Hi trd, welcome to the board!
Below is a Lyme symptom list. You can have any combination of symptoms.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a doctor recommendation. There is a Lyme doctor close to your area.
It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2008 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the books "The Lyme Disease Solution" by Kenneth B. Singleton M.D. and "Everything You Need To Know about Lyme Disease Second Edition" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.
Thanks so much for all the info. This forum has been so helpful. I also appreciate the MD names and #s. The only problem is some of these docs can see me until August. I just don't know what to do?
Hi trd. Ask to be notified of any cancellations. This can help you get in sooner.
Since you have a positive test, you should be able to get treated. Unfortunately, many doctors undertreat Lyme. For instance, Doxy is often prescribe first. The dose needed for Lyme is 300-600 mg daily, with 400 mg daily often prescribed; however, many doctors will prescribe only 200 mg daily and for too short of a time. Maybe you can find a doctor who will prescribe the right dose for a longer period of time until you can see a Lyme doctor. Try calling the support groups to see if they may know someone.
I did get the one from April 30, but no reply from the May 1 I sent to you with all my labs, etc. Did you receive it from me?
