My recent arthritic specialist won't put my muscle twitches connected with joint pain. He says everyone gets muscle twitches and that it is normal. That's a red flag for me to move on to someone else.

He diagnosed Lupus for now until I see him again in six months. I think I have Lyme and I need a doctor to care for me. Does anyone know of a doctor in my area?

Spokane infectious disease specialist will only see me if I can produce a positive Western Blot. My two tests from two different labs have come back negative. (blood drawn after prednisone pac and 13 day antibiotic) dur....

Am waiting for a third one from IgenX labs. Don't want that doctor now anyway. Please help if you can.

Gladyrae,
I asked for a list of Lyme Literate Doctors in my area from the Lyme Disease Foundation and they sent me the name of a doctor in Moscow, ID which is where you live I believe. If you email me I will send you the name of the doctor. I do not know anything about her but it might be worth checking out. I don't believe that I can name the doctor on this site.
I just found out in October that I possibly have lyme and have started treatment. My tests were sent to the Igenex lab in California. The doctor that treated me is with the FFC in Bellevue, WA and she seems to be well informed as far as treatment. But I may check out the Idaho doctor as it is a little closer. I live in Deer Park, WA.
Good luck !

I live in Idaho and there are NO LLMD's in Idaho. I don't believe there are any LLMD's in Utah or Oregon that are really LLMD.

I travel to California to get treated.

I graduated college from U of I in Moscow. Lovely town!

I will pm you with info.

As I understand it, the "LLMDs" on Lyme Disease Foundation are self-registered. Be careful. I know of several cases where the so-called LLMD was definitely not, and was just fishing for patients. Ask for specific feedback, using just enough information to locate and id the dr if someone actually knows them (for instance, town, one initial, gender).

I would love to know more about the person in Bellevue, as I am interested in moving back to northern WA state(home for me, close to family). Please contact me privately if you have info on a for-real LLMD in the NW.

Thanks for the warning. I have an appointment today however. It is another risk of bills with nothing to show for it.

I feel desperate enough to dive into this hope one more time for a doctor in my own city.

Also, when I find the temporarily lost folder I will let you know the Bellvue doc's name.

Gladyrae, good luck with your appointment with the local doc. Please let me know how it goes and what you think. You never know. I wouldn't mind living near Moscow myself: my mom went to college there, and I spent many years working with folks in the area. Yep, nice town, and Pullman just across the border. I like that area. Maybe I'll see about moving there. As long as it is in the West!

As I wrote you privately, I already know about that specific doc in Bellevue, and am not particularly impressed. I'd rather travel to CA to see a highly recommended LLMD there, someone with a real track record. But I know there are good docs who sort of fly under the radar; it's just a matter of finding them.

Dayle Ann
