I got bitten by a tick 🙁

Laura Kane says:

Unfortunately MOST people do not know they are bit by a tick, DO NOT develop the classic erythema migrans bulls-eye rash and are dismissed by the western medical community. So, with that said, EARLY treatment with antibiotics does not typically occur, and the infection becomes worse and symptoms unbearable. Be an advocate for yourself, learn, read, study and ask for your doctor to order tests that are in their minds "off the beaten path."
