still related to the Lyme?

This may be related to Lyme. So your doctor need to get the blood work to confirm it. This may be other autoimmune disease. Investigations will pin point it and accordingly the treatment is instituted.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
