Oh, how very frustrating to say the least! And yes, it does take some time, and trial and error to find a good one. I always thought I had a "good" one until I had blood pressure issues, and all of the med side effects that come with that.
The medical community in the US acknowledges that we have a Lyme epidemic along the coastal areas in the NE (there is some thought that Lyme carriers fall off of migratory birds), and in some parts of the midwest...they also have documented cases of this disease in all 50 states in our union. Despite this, some of the best clinics/specialists in our country have the worst reputation for diagnosing and/or treating this disease
You live in a country that is still denying a problem even though evidence of Lyme exists there...keep that in mind when picking the brains of your medical team...if you can, do some independent research as it helps to go "armed" with sources of data to back up your case, should you think you have one.
Good luck, and good health!
