Hi, Ellen! Thanks so much for responding. Yes, I really think we need to find another LLMD closer to our home. We live in Maryland, I would welcome any specifics on a LLMD in the Gaithersburg/Rockville area.
I was wondering if you had be given a Babs. test, and if so, which one and did you show positive? I guess I'm panicking somewhat because she is so very, very sick. I wasn't sure if between now and when we do find a LLMD and get scheduled, if there was any point in getting her on arteminisin - she's just restarted Plaquenil, so my very burned out brain was thinking maybe this combo would be better than nothing. Guess I'm just grasping at straws!
Anyway, would love to her back from anyone that could recommend a really good dr. in our area of Maryland. Thanks again, Ellen, and I was very glad to hear that some of your symptoms have subsided. It's nice to hear good news for a change! God bless!
Hi shaadowmom. I am sorry your sister is so sick. I think twicebitten has give you great advice. It is very important to see a knowledgeable doctor when treating tick-borne illnesses. Which Lyme doctor was your sister seeing (please use initials only)?
What happened when your sister was on Mepron and Zithromax? Are you aware of the herx reaction?
If you would like a doctor recommendation, you can email me at email@example.com
It can take time, but with proper treatment your sister can get better. She is lucky to have your support.
