I have relocated from Wa state with a diagnosis and past treatment by a LLND, and cannot afford to travel out of state.

I received some recommendations on docs last year in the DFW area, but lacked finances to see them.

I need to start over with someone here and get a new IGeneX panel to see where things are at. I'm having some struggles with co-infections.

Are there still docs here in TX who can help me? I read a post that told someone there were no docs here.

I'm in Fort Worth. The GREAT LLMD in DFW retired last year, and now there aren't any left down here. At least, to the best of my knowledge. TX is a rough state to have Lyme in.

There is a Dr. M in the DFW area, who is not accepting new patients. His nurse said he has gotten absolutely overloaded with Lyme patients since our other LLMD retired.

The closest LLMD that I am aware of is about 5 hours from Dallas, in LA. My daughter saw him several times and we were pleased with his treatment.

We now fly to see an LLMD in another state every 4 months. There are several docs that require an initial in-office visit, and then offer follow-ups by phone.

The folks on this board are extremely helpful in helping you locate an LLMD. I received many very useful suggestions when I was looking for another doctor to treat my daughter and myself.

Is there any way possible for you to travel anywhere out of state?

It's my impression that you can't get quality treatment for CLD in TX anymore. No ILADS-active LLMD.

To conserve finances, skip additional IGeneX testing now. You'll need to focus on eliminating parasites and co-infections. Successful LL practitioners can treat based on clinical evaluation.

Maybe your goal for now could be to get a Lyme-aware or Lyme-friendly PCP who will order blood work for CBC and liver panels, etc. Then search for threads here on what to do when funds are very scant.

Where there's a will, there's a way!

Start imagining yourself with a LLMD out-of-state, and then get help here laying out the path to achieve long-term remission.

Best,
Smile
