I am new in this forum and I am desperately seeking answers to my husbands sudden multi systemic symptoms that he has been experiencing since March of this year. His doctor had rested him for a multitude of things and they haven’t been able to put this together. Through our own research and my husbands background we believe that at some point he may have been exposed. We live in the Houston area and have done a lot of research on doctors specializing in Lyme but haven’t been able to get anywhere. We only know of one doctor located in Denton, TX. If you guys have anyone that you would recommend in the Houston, Austin, San Antonio area please let me know. I would greatly appreciate any recommendations. Thank you.
Hi OMC - welcome!
Sorry your husband has been symptomatic with no answers. Unfortunately that is a familiar story for those of us with Lyme disease.
Hopefully you will get recommendations from members here. If not...you can email me and I'll give you some names I have listed for the area you are seeking treatment.
Has your husband been tested for Lyme disease? If not, you could get him tested with Igenex - the Lyme WB IgM and IgG is $250. It takes three weeks for the results.
So, it's possible he can take the results to the first LLMD appt.
Igenex also has newer testing - IGXSpot and Lyme Immunoblot.
To get the test kit, just give them a call... you can ask them about
doing the IGXSpot and Immunoblot vs the WB for lyme.
I wouldn't at this time test for the coinfections...unless you want to spend the extra $$.https://igenex.com
