Re: LLMD In Ga. Or Tenn.????????

Good Morning,

I live in GA and I see an infectious disease doc in Alpharetta his name is Dr. P. He is very up on Lyme and is very open minded. I had a picc line in for 4 months and i am feeling much better. Still being treatd with orals but am on a little break because my liver enzymes were so high.

He is treating a lot of Dr. Jemseks patience as well. He aslo helps a few kids that Dr. Jones originally dignosed and Dr. P is doing the actual treatment and follow up with them. He is very well respected in the medical community here.

I know that a lot of people do not like the ID doctor's but he has been a life saver for me. I am actually back to working from 10-4 five days a week!

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!

Thanks,
Onmyway

Hi onmyway. I am glad you are feeling better!

I think that the majority of infectious disease doctors are not Lyme knowledgeable, but there are few who are Lyme doctors.

Does this doctor test for all the co-infections?

Lyme disease can cause elevated liver enzymes. If your liver is healthy, taking the supplement Milk Thistle can help. You may want to ask your doctor about this.

Re: LLMD In Ga. Or Tenn.????????

Hello Ticker,

I am currently on Milk Thistle and that is what has brought the liver enzymes down. I got lazy and stopped taking them when I ewas pulsing my antibiotics and they went up! I was really my own fault. When I was on the IV antibiotics I toook it religiously and never had a problem!

As far as the co-infections. I Have not been tested for them. I could not afford to the hole kit & caboodle through Igenex. Do you recommend the regular labs like Quest or ******* for those? Or are they not reliable.

I am currently having some really bad right sided head, neck and shoulder pain. My lymph nodes on the right side only are all enlarged and I have a muscle in the neck that is in spasm permananetly! I am going in for a CT Scan Wednesday to see what is going on. The entire right side if my face hurst all the time. It is really weird how a lot of my symptoms are one sided! My eye also swells closed a lot and the eye socket hurts. These are fairly new symptoms.

Like I said I am definatley better than I was. I can function day to day but I take Vicoprofen three times a day, Lyrica for nerve pain. and Soma for the muscle issues. Of course the Lyrica and Soma are taken whe I get home form work! It is never ending as we all know.

Thanks,
Onmyway

Re: LLMD In Ga. Or Tenn.????????

Hi onmyway. I am sorry you are having so much pain. I know it is draining. It is good you are having a CT scan.

In my opinion, Quest is not a good lab for co-infection testing. I think IgeneX is the best lab for these tests. I know they are expensive.

Bartonella can cause swollen lymph nodes, but I think Lyme can also.

Milk Thistle really does help. Hopefully once you start taking it regularly, your enzymes will be fine.

Hang in there okay? Good luck on Wednesday!

Tears,

I still never heard anything back from the Georgia Lyme Disease Association. All they said that is that there is a LLMD in Atlanta. I tried calling and emailing to ask for his name but they never responded. Sorry.

Onmyway,

I am surprised you mention the Doctor's name in your post.. all Lyme communities/boards usually advise members to NEVER publicly discuss LLMD's names.. simply because so many of them had to face trouble by their medical boards.. would you mind editing your post and rather pass on names of LLMDs you know via private message?!

There's not a whole lot of LLMDs around anyways, so please let's not endanger their work by getting their names out into the public and have them face consequences..

Thank you!

Hi LymoGirl, welcome to the board!

Do you have Lyme? How are you doing?

Can we do private e-mail on this board? I did not think we could. Would love to be able to.

If there's a way to do it, I haven't figured it out yet.

Re: LLMD In Ga. Or Tenn.????????

Hey Tears,

Did you get an appointment with Dr. P I go to him and he has been wonderful.

I know he has quite a few Lyme patience here in GA. Every week his nurses tell me how many more cases they kept getting in. It is really scary.

I have been going to him for a year. We are unfortunately at a rought spot right now but this too shall pass!

I hope all goes well!

Thanks,
Onmyway

Hi Lymogirl,

I edited my post but I was not aware of that on this particular board.

Alos if you take notice Keylime was given his name the LDA of Gerogia and she posted it as well!

I definatley understand where you are coming form. Do you see him as well? I noticed you are from ATL.
