"How can I get more help with Lymes disease?"

About: Southern General Hospital / General Medicine Vale of Leven General Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

Around five years ago I felt ill, with flu like symptoms. I had Lymes disease, but was not treated in time. I still suffer from terrible pain in my legs spine and joints, like most lyme suffers. I feel abandoned by NHS Scotland who know nothing about this illness. Help?
