I have several autoimmune conditions (Reynauds, Hashimotos, celiac) and just started studying lyme disease online and think this may be it. From what I have been reading it is important to get a LLMD. I wonder first of all, should I see my primary dr and have her run a test for Lyme or would it be a better use of my time to start first with a LLMD who will run more than the basic test. I was put on doxy a year 1/2 ago for my rosacea and ended up with the side effect of "lupus like symtoms". Now I am starting to wonder about that too. It would be great to finally put all the puzzle pieces together and solve this puzzle once and for all. My grandparents lived in eastern Pa. My grandpa died from ALS and my grandma had Bell's palsy and alzheimers. Never saw the connection before now. Thanks in advance for your help. I am in southwestern Michigan near South Bend, In.
