In brief: Varied features

Lysis testing involves blood tests.
There is a screening Lyme test and a Western Blot that is more specific. Symptoms vary and are often missed. Typical rash( bulls eye lesion ) may be seen fatigue, joint pain, neurological changes like facial numbness or Bell's palsy and many others
