Any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure my current primary is working fast enough or thoroughly enough. I now feel my adrenals are struggling again but have never had success with endocrinologists who don't seem to get it!

wenan, please expand more on your comments.

why do you feel primary care doc isn't working fast enough? how long have you been sick

and how long has this doc been treating you? [confused]

Sorry Betty, I didn't want to go on too much. The

gist of it is, I am working with a PCP who I

really like - her focus, however, is on the

mercury and the candida, which has helped a lot.

I started getting very sick in JUly of this '06

(weird flu, exhaustion, aches) I found her after

what felt likea long haul - too long a story for

here. My lyme results were indeterminate and she

feels I have lyme but is unable to treat me due to

my intolerance of antibiotics, as well as some

concern about treating me without a "true" lyme

result on the IGENEX. At this point some of the

adrenal issues seem to be coming back and due to

my liver issues I want to look into working with

someone that can hold all three of my conditions -

using herbs, homeopathy, etc. I hope this makes

sense. I am not eager to leave her - that is not

what I am saying, it is more of trying to find

someone who understands other modalities.

I think you should contact lyme support groups for infomation on that.

You'll be able to get info. If you don't already go to one, you should...very informative of what people are doing. What doc says what, & why and is it working?

CT has Hartford group (where I hang) or Ridgfield area, Wilton, University of New haven has a group now too.

Don't know if Eastern CT has any. Oh, I see there is one.

wenan,

thanks for the info; it is helpful to us if you provide us more info like you did the 2nd time around; more options in our minds this way! [Big Grin]

i also agree w/dmc! go to left hand side SUPPORT GROUPS, by state, and closest to you. click on their link whether they want you to call or email them!

they know who is GOOD FOR MONEY and who is taking patients and NOT! good luck! they have more current info than those of us w/llmd lists!

Betty and dmc, thanks for the advice. I will check out the support group in Hartford area - not too far for me. Peace.
