All,

I want to begin by saying I am truly glad I found this site. I can relate to much of what everyone is saying and many of the experiences and medical situations posted on this site. For years I have continued to go downhill physically with symptoms ranging from physical to cognitive to psychological...including headaches, joint/muscle pain, difficulty speaking, mental fog, and difficulty with gait, among many other symptoms (all of which come and go as they please!!). I have spent extraordinary amounts of time and money going to many doctors including GPs, Internal MDs, Neurologists, and Endocrinologists to name some. Nobody has found what is wrong. I have been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, stress-related illnesses, migraines, and others Dxs. To the doctors it is seemingly "all in my head", which actually may not be far from the truth given the way Lyme can bury itself within your brain!!! At any rate all labs conducted, MRIs, CT scans, etc. have come back normal or negative until a recent positive Western Blot. I have been tested for Lyme in the past but only using the ELISA tests, which have all come back negative. I have had full neurological workups for fear that I may have something like Parkinson's or ALS or MS. Muscle and nerve conduction/functioning tests were all normal as well as the usual neurological type tests. So here I am trying to search out some relief for Lyme disease as I truly believe this is what I have. If someone could please provide any information on an LLMD near Memphis, TN or surrounding areas, I would be truly grateful!! Thanks for listening, and I look forward to hearing from some of the others on this site. Take care!

Matt

Hi Matt and welcome - am breaking up your text for easier reading for many here.

At least you figured out what it is you have. That's a big first step for so many of us.

I think Siciliano will be along soon to give you an LLMD list.

I'm sorry but I am no longer accepting any private messages due to my own battle with lyme.
