The other day 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. What should I do, is the chest pain 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!!
