whats up guys ive been stalking this forum for a cool year now and ill share a little bit about myself. Ive been in the US army for the past 4 years, ill be done on may 1st. So the reason im here is last april i went home to columbus georgia and went bow fishing with my friends on lake harding all through out the night (super fun) the trip went fine and then i came back to my duty station and a month later i had these BIZARRE symptoms. Brain fog, Cant read right, memory loss, lack of appetite (Yes for a year) Orange tongue ( one day of doxy took that away lol) odd back pain, FLOATERS IN MY EYES DRIVING ME INSANE, Heart palpitations (3rd month of doxy and they are gone) anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts you name it and many more. well as we all know military PAs in alaska are going to be like lyme disease? no way. well. i got them to test through labcorp and only IGM p41 was positive but at this point im 99.99999999999 percent sure i have lyme disease. oh and everything else i was tested for is normal. they think im a perfectly healthy guy even when i, a grown man, cried and begged the doctors at the emergency room to help me. Ha. So today i called the office of Dr.p in georgia, Yeah.. probably the one you've read about online though i won't name call, and the lady told me he doesn't treat lyme disease anymore... maybe i asked the wrong questions and they got suspicious but i need some kind of LLMD in georgia for when i get out. all my symptoms are now fatigue and neurological stuff. anybody got advice or Georgia LLMD for me? Im trying to go the antibiotics route.. preferably some IV rocephin or something.

Hi Jake, welcome to our community.

I'm glad you decided to post after stalking us for a whole

Lab corp isn't a good lab to test for lyme you can ignore that false result. Although many of us do have band 41 show up. It's not lyme specific, but it does mean it's a spirochete.

I do have some options listed in Georgia. Send me an email if you don't get some recommendations from members here.
(I don't have any experience with the ones on my list)

You can also contact ILADS for physician names in your area:

When you have time, take a look through the information contained in the thread: "New to Lyme?..Start Here!" It's packed full of useful information.

....not all LLMD's treat with IV antibiotics. So that is a question you might want to ask upfront.

Hi and welcome to our forum,
Sorry that you have Lyme. I remember there were a few members from Georgia a while ago, they may not be on today so be sure to keep checking back for responses.

Take care and I wish you the best of healing and soon!!!
