In brief: Please see below.

Early symptoms of lyme disease can include rash, flulike illness characterized by fever, chills, achy muscles or joints, headache, and malaise.
In the area of the tick bite, lymph nodes can be enlarged and tender. Later, facial paralysis, meningitis, arthritis, and/or arrhythmias may develop.
