Hello everyone,

Long story short, I believe I have been infected with Bartonella and possibly Lyme for about 20 years undiagnosed. I finally ran into a forum post talking about the scratch marks I've researched for years and for the first time someone suggested Bartonella.

I can't help but be worried about the length of time I've had this. It explains so much of what I've been seeing over the years. Everyone would write off the scratches as anxiety, bone pain as growing pains when I was young, rashes as dermatitis, cysts as harmless. At this point I'm experiencing psychological symptoms.Does anyone have any recommendations for a doctor in or around MN that is not opposed to a holistic approach?

I live in Minnesota and have Lyme. There is a LLMD in Winona who I have been to. I currently go to a holistic chiropractor in Luck, Wisconsin.

Hi Toshter, welcome to our community.

I'm sorry you have had undiagnosed Bartonella for 20 years....but I am glad you found us here.

I do have some names of LLMD's in Minnesota. Send me an email and I will look through them and send you some options. I do have a few of ND's listed as well.


We do encourage all new members read through the information contained in the thread: "New To Lyme?..Start Here" It's packed full of useful information.

Thanks for the welcoming, I'll jump in and read that thread. Zaidenorian, I hope you're making some progress. As much as it scares me, it's also a relief to finally have an idea of what this might be.

Girlie, I'll send you a message, thank you!

Hi Toshter
I too was misdiagnosed 26 years ago and have like had Lyme for 50 years. I was properly diagnosed last June and I waited four months to get into my LLMD in Oshkosh, Wi. He is both Western medicine and holistic. So far I feel very fortunate to have found this facility and to be receiving the care I am getting. I interviewed two and that area and found the intake form for this doctor to be the most comprehensive.He has treated many people from MN and WI and as far west as CA.
I’m not sure how I would go about giving you the details but if you’re interested let me know.
Best wishes!
