Tom if I would have known when I was bitten what I know now, I would not be on IV antibiotics 24 hours a day. I also burned the tick with a match, because I did not know better. I definitely would not wait until symtpoms appear. Only 50% of people with Lyme get a rash. No Lyme tests are 100%. Blood tests are unreliable especially early on. Even the CDC says that Lyme should be diagnosed clically. Lyme is very serious. I definitely would take the antibiotics. Only cetain antibiotics are effective for Lyme. The side effects from them cannot compare to the symptoms and long term affects of Lyme Disease. Please get the book "Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease" it is packed with information.
