Welcome to our community!
If you haven't already, it would be helpful 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 important information, symptom lists (as Lyme rarely occurs by itself), helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, a list of questions that you can ask any doctor that you are seeking treatment from, and so much more.
Be sure to ask your current NP about treatment for Lyme disease since you tested positive and are experiencing symptoms - maybe she wanted to wait for this next visit before discussing treatment options with you?
If you find out that your NP isn't Lyme literate though, don't wait, find a doctor that has been educated by ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) so that they can treat you effectively. I do have the name of an NP in Portland, and one in Tigard. If you will send me an email, I'll be happy to share that information with you.
