Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for FL.
I don't know of any LLMDs in AL. 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. 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/AlabamaLyme/info Maybe they can help. They would know better about AL. Some more resources for you (including Support Groups): http://whatislyme.com/lyme-in-alabama/ http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Alabama/ 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 Skin 2: Emergence" DVDs. Check your local library or buy them used online.
