I think I'm going to see another LLMD. I've been having neurological problems and I don't think my current LLMD is experienced enough to treat me. I recently called the office and asked what he usually does for neurological problems with Lyme, beings as I just started having this after I started treatment. I was told I would probably be sent to a neurologist!?! That alarmed me because I live in the South and most doctors here do not know how to treat Lyme. Most don't even think it exists here. In my opinion, I would think that my current LLMD would know what to do. <sigh> Maybe this is a good thing. I don't know. I do know that I definitely do not want to leave my life in someones hands that doesn't know what they are doing. Sooo, I'm filling out paper work right now to see an LLMD in Florida. I've heard really good things about
him. I called and spoke to the secretary there and told her that I truly had to make sure he had dealt with patients with neurological symptoms from Lyme Disease especially since I would be driving 12 hours to get there. She advised me that he had been treating neurogical symptoms for decades and she stayed on the phone with me and calmly answered other questions. She was very sweet. I really feel good about
this. The only thing I'm worried about
is the long drive. I have to push myself to do it though! This is my life and I want it back!
I had to have a primary doctor work with my LLMD since he's so far away. Well, I found one to work with him!!! She is a great doctor. She's my husband and I's internist. Shesvery caring and
open minded. I know she will be there for me.
All I have to do now is send the paper work back and see if he accepts me as a patient. I also need
to call my insurance and make sure they still cover him. They did back in 2007. This is actually the
doctor I was going to go to the first time. I wish I would have.
Anyway, that's what I'm dealing with now. I need lots of prayers. My health has not been too good
lately. I'm glad I have this board and all of you:) You all give me something to look forward to everyday.
A special thanks to 1bitten for giving me all of the doctor's information. She has been there for me and has answered a ton of questions! Thanks hun!
Big hugs to everyone!
