I am finally getting some treatment!!!!! smilewinkgrin
I have not had any access to a LLMD of any sort for the last 3 years - I can't travel the distances to get to them on a regular basis.
I have had to not only diagnose myself with new tick infections, but Hashi's as well, as the docs in my area don't seem terribly concerned with the health of their patients.
Also, over the course of the last 3 weeks, I have also determined that I was getting into adrenal fatigue, but also found out that there are no good tests for adrenal fatigue, until you get into adrenal failure - a place I sure didn't want to go!!!!

Last Tuesday, I had my first appt with an 'almost local' Doctor of Acupuncture! turn This gal is well trained in acupuncture therapies, well schooled in Traditional Chinese Medicine & a Master Herbologist!!! She also has started me on a homeopathic tx for adrenal support.
I have used acupuncture before, back in '04 before I realized that I was dealing with a number of tick born illnesses, and had really great results. That doc had me feeling better than I had ever felt in my entire teenage & adult life!!

I have tried a few other acupuncture therapists, but they were no different than the regular docs around here - not interested in actually improving anyone's health - at least not on purpose!!! rolleyes

So I'm really looking forward to gaining a much better quality of life & just had to share!!! yeah

Thanks Deejavu!!!
I'm pretty excited as I thought I would never find another acupuncture therapist that was interested in actually helping people regain their health!!! :)

Traveler,

That great news:) It's sad to say that we have to basically diagnose ourselves. I knew I had Hashi's two years before I was finally diagnosed with it. The many dcotors I saw would not test me for it, for whatever reason, even with all the symptoms I was having. They waited until my throid was really swollen with MANY nodules before they finally did an ultrasound. I have no clue what's going on with healthcare today but it's definitely no a great ride.
 
P.S.- the doctor's here wait until your organs are basically shutting down befofe they give you treatment for Adrenal problems. I was also tested the same way that you were. You can buy a saliva test from a lab in your area and have a doctor read it for you...that's if they believe in the saliva test to be accurate.
