I've been seeing an LLMD in the North Texas area for a time, but they are retiring so I'm in search of another battle-tested LLMD.

Diagnosis:
DNAConnexions Test
- Babesia
- Bartonella
- Lyme
- Ehrlicia

Requirements:
- Open to traveling if I need
- Would like someone with a proven track record
- Looking for the best of the best since I'll likely have to travel

At this point I've tried an extended course of antibiotics and am now on an herbal protocol targeted at the lyme persisters in biofilm. I'm most interested in someone who can help me sustain my forward momentum.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Lyment DallasTXLyme

You can request a LLMD through ILADS but you have to register with their website;

https://www.ilads.org/patient-care/provider-search/

You can also request LLMD'S through Global Lyme Alliance here;

https://globallymealliance.org/education-awareness/find-medical-professional/

You can join your area's Lyme support groups for first-hand experiences with LLMD'S in your area, here;

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/txlyme/info

Hopefully other members of Lymenet will respond so be sure to check back. Good luck on your healing journey.

I will send you a private message.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for MO.

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

LLMDs are far and few between, unfortunately. 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 calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list (call every day if you have too!). Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

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

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

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info):
http://whatislyme.com/lyme-in-texas/

www.txlda.org

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

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

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. View "Under Our Skin" and "Under Our Skin2: Emergence" DVDs. Check your local library or buy them used online.
