My wife might have Lyme need a good LLD to diagnose?

My wife has had a daily headache for over 3 years now. It started off with her fainting and waking up with the headache. She also developed hypoglycemia at the same time.

Right before that happened she had been sick for a few days (we thought it was sunburn) and had also received a crazy insect bite a few weeks prior. She initially went to the ER where they checked her for meningitis which turned out negative. She also received a standard blood test for Lyme (not sure which one till we talk to her Dr. about it tomorrow since it's been 3yrs).

In the last 3yrs she has been to the ER for her headache roughly 20 different times and admitted into the hospital 4 different times for at least a week each time to try and break the headache cycle.

She is currently a patient at the Diamond Headache clinic in Chicago were she has basically been a guinea pig for the last 2+ years.

We found a few other people that had similar situations online that looks like they all turned out to actually have Lyme. I want to make sure we get her properly diagnosed. Where should we start? Our family practice Dr. is a great Dr. He seems very open to patient input (he is younger and incredibly intelligent) should we start there or is there another option? We are in Northern Indiana about 2hrs from Chicago and 3hrs from Indianapolis.

Thanks so much for any help.
