I live in North Mississippi and I am seeking a doctor to run tests to see if I have LD... I had two ticks imbedded in my head for about four months before I could finally get a np to dig into the spots to see why I was having so much trouble. She burned them out but did no tests. She also quit seeing me because of all the neurological problem I was having. HELP NEEDED.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for Louisiana.

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!

A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.

Here is a link for them:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

LLMDs are far and few between, unfortunately. You need to go where they are. I don't know of any in MS.

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?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0

When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MississippiLyme/info

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info):
www.lyme-aware.org/mississippi.html

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Mississippi/

The top LLMD, Dr. H, has written a book entitled, "Why Can't I Get Better?". It is an excellent source of information.

Read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Get it at your local library or buy it used on Amazon.

View "Under Our Skin" for free on www.hulu.com

Btw - you should not use your real name on Lymenet because this is a public forum with all sorts of people on it. Read the following link which explains why:

"Please Do Not Post Your Real Name"
http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=011844;p=0

To remove your name from the signature line, click on "My Profile" under LymeNet Flash, then "Edit Profile" on the left side. Scroll down to "Profile Fields" where it says "Signature". Make your change, then click "Update Profile".

You would have to contact the moderators to ask how to change you posting name.

Dmalone, Did you find a Lyme Dr in North MS? I'm seeing one in *** Undecided on the plan of treatment from here after getting some positive co-infection tests back. Would love to know what all the options are for LLMDs in this area!

***edited name of LLMD's city***
