Hi & welcome Violetablue!!
I am so sorry that you have a need to be here, but I am sure glad you found us!
If you haven't already, it would be beneficial 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 relevant information and informative links that have been put together by our members here! We also have a pretty good search function on this forum to help you narrow down your search for information from past posts.
We don't give out Dr's names - usually only applies to LLMD's though - but I wanted to give you the head's up on that one.
For information on finding a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, please email our long time member, Dan's Mother at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also email Stephanie at: email@example.com
You can also go to: www.turnthecorner.org/bod.htm if you want to learn a little bit more about
You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link: www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) doctor. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html
I hope this helps out both of you!!! If not, please let us know and we can see if we can help out a bit more!
