How does one know what stage of Lyme they are in?

I just got diagnosed with (probable) Lyme a few days ago. I had the "first test" which I assume is the IgG and IgM test. I am awaiting the Wesern Blot results for confirmation. I would like to know how long I have had it. Here are my symptoms.

I had a small, red, somewhat itchy rash on my neck which started about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Last Tuesday it got redder and itchier and warm and puffy and my neck got stiff up to my ear. I had trouble opening my mouth all the way. I went to the ER and the NP told me she thought it is Lyme. I have been on docycycline for 4 days.

I have no joint or neurological symptoms.

I never saw a tick and I'm careful about it.

Any ideas?
