Yes tests can be wrong many of us here can attest to that. A good LLMD will treat by symptoms not tests.
Last year at this time I had lost almost all of my hair now my head is full again. Last year at this time I was just finishing 3 months of IV. and recovering from a huge inflammatory reaction to some meds.
I have been on antibiotics in some form for 2 years now and the hair loss came only after I stopped and got worse, then I took plaquanil and got a stevens johnson reaction. It was pure hell but I have climbed slowly out of it and have huge improvements since then. If you need mepron and can't afford it perhaps you could afford malerone which is not as strong but better than nothing. I have treated babesia for 2 years now also nwhich I did actually test positive for. Now going after bart for the past 4 months which I did notbtest positive for but know I have it.
Ignoring this won't make it go away it will grow and get worse if it is lyme and it's buddies. You need to bite the bullet and go out of network and pay for a LLMD or you will be as sorry as I was to have wasted so much time. I would have remortaged my house to get better. It has cost thousands of out of pocket dollars and will continue to I am sure. blessings
