Can one of the lyme angels please explain what this means in layman terms? Every single time I think I understand a little bit, I fall backwards. What the heck are persisters? Geez, this is starting to feel impossible to beat.
Mustard Seed, how do you get to look at your blood under a microscope? Are you in the medical/science field? Cool.
Daisies, so sorry your third is not responding well. Really sorry about that. Hugs.
The scientific community seems to be favoring the term "persister" over "cyst" as they aren't cysts in the typical sense. Both are referring to the same thing. Could also be called round-bodies.
I'm not in the medical field. I just bought my own microscope from a refurbisher for about
$300 (can get them on eBay as well), and draw my own blood with one of those diabetes lancets. I learned how to smear the blood from YouTube.
Cheaper and more accurate than IGENEX (though I had that done too)... and just super cool to look at!
