Does anyone know of an LLMD in Tennesee? If not, in one of the surrounding states?

I don't understand why Tennessee doctors keep telling me that there is no lyme disease in Tennessee?

hi rebecca lynn, I'm new to this kind of communcication. Ihope this info helps. I live in Tennessee and I have lyme and coinfections(babesia, erhlichia, bartonella) plus I had two viruses as a result of compromised immune syste. I was misdiagnosed for the last 10 years. My doctors dismissed my symptoms and referred me to a psychiatrist. You can just imagine my frustration. Just when I was feeling pretty helpless, fate matched us to a doctor in Atlanta ,GA. He is an MD who has an alternative clinic. He has treated hundreds of lyme disease patients with great success. I am one of the successes. It took about 8 months to begin to reclaim my life, but it was worth it! I am feeling so much better! I have discontinued all of my prescription medicine including pain pills! It may seem a little awkward to take the alternative route, but I read a lot of books and I did a lot of research on the internet and found that conventional medicine did not have the success rate that I was looking for.(I also did not want to risk infection with an IV antibiotic...our bodies are infected enough.. I'm sure you can identify.) My husband and I made the 3.5 hour trip many times over the summer and it was worth it! Good luck and good health. If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them. sincerely, lymie(I did not know of a good username, I may change it in the future).Smile

lymie - I am looking for someone to confirm if i have LD or not. I thought that a LLMD would be best suited to do this. I live in Tennessee and would love to know any suggestions of doctors to see here - or if I had to in Atlanta - like you went to. You can also email me at kevster622@juno.com. Thanks so much! - Kev
