Two days ago I got a tick and attempted to pull it out but its head got stuck in my skin. I tried to get the head out but I'm not 100% sure that I did. Now, where the tick was there is a small bump. Also, my chest slightly hurts whenever I breath, but this symptom started when I was playing tennis for two hours in around 100 degree heat. And, my shoulders are slightly achy. What should I do, is the chest pain and achy shoulders a symptom of the tick or not, is the bump a sign of infection, and do these two symptoms specifically relate to a disease transmitted by a tick? Help Please!!

Help Please!!Too late as the stomach of the tick may of injected into your skin when you pulled it out.You need to do the following:-1) Get a needle, sterilise it and get the ***n head out asap.2) go to the health food shop and but some olive leaf extract or look online and buy some samento and take it for 2 weeks minimum. Also limit your diet to no sugar or white flour or processed foods and drink lots of water to flush out the toxins.3) if you get a rash go see the doctor and get doxycycline at 200mg for minimum of 2 weeksDave :-)
