Isaac:

Check with your doctor, there are certain kinds of infections that can be transmitted by tick bites including Lymes Disease , typhus, relapsing fever, and several others. Be sure your doctor knows about your history of the tick bite preceeding your illness and if needed get a consultation by an Infectious Disease specialist. Your symptoms are too worrisome to keep waiting it out.

Thanks,
