I have been in treatment for a 3 months now after having lyme and co's for 2 years. my llmd has a blanket regimen of doxy flagy which he promised me will work for all infections.

im doing everything correct as far as diet and supplements, but zero progress.

he also won't test for bart(says its not common) and i suspect i may have it with major neuro/cns issues. since starting treatment ive reacted w/ major physical pain, maybe its just the meds.

i am thinking of switching to a doc in D.C. because hes only a few hrs from me. i have invested so much with my current llmd but he is unwaivering on treatment options and distant, but has helped others i know successfully w/ lyme.

should i wait a few months to see if I see respond to oral abx treatment? Would i be jumping the gun by switching to the D.C. doc? Does anyone know anything about Dr. J in D.C.?

its a tough call for me because id hate to drag my wife and kids through this and i know this new doc is going to be extremely expensive and like a lot on here, we are not financially prepared for iv drugs. but i need to get better for my family.

thanks so much for any input [Smile]

If all you've been given is doxy and flagyl, then I can see why you are not making progress. Have you been checked for all coinfections? Nearly every Lyme patient has them.

Moving this to Medical Questions for more help.

Opinions, not medical advice!
