Tests for Lyme are so unreliable that some believe only a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor has the knowledge and the experience to diagnose Lyme...in other words the diagnosis is based on symptoms, not on tests.
Many people who have tested "negative" for Lyme have their symptoms disappear when they are treated for Lyme.
