Hi Lynn,

Welcome to the forum! I wish you all the best in finding the help you need and also, wishing you a speedy return to good health. I am sorry for your suffering.

This is a great forum and there is a lot of knowledge to be gained by reading/talking here. If you get the chance, read the topic at the top of the first page, entitled "New to lyme, Start Here". It has helpful info.

Best wishes to you, bablymers mom

Lynn, if you email me I will send you a couple of links to websites that give LLMD referrals. Are you close to MD by any chance? There's a great LLMD in Germantown, MD.

I'm curious, since you've not yet been to an LLMD, how do you know you have lyme disease?

After months of being sick and tested for almost everything else,my former PCP did a lyme titer and western blot...
it was positive,and even after antibiotic treatment (which came way to late) my titer still remains at 3.64

ive just about given upon doctors,but my heath is starting to really get in the way with work and taking care of my 2 children..i need help.just not sure where to turnat this point...

Lynda,

Thanks for explaining to me how you found you had lyme disease. Pretty rare when a PCP does a Western Blot and diagnosis someone with lyme disease. Now that you know this you obviously know you need a qualified LLMD to treat you.

Like I said, if you email me I'll be glad to send you some information that will help you to find an LLMD in your area. Are you near Germantown, MD? There's a good LLMD located there that many people speak highly of.
