I am 20 years old and got bit by a tick the other day. I didnt think anything of it, been around them my whole life. Then the bit started to become very itchy and slightly swollen, look like a nasty mosquito bite. It's nothing compared to the pictures I've seen. This happend on a Sunday and about Friday I started having severe skin sensativity. I wan't able to wear jeans they hurt so bad. The next day it developed into severe pain through out my entire body...it varies from sharp pains in random parts of my body to short muscle spasms. I do also have a slight fever.. I'm constantly extremely cold or burning up.. Basically I am in so much pain that i just want an answer and want to know if anyone is in the same place? Is it possible to have my symptoms and not the rest and to start having them so quickly? I have been under A LOT of stress and wonder if the tick bite is just a coincidence???
