I dont know much about tularemia but i googled it and it doesnt look like psyc sx are issue

Conjunctivitis and skin problems are biggest thing. Tetracycine is first drugjdidnt say dosage. Some complicstions with othet infections but usually good prognosis

This is wht is said online. I have no first hand experience

They say lyme is easy to cure online too so i hope someone with more experience replys

Take care of yourself....also mass and cape cod look like hot spot for it so you arent that far away

Lip: do you also see an LL psychiatrist?

I see an LLMD and also Dr B the LL neuropsychiatrist in NJ and its quite helpful. Especially since my symptoms are 60% neuro.

AG - what does the LL-psych do for you that the other docs don't?
Posted by A.G. (Member # 44713) on :
He's not addressing the infections directly (I still have my Llmd. This Dr is another part of my team. But is addressing the neuropsych symptoms that are causing me distress.

My Llmd would keep telling me I needed to detox more to help my brain fog or would try me on some supplements but my brain and nervous system symptoms were debilitating and too severe for only that that type of treatment (along with antibiotics.

So I started seeing this LLpsych and he is addressing my: anxiety, brain fog, memory and concentration problems, sensitivity to light and sound, irritability, sleep problems, hypervigilance, depression...

I have PTSD as well, so it was hard to know what was Lyme and what was PTSD...he told me that having both Lyme AND Ptsd makes each
other worse.

Hope this helps.
