  • if you have been outdoors (camping, hiking, etc.)or even if you have pets ----even if you do not remember ---------a tick bite.or find a mark-After a tick bite, individuals may develop any of these symptoms - that may be due to the pathogen(s) that the tick transmits during its bite: feeling as if you have the flu -head akesfever,numbness,rash,confusion,weakness,pain and swelling in joints,palpitations,Many people may not even notice the bite and may never find the tick if it falls off. symptoms often begin days to weeks after the tick is gone. That's why doctors may not suspect a tick-related illness ask you doctor to do a test.:p

  • Firstly it's not anxiety related, otherwise there would be elevated blood pressure, not decreased. Any history of recurrent strep infections?Do you have a family history of heart problems, such as mitral valve prolapse/stenosis?Did you suddenly start getting sick regularly and then your other symptoms started after? or did the headaches, swelling and such come sudden as well.Blood regurgitation from mitral valve stenosis fits, only if your headache, blood pressure and tingling symptoms were gradual and not instant.

I have treated many patients with anxiety and related disorders whom have had low blood pressure. Blood pressure can often spike but does not have to be a diagnosing factor.I am not saying that Anxiety is the cause of this young ladys problems but i would not rule out anxiety and depression as a secondary element to her presentation. A contributor to its extent lets say.
