I pulled a small tick off my hip Sunday and thought nothing of it... Ive had lots of them on me before living in the country. Anyways... I started to feel sick a few days later and the area where i was bitten got very swollen and itchy. What really alarmed me was that my lymph node in the crease of my leg at my thigh had swollen up and gotten hard as a rock, it felt like a golf ball under the skin... very painful! So i went to the Dr and she told me that it was a chance that I might be infected with limes and that the best course of action was to go ahead and do the full treatment, 21 days of antibiotics twice a day... big ass horse pills! So.... the good news is that the doc said that when limes is caught early on that its not a big deal and they can blast it out of you with the antibiotics... She also said its a possibility that it was just a really nasty bite and caused a bad infection in my body... either way im glad I caught it early! So if any of you folks get bitten by a tick and start feeling sick our out of the ordinary, go to your Dr!
