Hi all! So I just took a step in the right direction, and although it may seem like a baby step I'm pretty excited about it! Within 200 miles of my home there is one LLMD and to book an appt you have to give their office a $200 down payment to hold the appt. When I told them I was already on oral ABX treatment they offered me a free 30 minute consultation over the phone to see if the Dr. would be a good fit for me. So...this is where all of you wonderful lyme educated people come in. Is there any specific questions that maybe you wish you would of asked but just didnt know enough to ask? I know this 30 minutes will go super quick so I want to be very prepared and organized. I think, after doing quite a bit of research, I may have one or more co infections. It's hard to diagnose myself ( duh ) but I deff have neuro symptoms ( dizziness, twitching/blurry eyes, brain fog ) as well as some Cardio symptoms ( chest pain, racing heartbeat, real bad air hunger ) and then theres the hard time sleeping. I can sleep, but I wake up ALOT. And the constant anxiety which I really think is brought on by the racing heartbeat and air hunger. Anyways I'm totally rambling. I am going to discuss these symptoms as well as my day to day lifestyle (like detox baths. I dont know WHEN I could do those. I cant even pee without my 2 year old coming in or screaming at the door. I dont see anyway I could take a bath without her) and the medication I am currently on. I guess my biggest goal is to get to a point where I am Hopefully healthy enough to have another child. Thats what I really really REALLY want. So any input after my rambling would be greatly appreciated. I am the QUEEN of thinking of 101 things I should of asked as soon as I leave the Dr. Good thing I have a couple weeks to think and write a list! Thanks for any advice and have a wonderful day!

LOL Gracelynn!! If you're the Queen, then I'm the Princess of remembering things just a moment too late to ask!

yeah CONGRATULATIONS!!! turn on getting your appt!! Woo hoo!! Almost worth a happy dance, don't you think?? smilewinkgrin

I would say that it sounds like you have a pretty good plan, although we do have a list of 'questions to ask your LLMD' some of the older members helped put together that an be found on page 2 of our 'New to Lyme?' thread.

As far as the detox soaks, why not do a foot soak instead? You can sneak these in when your sweet little 2 yr old is sleeping or even just during story time or something. For several reasons I don't use the full bath detoxing, but I do use the foot soaks very frequently and they really help too!

If you still have questions about your questions (LOL! turn Couldn't resist - sorry!), please don't hesitate to get some more suggestions!
