Three Lyme tests were done, and 2 coinfection tests were done.
Fall 2007 - IGeneX positive/CDC negative, but the doctor who ordered the test agreed that my clinical picture fit with Lyme and thus he diagnosed me with Lyme.
Winter 2008 - Quest labs negative (but a few bands were positive).
Summer 2008 - CDC positive (Mayo Clinic labs did the tests, though I was not a patient there at the time)...and the ID doctor who ordered the test blew it off as impossible to be Lyme/must be cross-reacting with something else (with what? he couldn't come up with an answer when I asked)...
All coinfection tests, first from Fry Labs ('08 or '09, I can't remember) & later from IGeneX (2010), were all negative, though I do have clinical diagnosis of Bartonella, and I personally suspect I've had an Anaplasma infection for a long, long time (based on unexplained blood test anomalies, mostly)...
