Thanks. I've had the unpleasant experience of an ID who is not Lyme litterate. My primary refered me to this Lyme clinic but the doc is a rumatolagist. SureI have the stiff and painful joints but will a R also help with everything else? Or are we expected to find LL ENTS, Neuros, etc.. Thanks for your quick reply by the way! I also emailed turnthecorner.
If it was me, I would see what referrals I receive from ILADS, and turn the corner foundation. If I could schedule an appointment with a LLMD prior to the appointment with the Boston doctor I would see the LLMD and if your comfortable with him/her you could cancel your Boston appointment. If your LLMD appointment is after your Boston appointment I would go to the Boston appointment first and then be SURE to see the LLMD later. I hope I didn't confuse you :)
While you are waiting for your appointment please read as much as possible about
this disease. There is many places on the web to find the information you need. You could also go to your public library and look for Cure Unknown by Pamela Weintraub, or The Bakers dozen & the lunatic fringe by P.J. Langhoff both these books have a wealth of information.
Hope this helps
