Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for FL.
You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment! None in AL. They are far and few between, unfortunately. You need to go where they are. Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance": http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/2/15615?#000005 When you call for an appointment, ask if there are any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this. Check the online state Lyme groups at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FloridaLyme/info Maybe they can help you. Some more resources for you (including Support Groups): www.lyme-aware.org/florida.html The top LLMD, Dr. H, has written a new book entitled, "Why Can't I Get Better?". It is an excellent source of information. Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy it used on Amazon. View "Under Our Skin" for free on www.hulu.com

I have had lyme for over a decade and just moved to Alabama. My Lyme doc is in MO but they connected my with two LLMD in TN not far from me they are Dr. B and Dr. D in TN, however Dr.D has a waiting list to get in and isn't taking appointments till May 2016 but Dr. B is really cool and works with my entire team of docs and therapists. I know that will be a ways for you to drive but that is just the only ones I know so I thought I'd throw it out there. -------------------- Jane M Haltmeyer
