Can you get symptoms of LD from a tick bite a week later? I was bitten by a tick, I myself pulled it out. A week later, I woke up with a sore throat. That night the left side of my face went numb. I have lyme in my yard because my dog had it. That was a thursday night when this happened. That weekend, I had chills, muscle weakness in my legs, horrible headaches, tingling in hands and feet, back pain and burning, neck pain, neck is stiff, my throat feels swollen but i don't think it actually is, I had an episode where i was watching cars go by, and then I didn't hear anything else and could only see those cars, eye pain, sensitivity to light, I had pelvic, back and neck pains happen and go away within 5 minutes. On monday, I had a severe headache again that last twenty minutes and went away, since then i havent had the severe headache, my head feels sore tho. Now i feel beat up and sore, my back still hurts as does my neck. I was put on amoxicillin the day after the facial numbness just in case. I started it on monday. What do you guys think? I have been told no you can't have lyme that quickly, i have been told absolutely it could be lyme. Im just so confused ..it makes me crazy, because you start thinking..well maybe it is just me...and i a m a hypochondriac...But i know i m not..ARgh...any advice?
