Three years ago I came down with Lyme's symptoms. I was misdiagnosed for a year and was also told I had MS. I tested negative on the Western blot but then positive on the Lyme Urine Antigen. I finally got rid of the Lyme's from oral antibiotics, but then was re-bitten a year later. Once again I was positive on the Urine Antigen and went on antibiotics. My doctor recently tested me with the new blood test that recently came out and event though I still feel sick, I tested negative on the test. She doesn't want to test me with the urine test as she says it is now outdated. But I still feel sick and wonder why I was negative. Is this test accurate? Could I still have symptoms for awhile? Did I maybe never have Lyme's and the Urine Antigen was wrong? Please help.
