A good llmd should be able to treat any tick-borne disease or co-infection.

If you think you are infected with RMSF, you should be seen asap. It can kill you quickly.

Even the family mds in my state tx it right away. People die here every year from it.

Thank you, I was diagnosed May 2013 and was treated for the last year with doxycycline and another antibiotic. Last blood work came back inactive. I am still plagued with profound pain and soreness along with my eyesight is very blurry more days than not. Looking for a doctor who can help me with the residual effects.

Did you check in 'Seeking a Doctor' here on lymenet?

Illinois is a big state. You could be able to go to someone in WI, or MI, or MO or IA. Don't rule out the neighboring states.

Go to Support Groups in the menu on the upper left of this page and you will find some people in your state you can contact. They will know about doctors.
All the best,
Ann - OH

Sure, any LLMD can treat for any tick-borne illness. They are finding that RMSF can become chronic, just like Lyme. Both need to be treated.

It is rare to get only ONE illness from a tick, so you likely have more than "just" RMSF.

You have a very good LLMD in your state and a very good one in MO. If you haven't posted in Seeking a Doctor, please do so. We will help you find a Dr!! [Smile]

Moving this to Medical Questions for more help.

yes they should, I have RMSF low grade chronic (in addition to lyme and other co-infections) and my LLMD has treated it with Byron White AL formula (natural medicine, grapeseed alcohol tincture) and Rx oral doxycycline (sepatately, the oral doxy was very little help to me bc I have GI issues, but had some improvement on the AL formula). That treats Lyme but also tends to treat RMSF, there is some overlap. Today I'm trying Byron White RMSF/4ab formula for the first time, it is one of his newer formulas just for RMSF. I'll try to come back and follow up after a week on this or more.

Hope you get into an LLMD asap, good luck

Yes! An LL ND treated me for it.

It is a bad one-needs to be treated as soon as possible.

Mine was low chronic too. Had the spots all over for 11 years-started doxy and others and was spot free in less than a month.

A good LL can treat any tickborne illness, and also other things like immune dysfunction, heavy metals and mold toxins, vitamin and hormone deficiencies.

just floowing up on the Byron White RMSF formula. First day, was like a vampire sucked out what little energy I had left but hasn't been that bad since. More fatigue after taking it, have worked up from 4 to 6 drops in a week. I'd say this is gentle, but hard to know how much it's wiping out without more bloodword to see IgG and IgM and getting feedback from my llmd

Good luck getting treated!
