I recently relocated to the East Coast in search of better treatment than that which I was receiving in Columbia, MO. I have found a wonderful doctor here, but really would like to move back home to the Midwest.

Does anyone see a Lyme literate practitioner in MO/KS/AR that they trust for advanced neurological lyme?

None in those states that I would recommend.

Since you have a good doctor now, why not find out what his/her protocol is for out-of-state patients if you moved back. This may be a good option.

What Sammi said and/or check out to see if they will do Skype or phone follow ups.

If not...

Please go to www.VirginiaLyme.org and look at the menu to your left you will see "DOCTOR REFERRALS".

Click there to find the names and contact information for health care professionals in many fields who are treating Lyme & TBD's in all of the states.

Hope that helps! Good luck to you!

Looking to help a friend in Springfield, MO whose young daughter is showing possible signs of tick borne illness. Based on personal experience, I will not send her to Dr. C in Columbia, MO. Are there any other suggestions for that area (SW MO, NW AR, etc.)?? The little girl is in the throes of a second sustained high fever in less than two weeks; the last one was accompanied by hallucinations. No diagnosis from local hospitals; "negative tick panel"--whatever! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

nataliathespy - Welcome to Lymenet!

PM sent with names of LLMDs in different states. Dr. C is the only one I know of in MO.

You should write a new post instead of adding on to an existing one, because most don't re-read old ones. That way, more people will see it and respond.

I don't know of any LLMDs in the states you mentioned. Have your friend check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MissouriLyme/info

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources (including Support Group info):
http://whatislyme.com/websites-and-support-groups-by-state/

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

Here are some links with good information about Lyme and children:

http://www.childrenslymenetwork.org/

https://sites.google.com/site/drjoneskids/symptoms-literature

https://sites.google.com/site/drjoneskids/home

Here is a link for a book titled, "When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent's Survival Guide" which also might be helpful:

http://www.lymeliteratepress.com/

Btw - I know you are new to Lymenet, but please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.

To do this click the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.

Natalia, what is wrong with Doc C? I have an appointment with him in about a month. I am new to this forum. I have not seen a doctor yet for all of my lyme symptoms.

Is there someone else in the Kansas City / or Missouri someone could recommend?

Mashieniblick - Welcome to Lymenet!

I would recommend you write a new post in "Seeking a Doctor" and title it "Need Feedback on Dr. C in MO" (no full first or last names or towns allowed per Lymenet rules). Most don't re-read old posts. That way more people will see it and respond.

You may write a PM (Private Message) to poster 'nataliathespy' to ask for further info abut him. Click the envelope icon with two people standing next to it where her post is. A form will come up so you just fill it out then click "Send New Private Message".
