A few choices.: You should start with your primary care doctor. They would be best to diagnose it if you haven't had it diagnosed yet, because if it's not lyme disease they will also help you determine what it is that's ailing you. If you've already been diagnosed then you can be treated by your primary doctor or an infectious disease specialist.
