I wanted to add that I am willing to travel to get a dx and treatment by someone who knows what they're doing! Any help is really appreciated. It's been very bad for so long I'm wondering if I will ever be without pain again

copying cag's 1st post here so ALL of comments are in one spot ....
I'm new to this page.
I have been struggling with weird and painful stuff for years.
My husband saw a mystery dx show and all of the symptoms fit, the woman had lyme. Started researching and it fits better than the ms fibro, cfs, mvps, etc that the dr.s have thought.
I was hoping someone could tell me there is a dr close to me that actually looks at me as a whole person and gives a rip. I would appreciate any info someone could give me. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
cag, calif. has many llmds....
is your city closest to which of these locations??
please show which area is CLOSEST to you, and we will send you THOSE NAMES.... thanks! ******************************************

Betty's POSTING GUIDELINES
When you post or reply, please break up your solid, continuous block text welcome to the board! many of us have neuro lyme where we can NOT read long solid block text and be able to comprehend and read it as is.
please edit your post by CLICKING PAPER/PENCIL ICON to right of your name. that opens up BOTH subject line and body text.
now please break up your WORDY SENTENCES into one sentence paragraphs. Then hit ENTER KEY ``THREE`` after each paragraph; we need that space for comprehension.
if you are NOT a wordy person, you can do 2 or 3 total ok. do this for your entire post.
NOTE: you do NOT have to use "", just show the name of person you are responding to, and then type your comment.
IF you need to use "", PLEASE DELETE "BOLD" CODES so it's regular type text we read vs. the DARK, HARSH/PAINFUL BOLDING.
specifically, delete the first 4 characters of 2ND LINE of a ""
[QB] just delete these 4 characters, and BOLDING is GONE! my eyes will really appreciate that; it's one very bad side effect of my having lyme for 38.5 years!! xox
then go to left hand corner and mark box to receive ALL REPLIES, and click EDIT SEND
we thank you for helping us; otherwise, we will SOB, SCROLL ON BY, since we can't read to help you. If I see posts like this, I SOB them; to hard on me.
