Its important to get your finances in order, as your 1st initial visit can be costly. Start a folder and include in it all your medical records. Blood work, test results, procedures done with results, providers seen, diagnosises, daily symptom chart.
Also be sure to write down EVERYTHING your LLMD tells you, many of us have cognitive difficulties and have short term memory loss.
Any questions you may have along your wellness journey will be answered if you post questions in open forum. Be sure to utilize Lymenet's 'search' function. Such valuable information on all Tick Borne and Vector Borne infections in one website.
Healing wishes. You can do this!!!
I will send you a private message.

I don't know of any neurologists, but contact the WI Lyme Support Groups whose info I'm including below.
You need to be evaluated and treated by a 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.
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.
