First of all, I too am very sorry to hear about
your daughter. I would go nuts if it had been one of my kids instead of me that was so ill!! And thank you so very much for understanding that we are a bit protective of our docs!
There are a few ways to approach finding a LLMD in your area.
For information on finding a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, you can start a new thread titled something like:"Looking for LLMD/LLND in the _______ area." Although you will need to enable your email option in your profile in order to receive any recommendations, as we don't allow doctor's names and contact info to be posted on the forum for several reasons. You can enable your email option in your profile, under 'edit profile'. Be sure to click the submit button to actually save your preference.
You can email Stephanie at: email@example.com
You can also go to: www.turnthecorner.org/
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) trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme. 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 also have some listings in California as well. If you would like to email me (click on my name or the little blue envelope under my name), I'd be happy to share them!
No matter how you find a LLMD, I hope that your daughter has a smooth healing path!
