If I do have Lyme (not sure, but my doctor gave me meds anyway) when might the meds "kick in"?  I got the tick bite about three weeks ago, so I imagine any infection I have isn't very far along or severe.
I've been on the meds for 2 days and don't feel any better yet...
Also, is muscle twitching common?  I've been having a lot lately (along with my other flu-like symptoms).
Many thanks!!!

If you don't have Babesia, and your tick bite is recent as you say, you should feel much better in three weeks. If not, you should have a blood smear by a reputable lab to look for signs of protozoans.

Good luck...

And yes muscle twitching was a major neurological symptom.
