Given the controversy surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease, it may be difficult to find a doctor willing to treat you.  Many patients are forced to travel at great expense to the U.S.A. for treatment.  Learn as much as you can about Lyme disease.  If your doctor is unaware of the symptoms, suggest they visit the CanLyme site for more information.  There are numerous Provincial and Federal websites dedicated to Lyme Education as well as countless blogs and chat rooms.
