My wife was diagnosed with lupus many years ago, but no treatments have ever really helped, so for a while had simply been treating the pain. I think she has more symptoms in common with Lyme than lupus and would really like to get her to a specialist. I hate seeing her suffer all the time. Can I get a referral to a LLMD in the Houston, Texas area? Thank you.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for TX.
Your wife 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.
