I would be grateful for a referral for a lyme literate doc in Queens or Long Island. This is for my 86 year old mother, who lives in Queens Village, near the Nassau Border -- near Manhasset, Great Neck, New Hyde Park.
She was treated with 3 weeks of oral antibiotics after a tick bite (the tick tested positive for Lyme), about 8 years ago. Since then, she had a stroke, from which she recovered. For the past 4 years, she has had unexplained terrible fatique, sleepiness, trouble keeping her eyelids open, trouble walking, depression, anxiety, frequent urination, uneven blood pressure, fainting.
I was thinking that these symptoms coincide with Lyme symptoms, and that she should be evaluate by someone who knows the disease.
Does anyone know a doc in Queens or Long Island -- someone who takes Medicare, I suppose?
