The answer to that question is: No!

The majority of the patients that are diagnosed with neuroborreliosis actually instead have stage 2.

EFNS guidelines on the diagnosis and management of European Lyme neuroborreliosis

A quote:
More than 95% can be classified as early LNB (stage II), defined as signs and symptoms lasting for <6 months. Less than 5% have late LNB (stage III) with duration between 6 months and several years [12].
