Looking for one for my 17 yr old daughter. Had test done by Igenex and she has some + bands.
Plus, CD57 only 29 so something is going on.

Has bad eczema, uveitis and JRA;dx at 4 yrs. old.

Suspect some kind of chronic infect.caused by either tick or insect bite when she was little and we lived in NH. Docs never asked or mentioned lyme (no surprise)but also never tested fluid in her knee before cort. shots.

She's been on eyedrops and cort. cream for skin and various immunosuppresants over the years but nothing for last few years except cort eyedrops.

REALLY want to clear this out before she gets any older and it turns into something more dire.(assuming it hasn't already)
The worst part is a 17 yr old wants to be normal and her skin is hard to hide... [Frown]

Any help is soo appreciated!! Thanks!

I don't know of any in Idaho. Are you able to travel?

Check the online state Lyme groups at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/statenamelyme

Maybe they can help you.

Some more resources for you:
www.lyme-aware.org
www.ilads.org
www.lymediseaseassociation.org

Once you get some names, write a new post in "Seeking a Doctor" to ask for personal references. This way, you will find the right doctor to give your daughter the correct treatment.

I also have a name for Montana if that helps.
