Hello, I am in need of a LLMD in San Diego area. Would love if I could get some recommendations. I do have a list form LymeDisease.org.
about me: Beginning with what I thought were just 'bug bites' and the flu at the end of December 2020- I subsequently developed many new symptoms over 2020: Salivary, tonsil, and neck pain; shoulder pain, shin pain, heel pain, and muscle pain in abs, hips, legs, and between ribs. Predominately unilateral.
Urgent care gave me amoxicillin, flu shot, and test for Lyme. Negative test by ELISA, but from reading up on Lyme and similar diseases like bartonella; I am not ready to disregard the possibility of infection. Any help, guidance, and support is appreciated.

These are simple E-mail formats that you fill out and they send you LLMD's referrals. It is important that you research each LLMD. To do this, Google for patient's reviews. Another way is to join your area's Lyme support groups. Support group members have first-hand experiences and will gladly share info. Here is a support group near you; https://rawlsmd.com/lyme-support/united-states/california/san-diego-lyme-alliance
Be sure to utilize Lymenet's 'search' function located in the middle of home page. It contains the MOST vast knowledge of Lyme patient's experiences all in one place. And of coarse, if you have any questions, feel free to post and a Lymenet member will respond. We will help in any way.
I will send you a private message.
Please watch "Under Our Skin", a documentary about the struggles Lyme patients face while trying to get diagnosised and treated for Tick Borne Infections.
I don't have any LLMDs to recommend to you in San Diego, CA. I'm sure poster Robin123 has provided some names for you.
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.
