Hello, I live in Herndon, VA and I am dealing with a neurological problem called spasmodic dysphonia, which is a kind of dystonia. My case of Lyme got activated after I gave birth in July, 2017 and the first symptom was Subacute Thyroiditis. I'm looking for an LLMD who has experience treating dystonia caused by Lyme. I would also like to find an LLMD who prescribes IV antibiotics in case I need that for the neurological problem. I have been having Lyme symptoms for the past 16 months.

I don't know if the Lyme-literate physicians in different states whose names and info I sent you offer the treatment you are looking for, but you could inquire when you call their offices.
Fyi - my young-adult son had Myoclonus (involuntary muscle twitching and spasms) which disappeared with treatment for Lyme and co-infections.
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.
