Actually, from what I understand, the IgM only means an active infection, not a 'new' infection - and the IgG response can start to show as early as 3 weeks.
The Western Blot is based on immune response, the Lyme bacteria is not what they are looking for. Lyme, especially when combined with Bartonella, inhibits the immune response, so these tests aren't terribly accurate, although there are very few false positives. But for results like yours, the test is still very helpful.
