Yea if you youtube.com lyme microscope then you will see what it looks like. Its a very good diagnosis test IMO because you can see it with your own eyes.
They just prick you finger, draw a drop of blood. Using a high power darkfield microscope they can see your red blood cells and the spirochete. They show up like little worms as thin as hairs but they swim all around and come out of your cells when the cells start to die off.
From my understanding there is only 2 spirochete that look like that, lyme and syphilis, so the test is very reliable. They are actually very close relatives of each other, both looking the same and even doing the same stuff to the body (in the late stages) I was screened for STDs in the begining and never had the sores that go along with it, maybe I will do another test though.
