    I have an appointment with a LLMD in Atlanta to get tested in Mid July. I'm nervous but glad to finally get it done.

    Hi,

    Glad to hear that you will be seeing a LLMD soon.

    Just remember that testing is not real accurate, so you can still have tick borne diseases and have negative test results. Good LLMD's know that Lyme and other tick borne diseases are clinical diagnoses.

    The new Borrelia culture test is supposed to be more accurate.

    Here is some info about it:

    Good luck!
