Well, my Dr. and I figured I had Bartonella even before treating lyme. Because I had a lot of Nervous system issues. I have nerve pain, tingling, vibrations, shivers, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, and had (no longer do) tremors.
There are more - those are off the top of my head.
Unfortunately, my LLND treated me for lyme only for 9 1/2 months ...before switching to bartonella.
I'm still not 100%, so I am taking an herbal med for Babesia now...
So, often we are diagnosed clinically for the co-infections.
There are tests you can have done, but they're even more unreliable than the Lyme tests.
My new LLND has suggested I test for some of the co-s with a lab I have never heard of. I am considering it because it's not too expensive. (but you usually do get what you pay for...so I'm not holding my breath for a positive)
