Searching for an MD or ND in Canada to work with my LLMD in the US…

I thought I had more time for this, as my original appointment was not until September.  Luckily there was a cancellation and I will be going at the end of the month.  The only problem with that is the fact that I need either an ND or MD here who is willing to work with my doctor in the US….not an easy feat I tell you.  My family doctor is clearly not an option…so my search continues today.

I need this doctor to be willing to:

-Write prescriptions that have to be re written by a Canadian doctor in order to fill in Canada.
-Requisition monthly blood tests to monitor my system
-Supply my US doctor with the blood test results via email

-Communicate with my US doctor to work together to provide the right treatment course

Now, you would think this would be a piece of cake.  Think again.  Most doctors hear “lyme” and don’t even listen to another word you say after the fact.  So I have an appointment with an MD today for a 15 minute consult to see if she might be willing to be this person for me.  I still have a lot of testing that needs to be completed prior to my appointment.

I’ll let you know how it goes…

Oh and a special thank you to my Mom who is actually the one who is helping me with most of this paperwork and searching, seeing I am so unwell and most of the time I just want to give up!  Support from family and loved ones is HUGE! ❤

  2. So this was a waste of time… this doctor pretty much gave me a 15 minute diagnosis of her own…Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Funny-considering she didn’t even listen to my symptoms.
    Anyways…on to the next one I guess. I hate seeing these people that just make me feel like I am crazy and that there is nothing wrong with me. 😦
    I see another ND tomorrow who is able to write prescriptions etc…fingers crossed for better luck!

  3. Great idea. I bet it helps to share it out loud! My 18yo daughter suffers as well (well we’re awaiting results and an appointment) but I can’t imagine her not having it with all of her symptoms and all I’ve read. it’s highly likely my 16yo as well. Take care!
