In brief: Why are u assuming?

Your pcp likely used the cdc recommended two-step lyme test using eia and western blot.
If it's negative, then have you ever considered an alternative diagnosis other than lyme? In many cases, there is another cause for the symptoms you have that is not just attributable to lyme, but to other diseases. If you can keep an open mind, then consider an id specialist - then you'll find the real dx.
