I'm in Northern Wisconsin, fairly close to Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Neg for Lyme on standard tests, but symptoms of nausea, fatigue, brain fog, cold hands/chills, balance and joint pain resolve with antibiotics. First course was doxy, until I had a possible brain inflammation reaction, switched to Moxie, and have done 3 courses of it, from 10 days to 45 days, and problems resolve each time...and return soon after stopping. Within 2 weeks I'm too sick to work. Doc is an ok guy, and will give me anything I ask for, pretty much...but I told him the symptoms are back, and I didn't want more Amoxicillin...and didn't know what else to suggest trying. He referred me to Rheumatology, so I'm guessing he is looking at an auto-immune condition. After years of dealing with this, I'm about ready to give up.

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.
There is an Illinois lyme facebook (closed) group. You may want to join that group - they are very helpful and will Pm you info regarding docs. Some see WI docs...
