Welcome to our community. I'm so glad you found us.
If you haven't yet, please do read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread, as it's packed full of helpful information.
You need to be seeing an ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) trained Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD), 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.
For information on finding an ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) trained Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, 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 send me, July, or Girlie an email by clicking on my screen name or the small blue envelope under the screen name. We have contact information for some LLMD's in your area as well. Please include your state and area that you would like to find a LLMD.
You can email the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at
[url]email@example.com for LLMD referrals
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/
