Feeling very confused and frustrated. I don't talk here very often so I hope this topic isn't red flagging--I'm a late-stage, chronic Lyme patient posing serious query not someone on the other side looking for doctors to target, swear on my life.

I am very grateful for the PMs I recieved for CT (and NY) LLMDs (http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/2/24592?). After researching a bit, I made and talked to my first choice and learned that this LLMD does not use introvenous abx (nor intramuscular), "only oral antibiotics."

IV antibiotics are controversial and come with risk, I am in full possession of the arguments and the facts. I am also only 32 years old, have been sick almost my entire life, and in my experience oral antibiotics do not work because my GI tract (especially when I'm herxing) is effected by my screwed up nervous system. It causes neurological rapid transit of the GI. So, the oral route for getting antibiotics into me is equivalent to carrying water to somebody using a collander.

I've also been (and still) using Byron White formulas and am always amazed by their potency, but I plateued on them. I would be happy to do an all natural protocol and discover what feeling well is like. But that hasn't happened yet all natural, with mold remediation to boot, I've plateaued and patience for a gentle treatment regimen comes at the cost of time when my life has been wasted dealing with being constantly sick since age 14. Magic bullet? Of coarse not, but I have yet to hear a compelling reason to not now try the IV route, compare it, and proceed based on results.

So I have good reasons to ask for IV abx, just as the patients who switch to all natural protocols do. A natural protocol was MY first preference. Every case is different.

Besides moving back to the northeast, one of the reasons I'm looking for a new LLMD is because my current one also does not do IV abx as a rule.

So please, can any of you let me know about your LLMD anywhere in CT, or NY area (proximal to brooklyn), who will use IV abx?

Thank you for taking the time!
