a few cities near me:

Cherry Hill, NJ
Voorhees, NJ
Media, PA
Plymouth Meeting, PA
Marlton, NJ
Burlington, NJ

This is for a doctor for myself.

I had tests done and sent to igenex in 2004 by a lyme literate md in Maryland.

I now live in Cherry Hill, NJ- a few minutes from Philadelphia and am having a hard time finding a LLMD in Jersey.

When i was tested in 2004 I had a positive negative test result, but he treated me based on symptoms.

This is what i need, a doctor who will treat me on SYMPTOMS.

I went to several different doctors several times here in Jersey and they told me different things from CFS to Allergies to Lupus, all of them said "you dont have lyme"

But i know i do! i saw amazing improvement when i was on Doxycyline! and i have a large number of the symptoms.

I have been bitten several times by ticks, starting when I was 15 (ten years ago) and began to have symptoms at age 16. i did not see a bulls eye.

I was very ill until about a year ago, I am able to be out of bed and I work and go to school now, even though I am not being treated.

however I am starting to experience symptoms again and can see that I may be going down hill again, so I would really like to find a doctor.

If i could find a doc who takes insurance, that would be awesome, but I understand that not all LLMD do.

My CURRENT symptoms include:
moderate joint pain

brain fog

chest/rib pain, discomfort

memory loss, disorientation

always feeling "off balance" and dizzy

neck pain/stiffness

loss of libido

lower abdominal pain, bladder problems


tenderness/ sensitivity to touch

sensitivity to sound

I appreciate any help you all may be able to provide! Thank you so much!

Jennifer :-)

Hey Jennifer,

South Jersey here too.

Washington Township or Sewell, same thing really.

Sorry about your Lyme dx, it really is horrible to deal with this.

I hope you find a LLMD that works for you.

Hope your having a great day!
