Tick Bite: I don't know the cause of this constellation of symptoms but it sounds miserable. What you described doesn't sound like a deer tick (blacklegged tick ) which can be found in your area and transmit Lyme Disease. You can google the image. I do recommend that you be medically evaluated. Take care.
