It's not uncommon to test negative for Lyme, despite the amount of time one has been infected (that's my understanding). The criteria the CDC uses for a "positive" diagnosis disregards some important Lyme markers that many of us have. If you suspect you have Lyme, the most important thing you can do is find a good Lyme Literate Medical doctor. Just like the rest of the medical field, there are good ones and bad ones, so choose carefully. I went onto several different Lyme forums for referrals. I started out diagnosed with MS, but ended up with Lyme. I still test negaative, so you have to trust your instincts. I know when you're sick that's a lot harder to do, but unfortunately, we are left with few options. I hope you find the answers you're looking for!
