I got bit with a tick that was positive for lymes 18 days ago and I'm not happy with my current Lyme care. I have other health conditions/medications that affect my immune system. I asked my PCP to treat it aggressively and all I got was a script
for 10 days of Doxycycline. She won't budget on the script
either until I go for a blood test at the 6 week mark and test positive.
I've been starting to feel the effects of what I think are Lymes, exhaustion and achy joints.
I'm in the mid-hudson valley NY, Orange County, Ulster, Dutchess, Putnam or Sullivan Counties would be preferable. Please email with a recommendation if you know of a good LLMD in the area. I'd like one that accepts insurance, especially since I reached my deductible for the year
. I've already spent enough out of pocket this year.
I am willing to take antibiotics, it's probably my preference. I'm currently on Augmentin for Crohns/UC.
Thank you in advance for your help and reading this post.
