A Lyme disease specialist may have a hard time understanding your symptoms, but he or she can help with treatments.
Here are some things to consider.
article Alexis Johnson has had Lyme disease for more than 25 years, and she has had many different doctors and specialists.
Alexisson was diagnosed with Lyme disease in the early 1990s, when she was only 14.
Now, she is 67 years old and living in Maine with her husband, Michael, and their four daughters.
“I was very skeptical of Lyme disease,” says Alexissa, who is also a certified Lyme disease physician.
“The doctor at the time did not seem to be very good.
He just said it was a harmless thing, and I thought that was really strange.”
Alexys Lyme diagnosis wasn’t the only time her Lyme diagnosis was met with skepticism.
A year earlier, she had undergone a diagnostic test to determine if she had Lyme arthritis.
“My Lyme diagnosis, in my opinion, was a mistake,” says Arias Lyme doctor, James Jones.
“Because he did not get the right information from the Lyme disease lab, he made a diagnosis of a benign, non-inflammatory infection.”
“He did not give the right kind of information, and that’s when I was left wondering what was going on,” says John Smith, a Lyme disease doctor.
“It’s been a very, very hard couple of years for me.”
A few years ago, Johnson became an advocate for Lyme disease awareness.
Johnson’s Lyme disease diagnosis has been used by others to argue against Lyme testing, even as it has not been proven to be a true diagnosis.
The American Lyme Association, the Lyme Disease Foundation, and the Lyme Doctors Association all have their own Lyme testing programs.
“Linda [Johnson]’s experience with Lyme arthritis and the fact that she got Lyme disease and it was diagnosed as benign is very, well-known,” says Dr. James Jones, a neurologist and Lyme disease expert.
“And the Lyme doctors and Lyme patients in general have had a hard life trying to educate themselves and find out if there is a treatment for Lyme.”
The American Academy of Neurology has recommended that people with Lyme symptoms seek help from a Lyme doctor or a Lyme specialist.
In addition to testing, doctors and health care providers can treat Lyme symptoms with medications such as antibiotics.
“When I saw that it was really difficult for my Lyme disease to be treated, I said to myself, ‘This is not right.
There is no way that I should be using the diagnosis that is based on a false diagnosis,'” says Johnson.
“Now, I have Lyme disease myself, and it’s very easy to treat it.”
The following is a list of some of the things you can do to help your health and the quality of your life if you are diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease: Seek treatment for a specific illness.
Lyme disease is often referred to as chronic Lyme.
If you have a chronic condition like asthma, heart disease, arthritis, or diabetes, it’s not uncommon for the symptoms to be similar.
“In general, the main symptom of Lyme is fatigue,” says Johnsson.
When you have symptoms of fatigue, the symptoms tend to get worse.
If the symptoms become severe, doctors say you may need to have your symptoms monitored to make sure they aren’t affecting your quality of life.
Treatment options are limited.
“There are very few treatments for chronic Lyme, because the only ones that work are those that are highly aggressive,” says Jones.
Doctors can recommend a specific treatment plan to help manage your symptoms.
You may also be able to take a Lyme medication or get a course of antibiotics that will help you manage your condition.
If your symptoms are mild, a doctor may prescribe you a course, and you may have the option to take it every other day.
“If you do not have symptoms, and your symptoms seem to resolve over time, I would recommend that you consider taking a Lyme drug and getting a course every day,” says Smith.
If these options do not work for you, your doctor may suggest getting an antibiotic.
Some medications can help alleviate symptoms, such as a corticosteroid or antibiotics, while others may increase symptoms.
Treatment may take a while to work, and even if it does work, it may take months for your symptoms to resolve.
The longer it takes, the more serious your symptoms become.
A Lyme doctor may also recommend you see a specialist for a more in-depth evaluation of your symptoms and the extent of your problems.
Treatment for chronic infections can be difficult.
“Some chronic infections, like Lyme, are more difficult to treat than other types of infections,” says Anderson.
“But, in general, chronic infections are not as difficult to manage as other types.”
A lot of people are able to live with chronic infections that are mild or moderate.
This may make it difficult to get a diagnosis and to get treatment.
“A lot of the time, it just
