Hello Everyone,

I have been recently diagnosed with what my PCP calls "late stage lyme disease" and she has tried me on a 30 day dosage of doxycycline. It has been 2 months since I finished the doxy and I still don't feel any better and at times I feel as if it's getting worse.

After reading some of the posts, I realize that my symptoms are the same as those of many members here and suspect that I need to seek out an LLMD in my area. I do not fully understand the controvery concerning finding an LLMD but if anyone can help me find one, I live in the seacoast region of New Hampshire and would love to find this kind of doctor. And, I have no problem with getting to most anywhere in NH so I will gladly accept any recommendations of LLMD's in all of NH or the northeastern part of Massachusetts.

I appreciate any help and guidance the members here can give me.
Thank you.

Hi lobolassie,

Welcome to the forum! I'm so glad you have found us:)

A 30 day dose of Doxycycline is definitely not enough for late state Lyme. You will probably have to be on antibiotics alot longer. The dosage for Doxy is between 300-400mg by ILADS guidelines.

Anyway, below is some information that will help you find a good LLMD:

You can email one of our long time members, Ticker at:
ko_@bellsouth.net to find an LLMD in your area. If you'd like more suggestions, you can email: stephanie@turnthecorner.orgYou can also go to: www.turnthecorner.org/bod.htm and ask for further suggestions and also get some information about Lyme Disease. 

ILADS is also a great site to find information and learn even more about Lyme Disease and the correct dosages for antibiotics, etc.
http://www.ilads.org/


For even more info, please read the topic at the top of the first page of this forum tittled, "The Basics, Newbies check this out". It will help you get started learning about lyme.

Dear lobolassie,
 
I am sorry that you are in need of additional treatment.
I believe these POCs can guide you and help match you with the appropriate physician:
 
http://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/Supporters.html  - just click the email POC for the NH group to communicate with them.
 
 
Hope that helps.
 
Blessings,
Sojourner

I am also in dire need of an LLMD in southern, NH. I was referred to one - but that Dr. does not take insurance and they want $205.00 for one little office visit. I would even go to Mass, Boston. Can anyone offer a referral???

$ 205- is so very cheap for a first visit. Most LLMD's also do not take insurance.
