Hi Msljudy,
Welcome to the community!

I​f ​you haven't ​yet​,​​​​ 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, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more.​​ ​​​​And, here's another good place to find helpful detoxing rout​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ines​​:​​​​​​ ​​www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html​


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​For information on finding a​n 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 an email to either Girlie or myself by clicking on one of our screen names or the small blue envelope under the screen name. I may 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 in and I will see how close I can get to your location.​

​​​​​​​​You can start a new thread titled something like "Looking for LLMD in the ​​(insert the nearest larger city & state)​​ ​​area". Members can email you about the LLMD's that they see in that area if you have your email enabled. We don't allow doctors names to be posted though.

​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Y​​ou 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​

​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Y​​ou can email ​​​​the​​ ​​​​​​Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at​: medicalinfo@tbdalliance.org
​​

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


​ ​
And www.LymeDoc.org

You will want to find an ILADS trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) as well as many others, believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme. Go to the ILADS site to read the new (2014) Treatment guidelines to get you started on your healing journey: www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

Im not sure about Oklahoma but I have some for Texas. Email me if you would like their information. You can also go to facebook and Texas Lyme Support Group and check for llmd's closer to the border of your state.
