I live in southeastern MA and have been working with a physician in Philadelphia who knows about Thyroid Problems, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Lyme. I have been concerned for a year now that I have Lyme (I have a bunch of very strange neurological symptoms, fatigue, hormone imbalance, heart palpitations, a recent MRI showing brain changes, Oligoclonal bands in my spinal fluid ...). I first saw this doctor in November. Initially he did not think I had Lyme. In December, I asked him to get me a full Lyme panel with IGeneX to put my mind at ease about Lyme. I just received the results. Guess what-- they are positive. He wants me to go to PA weekly for IV treatments antibiotic treatments in addition to taking several different oral antibiotics, supplements, etc.. I would prefer to find a good chronic Lyme doctor near my home and any referrals would be appreciated. Thanks!

Nancy2,

I would like to PM you as the doctor you referred me to does not have appointments until 3/1. I have an appointment on 1/26 and would like to ask you if you have heard of the doc I have the appointment with.

Thanks,

Walt

Down on her knees, she wept on the floor.
This hopeless life, she wanted no more.
Dead in the mind and cold to the bone,
She opened her eyes and saw she was alone. ~Seether
