Hi! Welcome to Lymenet!

For those of us not from MD, would you please explain what "DMV" is? Thanks.

Thanks!

Sure, sorry about that - it is the DC/Maryland/Virginia area, it centers on Washington DC and includes the areas of Maryland and Virginia around it.

Thanks for the explanation. PM sent for MD & VA.

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.

Here is a link for them:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

Unfortunately, LLMDs are far and few between. You need to go where they are. At least half of all Lyme patients go out-of-state for proper treatment.

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

When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

Contact the DC, MD & VA Lyme Support Groups - they would know better about their state.

https://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Maryland/

https://whatislyme.com/lyme-in-virginia/

https://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Virginia/

Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information.

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Get it at your local library or buy it used online.

Looking for references for an LLMD in the DMV. My LLMD of 5 years is now retiring. Any Recommendations would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you,

ZillasMom - sent you names for DC & VA. Be sure you get personal references from patients, not just a name.

Contact the DC, MD & VA Lyme Support Groups - they would know better about their state.
