You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!
A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.
A couple of years ago I was told doctors in CO do not treat aggressively enough, because CO is extremely tough on any doctor who does. The medical board is relentless on them. Posters on Lymenet from CO recommend going out-of-state to see a LLMD.
When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.
Contact the CO Lyme Support Groups. They would know better about CO.
Were you referring to your username or the signature line? The username is the one you are known by and post with on Lymenet.
As I mentioned before, you need to contact one of the moderators to change your username.
For your username make one up, but don't use personal info such as real first/last names, address, phone number, date of birth, zip code, etc.
You don't need to use a signature in the signature line and can leave it blank. As you can see, I don't have one or others on Lymenet, for that matter.
