Hi,

Yes, this happened not only to myself but to other people I know. There area also people who have had culture proven (PCR) Lyme infections who tested negative on the Western Blot.

Please re-read one of my earlier replies outlining some of the reasons for a Western Blot to give a false negative. Sometimes there are too few free antibodies in the blood stream to give a reading - they are all tied up with antigens (called a complexed antibody) which does not show up on the test. Sometimes for this reason a person can test positive after a course of antibiotics because the body isn't struggling so hard to fight the infection and there is a measureable amount of antibodies in the blood.
