Hi aliabb3 - welcome to the forum! I posted a new thread for LLMDS in Boston - so keep your eye on that. Also, make sure your email address is available so our members can send you personal recommendations.
I think you're on the right track - a lot of people get "tricked" into believing that if they're still sick after a short course of antibiotics, it must be something else, but all of us here know that lyme is a persistent bug!
You might also want to look through the "new to lyme" thread if you haven't already - there's a lot of great information there put together by our members to help understand lyme disease, as well as some suggestions for detoxing which can alleviate your symptoms both during treatment and in the meantime. Best of luck - we're here to help however we can!
