Default Why ALS and not Lyme?

What is the deciding factor between diagnosing ALS and Lyme? My neuro says ALS.

I have muscle atrophy and arm weakness, but can't that be caused by Lyme as well? I also have an abnormal EMG showing nerve damage, but Lyme also does that.

I've never tested positive for Lyme but am responding to ceftriaxone. Does that mean I don't have ALS?
