Until others come along who know the MN lyme docs, you can contact all the support groups near you for doctor recommendations.

See Support Groups on the left side of the page. Contact ones in neighboring states also.

Personal recommendations are the best. Also, read and study the Burrascano Guidelines found here:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

They will teach you about these diseases and tell you what good lyme treatment looks like.

(Also, there is no "s" at the end of lyme.)

Hi Cynthia,

TF’s advice is excellent, and I’m also sending you a pm with leads to follow up on.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for MN.

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.

Here is a link for them:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

Unfortunately, LLMDs are far and few between. You need to go where they are. I don't know of any in or near International Falls.

Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance":

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0

When you call for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in earlier by doing this.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MinnesotaLyme/info

Maybe they can help. They would know better about MN.

Some more resources for you:
http://whatislyme.com/lyme-in-minnesota/

http://mnlyme.com

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Minnesota/

Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and his new one, "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information.

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check the local library or buy it used on Amazon.

Btw - I know you are new to Lymenet, but you should not use your real name, because this is a public forum with all sorts of people on it. Read this link about it:
