I am needing to find a LLMD doctor for my husband as soon as possible. We live in Tennessee but are willing to travel wherever necessary to get the best treatment. He has been being treated to some degree, but the treatment he has been receiving hasn't helped.
We've decided it is time to move on to a doctor more familiar with Lyme. He is becoming sicker everyday so we need to get him with a good doctor as soon as possible! I appreciate any suggestions you have for us. As with most people with Lyme, we've reached a point of desperation!

I sent you a name. And, you will see the doctor, not Physicians Assistants. I think you will be very happy with this doctor.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for MD.
Your husband 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.
Btw - I know you are new to Lymenet, but please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme. Thanks.
