Lyme Disease Board Index

My western blot IgM is positive based on bands p41ab, p39ab, and p23ab. At the bottom of the report it says that individuals with other spirochetal diseases may cross react in the Lyme western blot assays.

I tried to google it but I'm getting conflicting information. Most websites say 2/3 of my bands are specific to Bb, but the lab report says it could be a false positive. I'm just having a really hard time believing I have Lyme because its very rare in Texas and I can't recall ever being bitten by a tick or having a rash. So basically what I'm asking is it possible for my test to be a false positive even though I have 2 Bb specific bands?
