Hi Laura, welcome to this forum.
To start, please read the thread at the top of the page, "New to Lyme?...Start Here" . It has a lot of important, helpful information, including the section in detoxing.
To find a LLMD, start a new thread with the subject: "Looking for LLMD near Atlanta"
Steroids are a no-no for lyme disease patients, as they suppress the immune system which allows the lyme to flourish.
You have symptoms that definitely could be attributed to lyme disease.
While you are waiting to schedule an appt. with a LLMD, you could get an Igenex Lyme Western Blot test. It costs $200.
Good luck, and keep posting on this forum...lots of support here!
