, I am working on a plan similar to yours -- getting some lyme caused issues treated so I'll at least feel better in the meantime, and at least be able to work up an attitude that can help me fight. So w/o an LLMD, so you believe an rheum is the best option when one does not have an LLMD? I was thinking of just an endo or an internist, to treat my thryroid and adrenals, hoping I might then feel well enough to try to tackle lyme.
For example, would a Rheum attempt to treat Hashimotos?
Stutter, I would sure like to get my hands on some abx again. Tho I suffered mentally/emotionally horribly on heavy doses of Amox, I ended up w/ some relief in the end. It just didn't last. Abx may not be all that bad, depending on the person. So far, knock on wood, my body has always responded favorably to abx. I just didn't get to take them long enough. I'd really like to find a Dr willing to 'pulse' them. If I felt better after 2 months, then I'd like to stop for a month, then hit it again for 2 months, etc. I really have this feeling that I could kick lyme this way. Probably not so for the Babs. But maybe, just maybe, if strong enough, I could battle the Babs on my own.
