EIA, ELISA, ELFA are more or less the same test and have the same reliability.
Your test at 6 months was extremely accurate (read exact), as accurate as science can be.
It is extremely unlikely (read almost impossible) that you will experience ARS symptoms at more then 6 months.
Will you please share what symptoms are you experiencing? Did you talk with your healthcare provider about your symptoms? Did you take post exposure prophylaxis?
