    Strains are sort of like different types of Borrelia. Any given Lyme test usually only will recognize certain types or strains. Probably few (if any) tests will recognize the strain that is found in Iceland. There are over 100 strains or types that have been found in different countries of the world. In each country they test for just the strains that are found in the region. In Europe they test for more strains than in the US (I've read).

    So it would be interesting to ask your doctor if the test used on you would recognize the garinii strain or type.

    Best,
