You must become your own healthcare advocate. Research to learn all you can about Tick and Vector Borne Infections. Lymenet has an excellent 'search' function located in the middle of home page that contains Lyment members experiences with every aspect of this debilitating disease. Or you can simply post your question and someone will respond.
Get your finances in order as Lyme is expensive to treat because LLMD'S don't accept insurances. Here's why;
In order to save money, get prepared for your first appointment with your LLMD. Start a folder and include all blood work results, tests preformed, medications list, daily symptoms list, and every medical practitioner seen and every medical procedure done with a copy of results.
Good luck to you on your healing path. I will send you a private message.

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.
