For anyone in Idaho looking for help do not go to Dr. M, Dr S, Dr S, Dr R, Dr N, or Dr F in Moscow. Nor should you go to Dr. C, or Dr. M in Spokane.

I have tried them all and they believe false notions about Lyme and want to send you to local labs only.

They also want to treat each and every symptom individually. "what you need is a neurologist" "What you need is an arthritis specialist." "What you need is an ear nose and throat specialist." "Maybe you should see a diagnostic Dr."

They might think you have nothing a few depression and a little exercise can't clear up. They will diagnose you with nothing or Lupus or anything that is not LYme and will declare your positive western blot to be falst positive when it is loaded with antibodies.

They will give you prednisone, pain pills with codine, boost your curry powder but will not give you antibiotics with-out you threatening them and then they won't know how long or how much or anything about co-infections. They will give you EKG tests, MRI tests and x-rays before ordering a Lyme test and even then it won't be from a lab that knows what they are doing. There will be no report of bands or numbers of bands, just the words "Negative for Lyme"

If you live in Idaho and are looking for help consider e-mailing me first to find who I have tried. No need to make the same costly mistakes twice.

I'm still searching for Idaho doctors who have potential to research and treat for Lyme but not for myself. I had to travel quite a distance for help.

If you want to contact me, I will help you all I can. I can tell you who I finally got to help me but am sorry to say there is no one for Idaho.

Thanks for the info, electra! I will add it to my notes when I locate them!!! [I'm in the middle of moving!]

Opinions, not medical advice!
