I'm sorry that you are going through this. I have some suggestions though. Sometimes when a person does not get better or feel any kind of change on antibiotics, there could be something else going on instead. The first thing I thought of, as you mentioned above, is co-infections. Even if the tests are inaccurate, if I were you, I'd still get tested for them. Use IgeneX to test for them. With my new doctor, and my old one, they gave me a symptom list to check off symptoms of different co-infections and tested me for the ones they thought I had.
Another thing to get tested for are viruses. These viruses can make you feel just as bad as Lyme does and some of their symptoms are very close to Lyme Disease. Ask to be tested for Epstein Barr virus, Cytomegalovirus, Mycoplasma, HHV-6 and parvo virus. I think this is it. If I think of something else, I'll post it here.
