: As if Lyme desease wasn't enuf, we have a new
: desease contracted thru tick bites.
: "Most people who are infected develop
: sickness between five and 15 days after they
: are bitten. The symptoms may include a
: sudden fever, chills, headaches, muscle or
: joint aches, and nausea. A rash may also
: occur. These symptoms usually continue for
: two to 9 days, then disappear. This cycle
: may continue for several weeks if the person
: is not treated. Relapsing fever is easily
: treated with a one- to two-week-course of
: antibiotics, and most people improve within
: 24 hours. Complications and death due to
: relapsing fever are rare."
