  1. I can’t get help, my pain is way more than I can handle .. and [I am] not getting help from Drs. They just keep sending me one Dr to the next. Two rounds of meds not helping.

    1. Anita, we are very sorry to hear of your suffering. Lyme can be a pernicious and befuddling illness. Our best suggestion if you suspect Lyme, would be to consult a physician well versed in Lyme and tick-borne diseases. ILADS has a geographic physician directory that can help you find someone knowledgeable in your area. We wish you the very best of health and treatment and hope you find some respite soon!
