Hi SherBeau and welcome. So sorry you suspect that you have lyme and had to find us. As you go the New To Lyme.... Start Here! thread will make more and more sense.
Right now, since you are new, it is a mountain of information and tiring to read. But, it is a valuable resource of information that you will use over and over.
In order for other posters to email you referrals to a lyme literate medical doctor (LLMD) you will need to enable your email. We do not allow doctors names to be posted on this website in order to protect our doctors that are treating us. There are some states that think doctors treat us for too long. We don't want them to get in trouble because they are helping us. In order to enable your email:
Go to My Profile
Go to Edit Profile
Enter your email address

You can 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
ILADS has their own referral system as well:ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/
