I was feeling ill (Lyme flair) on Friday and did not go to work. Friday evening my daughter removed an attached tick from my back. He was well attached, but not engorged. I felt kind of OK yesterday. Today I have body aches and pains -- flulike -- a general malaise and fatigue -- and the spot where the tick was attached is itching like crazy and is red and a tad swollen. Awoke w/ a sore throat, also.
If this new tick transmitted something to me, is this too early to have symptoms? I could very well be coming down w/ something because I got run down all week last week.
But I'm most concerned about the new bite and if it's too early to be ill from it. Anybody?
