I am currently sick. It could be anything, but I am suspicious that I might possibly have Lyme. I saw my primary yesterday and got the usual textbook responses and was sent home empty handed and will no test. I've been running a temp for several days and have achey back muscles and feel very low. And I've had abdominal cramping for days. It's not like me to get something like this in the summer.

I don't remember getting a tick bite (and I do tend to be very sensitive to their saliva and get very, very itchy) but I know so many people who have a similar story who were dismissed and are now seriously ill. I just want to be taken seriously. I'll travel anywhere in the Greater Boston area.

Hi I am trying to find a LLMD (lyme literate Dr.) in the Boston area as well. If need be, I will travel to Dr. J in CT but thinking since I'm in a great area of Drs., there must be one that is lyme literate?...HELP!! This is for my 15 year old PANDAS son who MAY have lyme. Thank you, momofallboys

momofallboys... It's best to begin your own thread. You will get more help.

here is how to post your own:

Believe me, taking a child to Dr J is FAR BETTER than going to any LLMD in MA.

Be SURE to fully check out the possibility of Lyme because PANDAS treatment involves steroids. If your son takes steroids and it's LYME, it will make it far worse and he may not recover from it.
