I need an LLMD in MD/DC too. I live near the DC line by Friendship Heights. Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I sent you some names and LOTS of information on the docs I recommend.
Be sure to read and STUDY the Burrascano Lyme Treatment Guidelines to get an education on the disease that you have, which is really a number of diseases. There is no substitute for an educated patient!
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.
Just sent PM

Hey mommy-o in Bethesda!
If you go to www.MarylandLyme.org and look at the menu to your left you will see "DOCTOR REFERRALS".
Click there to find the names and contact information for health care professionals treating Lyme & TBD's in your state (or any state).
There is also a page with support group information, one for alternative medical professionals, educational conferences across the country, labs and their contact information, one for mental health providers, MTHFR and Morgellons providers.
There is also a list of TBD with how to diagnose (testing), a list of symptoms for each disease and treatment info with links to the treatment guidelines.
