Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry that your post got overlooked. Since you do know for sure that you got bit by a tick, you may want to ask your doctor to put you on antibiotics. Doxycyline is what most physicians give for a new infection. You will want to ask for at least 400mg for no less than six weeks. You may also want to try and find a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor so that you get the correct treatment.
Did you notice a rash at all?
I'm not sure if a Western Blot test would pick up any antibodies at this time. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable about

Until then, if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask them. And, if you need help finding an Lyme Literate Medical Doctor, let me know.
