Hi Need info!
Welcome to our community!! I'm so very sorry for all that you've been through and that you are feeling so poorly!
You wouldn't be able to describe what any of your rashes look like could you? It might be helpful.
If you haven't already, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!"
, as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists (as it sounds like you could have Lyme as well), helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, and a list of questions that you can ask any doctor that you are seeking treatment from.
I do have one referral for a LLMD in Louisville, but there is only one that I know of. If you would like the contact info, please send me an email by clicking on either my screen name or the little blue envelope under my name. Please be sure to include your screen name and the area in which you are looking. Thank you!
Most doctors that haven't had special training don't have a clue as to how to properly treat these infections. One month of abx isn't enough. And as far as that doc telling you that long term abx are so very harmful, Dermatologist regularly prescribe high dose abx for those with acne - and acne doesn't kill or disable people. There are things you need to do in order to use high dose, long term abx, but we can help you learn!
