There once was a very busy LLMD (Lyme Literate M.D.) on Long Island but he has since retired to go into research. His first name starts with a "B" and he is one of the most versed physicians in regards to Lyme.
There is an excellent LLMD in CT who's last name starts with "P" and he specializes in ALS/MS and Lyme. I am paranoid enough at this point to not share names of LLMD's online but if you dig a bit deeper you will find him.
Please do not give up. I was on the road to a MS diagnosis and then was tested through IgeneX labs and found I had lyme, babesia and ehrlichia...which I was then treated for and I am much better.
Continue your journey, get proper antibiotic treatment and then re-access. I will say a prayer for you and hope that your Primary Progressive MS is actually treatable tick borne illness, you would not be the first...
Hi Mike.. Sorry your going through this.. I also live on Long Island.. and I was also told in the beginning I had MS, although none of my test pointed to MS.. As far as I know there are no LLMD's on the island.. there are a few doctors who will say they specialize in lyme but I have never gone to them.. I see a LLMD in Manhattan.. He is great and treats alot of people on this board.. His name is Dr. Raxlen..You can do a search and see if you like any of the info you see on him.. He is one of the best.. let me know if you have any other questions
