At the end of July of this year, I tested positive for Lymes after haveing 4 days of extreme flu like syptoms and then the strange bruises appearing. Since then, I was on a month of Doxycylene. I was feeling great, then the arthritis symptoms started to hit me in my knees ankles and hands. I them started another month of Amoxycilin and was once again feeling great at about the 2 week mark. Now I am one day away from the end of that month and the artritis is back in full force.
I'm looking for a good doctor in MN, WI, IA, or anywhere else within reason. Ideallly one that will accept insurance, but at this point I will pay whatever it takes. I will also travel if need be.
Any help is much appreciated.

Dr. Burrascano's most recent "Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines for Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses" @ http://www.ilads.org/burrascano_0905.html suggests that you discuss with your doctor continuing treatment until you are symptom free for 2 months.
