Hi and welocme to our forum,
I am sorry your friend is suffering with symptoms. We do have a "New to Lyme start here thread. Its at the top of the page.
It has information on symptoms, testing and Lyme.
Has your friend been diagnosed with Lyme or co-infections, possibly bitten ( not everyone recalls being bitten or gets the bulls-eye).
are you comfortable sharing what some of the symptoms are?
If you would like to search for a Lyme literate MD ,You can email any of the moderators and we can check our list for your area.
You can also search at /www.lymedisease.org/find-lyme-literate-doctors/
Please tell your friend that they are not alone, we are here and understand.
There are many caring and helpful members here to help with questions and offer support when needed.
