There have been other definitions of chronic Lyme disease put forth, they just have not been accepted by the IDSA, CDC and NIH.
Yes, I think this is the case.

Dr Horowitz wrote the following on facebook (november 9, 2018):
With regards to chronic Lyme disease, the situation is more complex. There is no one accepted definition for chronic Lyme disease...
I suggest that everyone use the original definition of chronic (Lyme) borreliosis, which can be found in the first post in this thread!

A quote:
“Chronic” Lyme disease (CLD) is not recognized as a disease in the medical community.

Borreliose (Borreliosis)

A (partly) google translated quote:
The term "chronic borreliosis" is used differently in different environments. Medical professional environment uses the term for stage 3 of the disease, ie an untreated Borrelia infection for at least 6 months. Six months is a common limit for counting a disease as chronic. In such cases, the borrelia bacterium is still active in the body.
