I live in rural VA. Last week I noticed a bullseye rash on my arm. I went to my GP and was given Doxy for suspected/possible Lyme. I am currently on a 3 week regimen.

The only symptoms I noticed different from my usual symptoms (I live with spinal cord injury and quadriplegia) was exhaustion the week before I found the rash. Needed lots of naps and sleeping in.

Having a spinal cord injury and paralysis complicates my situation since I already have many symptoms shared with Lyme (fatigue, chronic pain, neurological issues, fibro, joint/muscle pain, etc.)

My concern is that I can’t be sure if I have recovered from Lyme (if I even have it in the first place) after this doxy treatment is over since I can’t distinguish the symptoms. I have not had any testing done and I would like to find an LLMD in Virginia, preferably Charlottesville.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Welcome to Lyment Dizzie

So very sorry to hear about your health struggles, you are an inspiration to many.

Here is a symptom list for Lyme;

Here is how to treat a recent tick bite;

I commend you for being your own healthcare advocate. You are right in wanting to find a LLMD. You cannot waste any time with this stealth infection. Most LLMD'S will utilize state-of-the-art laboratories that specialize in Vector Borne Infections. When caught in its early stages, Lyme can be effectively elimatated from the body.

You can request a LLMD through Global Lyme Alliance here;

We are here for you to answer any questions you may have.
Healing wishes. I will send you a private message.
