Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for FL, MD, & DC.
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 so you need to go where they are. At least half of all Lyme patients travel out-of-state for their care. 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 there are any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this. Check the online state Lyme groups at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TennesseeLyme/info https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GeorgiaLyme/info Maybe they can help. Some more resources for you (including Support Groups): http://whatislyme.com/websites-and-support-groups-by-state/ http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Tennessee/ http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Georgia/ 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?". It is an excellent source of information. Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy it used on Amazon. View "Under Our Skin" for free on http://www.veoh.com/m/watch.php?v=v21055812yWtmpgB8 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: http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=011844;p=0 You would have to contact one of the moderators to change your username.
