Searching for the right LLMD for me in Central NY.
After doing my own research, I began to suspect I had Lyme (potentially have had for multiple years), and brought my concerns to my PCP. I tested positive, and he put me on a 1-month course of doxycycline earlier this summer. I haven't experienced much improvement, and think it's time to consult with an LLMD.
I've had some positive results with dietary changes and herbal supplements, so I'd like a doctor who takes a holistic approach, and can give me advice regarding the supplements I'm already taking, as well as assess what else I should be doing.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for upstate NY.
You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!
A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.
