I am not a doctor and am summarizing information that is publicly available. I am not intending to provide medical advice. Lyme testing is complex and there seems to be a lot of misinformation out there so I hope this is helpful: Many are probably aware that the Western Blot is an imperfect test, and can be used to correlate Lyme along with clinical symptoms by an LLMD but should not be used as a stand alone to rule in or out Lyme. The severely outdated CDC surveillance guidelines include bands that cross react with other bacteria, and exclude bands that are specific to Lyme. Pamela Weint
