Lyme is diagnosed primarily by clinical symptoms. Many people who have lyme test negative. It is imperative that you see a lyme specialist, an LLMD, and test at the proper lyme lab, Igenex Lab in Palo Alto CA. Read the sticky at the top of this board titled "lymie newbies" for further information. If you have lyme disease and were recently infected, time is of the essence! The sooner you start treatment the better.

Best,
