A gov site quoted below about early testing failure. If concerned, which it sounds you are, maybe get some doxycycline Antibiotics started now???

“ Lyme antibody tests—the most common diagnostic tool available today—look for antibodies in the blood that show a person has been exposed to B. burgdorferi. But it can take a few weeks before a person's immune system creates measurable levels of antibodies. This gap between being infected with the bacteria and the body's creation of antibodies can result in a false negative test for those with very early Lyme disease, resulting in a delay in treatment.”
