Hello everyone, it has been a long time since my last post!

I have been experiencing a lot of symptoms lately, feels like a relapse, and I am desperate for a good LLMD.

Currently living in Montreal, so I am seeking a LLMD within a day's drive, in upstate NY or Vermont.

Thank you in advance! Forever grateful for the advice I have received from this community.

Welcome back to Lymenet! PM sent for upstate NY.

I don't have any names for Vermont, but following are some links for Lyme Support Groups there.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:

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

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

Some more resources (including Support Groups info):

http://whatislyme.com/lyme-disease-in-vermont/

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

Here is some more info for Canada you should have:

I don't know of any LLMDs in Canada, as I was told the climate there is very bad for Lyme treatment.

Check the Canadian Lyme Group at:
www.canlyme.com

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/Canada/

Here is a website I found entitled, "The Lyme Maze - Navigating Lyme Disease in Canada":

http://thelymemaze.blogspot.com/p/igenex-lab.html

Also a good resource for Canadians with Lyme:
http://murakamicentreforlyme.org/Home.htm

*Note: Dr. Murakami was the top LLMD in Canada before he retired.

Some additional resources for you to study:

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

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy them used on online.

"Ending Denial (Updated in 2013): The Lyme Disease Epidemic - a Canadian Public Health Disaster" by Helkie Ferrie.

The description written about this book on Amazon is as follows:

"This book includes tips and tricks for getting treatment and testing if you live in Canada. Lyme is becoming a public health crisis in Canada. An estimated 20,000 Canadians become sick with Lyme every year, but patients are not allowed access to internationally recognized tests and are denied successful treatments.

The disease is readily treatable with conventional antibiotics, even in its chronic form. A call for action from patients, doctors, researchers, and politicians, this book contains life-saving resources with over 450 pages. It also includes access information to reliable tests for Lyme Disease not available in Canada, as well as effective treatment guidelines."

Dr. H in NY, one of the top Lyme doctors.
I have been with them for many years. They are great experts, but it is not cheap:)

Thank you, Sing02!

I did try first to contact Dr. H, but their phone message said that they are not accepting new patients. I hope that they will start taking new patients again in the future.

I did get some good tips from Bartenderbonnie and Hopingandpraying, so I am trying to get in to an LLMD they recommended. No answers to my phone calls and emails so far, but I will keep trying!
