Went to see Dr. Smith after being diagnosed with Lyme by my PCP. I guess Dr. Smith is the top Lyme expert for the state of Maine. He seems to listen and has a good bedside manner; however, I left feeling really confused about my diagnosis. He diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia after running just a few labs. It is my understanding that Fibromyalgia is a "rule out" diagnosis, meaning that you need to rule out many other connective tissue diseases that have clear supporting labs and symptoms before you give a patient this diagnosis. His treatment plan consisted of suggesting that I lose weight (my BMI is barely overweight), meditate, and take Ibuprofen. All helpful suggestions, but I was left in more pain than a few Ibuprofen can treat. Since seeing Dr. Smith, a second doctor, in addition to my PCP, has diagnosed me with Chronic Lyme. I get the impression that Dr. Smith is not compliant with The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) standards. Not very thorough in my opinion.
