I hesitate to post this link because I have not been to Dr. Jemsek. Although he is in SC, as I read his web site it seems like he may be willing to work with and provide consultation to a doctor in your local area for follow-up visits. You would likely have to do some visits to SC, but not all of them. Fortunately for me, my Lyme has not progressed to the chronic stage, as it appears your unfortunate husband's disease may have progressed that far. Dr. Jemsek's web site says that he specializes in Chronic Lyme Disease. Unfortunately, I noted that his fee schedule seems quite high and he is not in-network for any health insurance. If you decide to use this doctor, it might be a significant help to others if you would post your husbands level of recovery as it progresses and how willing this doctor actually is in working with other doctors. Here is the web site: [url][/url]

Thanks and best wishes for a positive outcome.
I've been doing some research and Dr Sam D. recommends the use of high dose (1500mg/day) of oral tetracycline, for the treatment of chronic Lyme disease, and you can find the abstract on [url][/url] by searching for "tetracycline therapy for chronic lyme disease" or PMID: 9233665

Tetracycline is extremely inexpensive (2 months at 1500mg/daily is $30 cdn) and extremely safe. You may be able to print off the abstract and convince a local MD to treat your husband using his protocol, which is very simple: 1500mg/daily of tetracycline until the symptoms abate. DR D states that of 234 chronic lyme patients treated with tetracycline, 20% were cured, and 70% improved. This protocol has the advantage of extremely low cost, simplicity, and the use of a very non-controversial antibiotic.
