My husband was just diagnosed last month and is on antibiotics. He is seeing and ID who is not a specialist. We're worried about how long he's had lymes b/c he's had several ticks embedded in him over the past few years. He is an avid hunter, fisher, and a surveyors assistant. He is outdoors all the time and in the mountains in PA. It took several tests to receive a positive diagnosis even though we were insisting that it was lymes. We need to find a dr. that can help us with where he is in the lyme process, what steps do we take...and so on. If anyone can help please do...THanks!

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.
