I haven't asked in a few years, wondering if there are any LLMDs now closer to where I live. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for IA.
You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment! Unfortunately, LLMDs are far and few between. You need to go where they are. Also, most LLMDs do not take insurance due to the politics surrounding this disease. Read poster TF's explanation about this: "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance" http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/2/15615?#000005 Check the online state Lyme groups at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/iowalyme Maybe they can help. Some more resources (including Support Group info): www.lyme-aware.org/iowa.html The top LLMD, Dr. H, has written a new book entitled, "Why Can't I Get Better?". It is an excellent source of information. Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy it used on Amazon. View "Under Our Skin" for free on www.hulu.com
