Would it be wise to go and see an allergy/immunologist? I would like to know if anything besides the LD is going on like viruses, food  sensativities etc..... I'm worried that she will run some LD tests and try to say that I don't have LD. That's when I will go off on her!!!!!! nono Just kidding. smilewinkgrin   But seriously...... I get so tired of stupid doctors that think they know everything!!! She is highly recomended by someone I know.... but i'm scared. It's 2 1/2 hours away and I will probably be making several trips. I have not had any bloodwork in several months because I was being treated by a natural doctor, maybe this is a good idea. What do you think? confused

I think it is a very good idea to be tested for viruses. I know I have CMV, EBV and HHV6 & 7.

Some LLMD's think these will go back into remission once Lyme has been treated, and others feel you need to treat them as well.

I am now into my 2nd month treating the viruses, that is after 2+ years treating Lyme and Babs.

You can have die-off just like with Lyme and feel really poopy!

I'd go if I were you. But I also wouldn't say anything about Lyme. Just describe symptoms that are relevant to allergies (rashes other than bullseye, sinus symptoms, symptoms triggered by certain foods or contact with certain substances, symptoms that seem to appear during a certain time/season of the year, etc.) and viral infections in general (respiratory symptoms, for example).

Good luck,
Chronic Lyme Disease, Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, chronic Lymphopenia, intermittant pancytopenia, chronic malabsorption/malnutrition, etc.; G-Tube; Currently TPN-dependent.
Meds:  Pulmicort, IV Ceftazidime, Heparin (to flush PICC line), Claritin, Domperidone, Colloidal Silver (used topically), probiotics, homeopathy.

1bitten, I think your right. I'm going at least once to see what she can come up with. Poor thing is going to be exhausted when she gets finished with me. lol

Razzle! Hey! How are you these days? Thanks for your opinion.
