Bart tests are unreliable. Many strains are known but there are only tests for a few strains. By symptoms, I was dx'd with Bart despite Fry Labs tests coming back negative.
I've had the nasty foot pain. Then I got fitted properly in good walking shoes with heel and arch supporting shoe inserts and the pain has gone away. Whether Lyme or Bart caused this I will probably never know, but at least it no longer keeps me from being on my feet.
