Hi, Dowa, and welcome to the fibromyalgia forum! Many have been diagnosed with fibro and it turned out they had Lyme AND many have been diagnosed with Lyme and it turned out they had fibro AND many have both. Fibromyalgia, Lyme, MS, etc. have similar symptoms. On the Fibro 101 thread there is a link to What Else Could It Be and you will see the confusion.
I know about the false positive/negative blood work with Lyme. I also know there is a lab, I think it's called Igenx, and it's out in California and they are the most accurate lab to diagnose or rule out Lyme. If you've been on our Lyme forum, I'm sure you've read about that. I think I'd try that. Also, if there is a Lyme Literate doctor close by, I'd check with them, too. You can get much sicker if you have Lyme. So, you really want to get that ruled out. If you have Lyme and especially if you see a Lyme Literate doctor, they can help you a lot. Let us know what you do!
Meanwhile, ask questions. We really care about you here and want to help you as much as possible. I'm so glad you joined in and I hope to hear more from you soon.
