Lyme Disease can cause physical as well as psych problems, because the bacteria which causes it, Borrelia burgdorferi, cross the blood/brain barrier. I don't know of any LL Psychiatrists in VA or any LLMDs in VA who treat psych problems.
Check with the VA Lyme Support Groups I listed below. One of the top LL Psychiatrists is in NJ, but he only treats psychiatric problems resulting from Lyme, not Lyme Disease itself.
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!
A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.
