If you contract Lymes disease is the joint pain most likely to be near the site of the bite or all over? And, can you get it without ever having a fever?

Asked by JLeslie (58436points) July 12th, 2009

Someone I know suspects a tick bite, but has had no fever, but does have inflammation where the bite is suspected, and the joint nearest to the bite is stiff and painful. She lives where there are a lot of deer ticks. She has been bitten before, but previously has removed the tick before it seemed to get to the blood supply.
