Yes, I'm a lymie and I'm here to put in my two cents' worth. Actually, ALL ticks can transmit lyme disease, and, unfortunately, the treatment you would likely get from your GP would not cure it. Believe me, I went through exactly that -- was undertreated by my GP and ended up really sick for the next 4 years. Still sick now, probably with some permanent damage. Anyway... While all ticks can transmit lyme, many are not infected. Watch the area and watch your symptoms; if you develop a circular rash around the bite, that is a definite sign of lyme (it's called erythema migrans, which is a definitive sign of lyme disease). Also, if you develop flu-like symptoms (fever, stiff neck, headache, achy joints -- any or all of the above), you should probably start researching lyme. The lyme forum here on HW has a lot of good resources and knowledgable people.
For the future, you might want to do some research about proper tick removal (there is a way to remove them to prevent them from injecting the disease into you as you remove them, if they haven't injected it yet). Also, you can save the actual ticks (dead or alive, I believe) and send them off to IgeneX lab in CA to be tested.
Good luck! Hopefully you got a "clean" tick.
