Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for MO.

Your M-I-L needs to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!

They are far and few between, unfortunately. She need to go where they are.

Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance":

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/2/15615?#000005

When she calls for an appointment, have her ask if there are any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

Have her check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/AlabamaLyme/info

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources for her (including Support Groups):
www.lyme-aware.org/alabama.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 have her read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check the local library or buy it used on Amazon.
