Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

thanks so much, is there any blood tests I should request or will he already know everything he has to do without me asking for it?

Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

Hi Marline this is great news! Who are you going to go see? Try to get your testing through Igenex...but remember even if it is negative your LLMD should go on symptoms....

hang in there!

Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

My appt is with Dr. S. H in Malibu, and because I am pregnant I got a very early appt. So even if it is negative, the doc can go off my symptoms and diagnose me?

Also what should I take with me?

Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

You're welcome. Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and LLMDs can diagnose and treat patients without aa positive test result since the tests for Lyme Disease aren't very reliable. I agree that you should have your bloodtest sent to the lab in California called IgeneX. I recommend that you ask about being tested for the co-infections.

Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

Aquatic, did your doctor test you for co-infections, if so when did your doc test for them? My doc wants to hold off to see how I do with treatment before I get tested for co-infections. What antiobiotic are you on? Are you seeing any improvement?

Later,
J

Re: I made my appt with the LLMD..

Hi! No, my doctor only tested me for Lyme Disease and said she would see how I respond to the Lyme treatment. If I don't improve, then she will test me for co-infections, like what your doctor said. I'm on an antibiotic called Biaxin and I am on my second month of it. I still am in pain, but I feel more awake and I have more energy. It is helping me.

Good luck!
