I was just diagnosed two weeks ago after suffering for many years and finished two weeks of Doxy. My primary doc said he would call me this week. I have no idea what my next step will be, most every bone and muscle in my body hurts at this point, my thoughts are jumbled and my memory is terrible. I can only sleep a few hours at a time and have constant fatigue. Guess I'm just looking for first step suggestions, would greatly appreciate your advice. Thanks

We do encourage our new members to read through the information contained in the "New to Lyme?..Start Here!" thread.
If you need help finding a LL Dr. - start a new thread: "Looking for LLMD in/near_________" and fill in the blank with your
If you're not wanting to do antibiotic treatment....and want to give it a go with herbals...change the LLMD to LLND.

You can also email me - I have a list of LLMD's - and may have some for your
