I am in a situation where my daughter and I qualify for free health insurance from the state. i have to let my coverage laps to go to the LLMD because it is illeagle to pay for treatment of any doctor while under this coverage because you shouldnt be able to afford it. So i need to ask my doctor if I should go on IV therepy. But i cannot afford to pay for that.
Does your regular family doctor have the authority to put you on IV abx. To treat you period for Lyme if he/she wishes. So that I can afford it .
The fam doc is covered the LLMD is not.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

Any doctor can prescribe IV abx in certain situations (such as sepsis, certain blood infections, etc.). It might be interesting to see if your family doctor is willing to prescribe the IV abx for you...perhaps explain that you can't afford them unless he is the one who prescribes them but that you need them for treatment of whatever infections you have (Lyme, coinfections). Also, if you have a chronic viral infection that has lasted more than 2 weeks, I've been told that means most MD's should automatically assume there is a secondary bacterial infection, thus warranting abx.

V, you can go to anyDR as long as you are not paying for it, but your dad can. i was in your boat many yrs ago when my daughter was a baby. and my mom paid for me to go to a ciro. for my back. it did not exfect my state health ins.

its just a thought on how to help you, good luck and get well soon. :)

Dr S probably won't give you IV anyways. Do you think your regular dr will? For how long though?

My daughter has this insurance too and she can't get tested for Lyme cause Dr S can't see her if she's on state insurance. Sucks!
One BIG Lyme family!! Possibly congential...
~I tested CDC positive 10/08
~My mom Igenex positive 11/08
~My brother Igenex positive 4/09
~My 2 boys some positive & IND bands, clinical diagnosis 3/09
~My youngest has Aspergers too (a form of autism)

Amy where have you been everytime i try to email you i never hear from u. i emailed you a couple days ago. My daughters fam pediatrician worked w me to do the western blot. Igenex will send you the kit with the fed ex bag prepaid and everything. Then all you do it have your doctor sign the section they have to fill out and set you up with a lab to draw the blood then the prescription paper to the lab says fill tube and return to patient. then you bring to fed ex like you have done before . He doesnt do iv therepy? really.

Ask the family doc if he can put you on this treatment.
