My biggest concern about LLMD's is that the 2 I went to were both previous presidents of ILADS, and the one said I didn't have lyme because of my test results I mentioned in the original post, and the other just didn't listen to me at all and just wanted to throw meds at me. Money isn't an issue for me, I just need someone that is good but also can have a conversation.
That's unfortunate that a past president of ILADS was basing diagnosis and treatment on a test result.
your symptoms? Did he say anything about
And the other one..well all I can say is we have bad Doctoring in every area of medicine...including Lyme Docs. Not knowing the specifics...I can't comment on whether your Dr. belongs in that group.Basically just called me when the results came in and said everything was negative and quickly rushed off the call :/ I feel like I'm just gonna be this way forever.You can get another LLMD - just start a new thread to look for one. Go to one that others' have found helpful.
Or if you prefer to go the herbal route....we can help with that.
