Topic: Seeking LLMD in Houston, Texas area

My wife was diagnosed with lupus many years ago, but no treatments have ever really helped, so for a while had simply been treating the pain. I think she has more symptoms in common with Lyme than lupus and would really like to get her to a specialist. I hate seeing her suffer all the time. Can I get a referral to a LLMD in the Houston, Texas area? Thank you.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for TX.
Your wife needs 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. Here is a link for them: http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf LLMDs are far and few between, unfortunately.She needs to go where they are. At least half of all Lyme patients travel out-of-state for their care. 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?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0 Please read the following about LLMDs and Texas which was recently posted about TX: "Texas is not a great place to find a good Lyme doctor. Texas threatens its Lyme doctors and gets them to move or stop practicing without notice. Then, if they start up again a year or so later, they do it to them again. So, there really are few Lyme doctors." Check the online state Lyme groups at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TexasLyme/info Maybe they can help. Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info): http://whatislyme.com/websites-and-support-groups-by-state/ www.txlda.org http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Texas/ Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and his new one, "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information. Read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Get it at your local library or buy it used on Amazon.
