Hello,

I live in Raleigh, NC. I've been sick for over two years with what I suspect is bartonella sp. I'm due to be tested using the Galaxy Labs amplified test in August. If positive an infectious disease MD agreed to treat me.

I was wondering, Iliads guidelines state that I should have been treated based on clinical symptoms but none of the many doctors I saw in NC follows that. They don't know anything about this strain and are insisting in confirmation through bloodwork. Is this guideline old or something?

I also need to locate some LLMDs closest to me in case I get stuck. Please provide a referral.

It would be a good idea to post your information and questions in Medical.. (see above)

ILADS is the correct method of treatment since 95% of inf disease drs are clueless when it comes to Lyme and coinfections like bartonella. If you have bart, then you probably have Lyme.

Thanks for the information. The lyme docs in my area are expensive and also go for some hockum complementary and alternative stuff (homeopathy, megavitamins).

They're all expensive when it comes to treating Lyme. It just goes with the territory since we can't get mainstream doctors to treat us.
