Hi all,

Last week I took my husband to a pain management doctor that turned out to be a mega duck. He pretty much called the LLMD a quack. He asked who diagnosed him with lyme and when we told him he said "well lyme is controversial and there are many quacks out there" and then told us we needed to see another doctor that he said is a lyme specialist. It ended in a loud arguement.

Today my husband saw another pain management doctor from a list from the LLMD (originally when I asked they said they didn't have a referral list - second time I asked, they did). He was WONDERFUL. Understands lyme, was caring and didn't judge.

It's such a relief to now have both a LLMD to treat my husband and a pain doctor that can help him function until we get rid of the lyme.

I know everyone has had their fair share of ducks. It really makes you appreciate the doctors that are on our side.

Wish I could tell you the whole story... but I had a duck call my LLMD a quack too. I told my LLMD about it and we had a good laugh.

The opposite of a duck is a good LLMD! [Cool]

Grrrrrrr ducks made me wanna scream!

Sorry you had to put up with that garbage! What an IDIOT!!!!

I think ALL of us should print out the Attorney General's press release and take it to every new appointment. When they act all DUCKY ... we should toss it on the table.. walk out and don't pay.

If we keep paying them to act like BUTT heads... they will continue to hurt more and more people.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr.. now I am mad again!

STUPID DUCKS!!!

Tincup,

Don't be mad - we have to know the bad ones to appreciate the good ones! I was proud of my husband for standing up to him and arguing. And he was still able to get the duck to write a 30 day pain killer prescription.

Lymetoo - I will gladly feed the duck to the alligators [Smile]

i've been to so many doctors that say lyme is not in texas that i could scream.

anymore i want to ask before make an appointment if they believe in lyme, if they don't, then i just go elsewhere.

Randibear,

When I told my PCP that I felt strongly that I had Lyme, he said, "Lyme disease is extremely rare and only in Connecticut."

johnnyb: you said your pharmacist asked: "I don't know why insurance companies don't want to cover medicines for lyme disease. There's so many cases out there and people need medicine."

well . . . this is a big part of the problem. The insurance DENIERS are actually writing articles and getting them into newspapers. Here's one current example:


http://www.sunherald.com/prnewswire/story/605710.html

SunHerald.com South Mississippi's Newspaper Online.

When Are Antibiotics for Lyme Disease Medically Necessary?
Guidelines downplay antibiotic treatment for longstanding symptoms


- article at link.

AND - I posted in ACTIVISM in case someone had energy to do something about this. The PR Firm is from the Portland, OR area but this appears in a newspaper, like a regular article. No fact checkers.
