I got 2 tick bites at the barn a few weeks ago, and I was severely freaking out about getting lymes deasease. I notices them when I felt a small stinging and absolutely went beserk and just slapped them off. I got lucky because the heads came off too. You know if the head came off or not by if there is a crater in the middle of the bump (if it is lodged in there it will just come out when its done feeding). Both of mine had craters and turned red and were very hard bites. When I say hard I mean like solid masses under the skin if you have lymes desease you will have something that looks like this: bump of redness from the bite, normal skin, the a ring of red. I've never heard of you symptoms causing lymes, possibly its a a reaction similar to blood poisening around the bite? Don't panic! Your seeing the doctor so now you just have to wait!
