Need LLMD in Columbus OH area - or anywhere in OH.
My son is 16. When he was 9 we were in PA and NJ for vacation. We noticed 2 bullseye marks on his leg and took him to Urgent Care.
He was treated for 10 days with Amoxcillin.
Now 7 years later, we have noticed for the past 4 yrs he is extremely tired no matter how much sleep he gets, exhausted after showers, rowing machine "makes me more tired", has fallen asleep in class 3 times in the last year, tremors in leg, tingling foot "my foot feels like it's falling asleep", gut pain.
Sensory issues. Sensitivity to lights. Anxiety, some depression.
Hopefully someone can help me find him the right doctor for him

Very sorry to hear about your son. We can help you. You need to learn all you can about Lyme Disease and the co-infections that come with it. You also need a LLMD. Start by reading this link which explains why LLMD's don't participate in insurances;
Your son was under-treated and the bull's-eye rash is definitive for Lyme!
Your son needs 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.
Hi, Tricia. I've sent you a private message with a contact's suggestion. I don't recall what her specific credentialing was for lyme, but that she is credentialed. I hope it helps, as she is great, treats various areas, and has a lot of professional and personal experience.
I am a patient of hers by referral of one of my friends (who was referred by one of her friends, who was referred by one of her friends.) There is a reason she has so many referrals as her new patients. E.X.C.E.P.T.I.O.N.A.L.
Is the health care practitioner you mentioned a "Lyme-literate doctor" (=LLMD)? How many years has she been treating Lyme and what percentage of her patients have gotten well?
This is very important to know when finding a good LLMD. It's good to know she has many referrals made to her and is "exceptional".
If she is a LLMD, then Lymenet rules state you cannot write her full and last names, only last name initial as well as state, not town where she is located. This is to protect the doctors who put everything on the line to treat Lyme patients.
To do this click the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.
