Well the good old U of Chicago has published the IDSA guidlines for Lyme

Unfortunately I think its one of those journals one can't access from everywhere, but the citation:

Clinical Infectious Diseases 2006;43:10891134
(c) 2006 by the Infectious Diseases Society of America. All rights reserved.
1058-4838/2006/4309-0001$15.00
DOI: 10.1086/508667

and the article is quite extensive.

But a quick read of it still notes that Lyme disease is not a condition that warrants long term use of antibiotics.

Now, people may have different opinions, that it is under reported, possibly, but while the number of reported cases has risen [from the CDC] (due to population increase and possibly increased reporting, one might surmise) is less than traffic fatalities, influenza deaths, and other conditions one can think of.

And these are reports, not deaths.

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/lyme/ld_UpClimbLymeDis.htm

The average cases is 9 per 100,000, with about 1/10,000 in the most probable areas, mainly New England states.
