Lyme test question

Hi guys
Quick question: I went to my neuro for a follow up visit yesterday. I mentioned Lyme and the fact that it comes back negative a lot even though people have it. He told me that with the test he gave me, its the exact opposite. He said they usually do not test people for lyme b/c it comes back as positive so often, but he sent mine out anyway since he said he would test me for anything. he said taht the fact that mine came back negative is an even stronger sign that its not lyme. I thought it was the opposite? is it possible that he gave me a different lyme test? I have my results and it says LYME ANA, that's it. The lab was NY Presbyterian hospital labs. Any insight? Thanks :)
