Unfortunately, many times the lyme test is not reliable. That is info per the CDC. You can call the Colorado CDC who has more information about Lyme Disease than most doctors. When my mother contracted Lyme's many years ago, she never saw the tick. She had the proverbial bulls-eye rash and STILL the doctor would not concede.
The CDC was very helpful including mailing me a complete packet to give to the doctor (who was obviously insulted that I would attempt to educate him. LOL). He did the test and of course, like the CDC said, it came back negative, even tho she had ALL of the symptoms.
Here is an article describing their involvement, (before you pay for a doctor visit): http://www.cdcfoundation.org/frontline/2004/beyond_atlanta_a_closer_look_at_cdc_in_fort_collin
