Never heard of. Although one can imagine that a tick could have attached to the intestinal lining and thereby transmitting the infection, it is likely that the tick would not have survived the passage in the stomach where there are acid and enzymes. At any rate, I am not aware of this mode of transmission.
See details. There are numerous tick-borne diseases including typhus, q fever, rocky mt. Spotted fever and others.
Several reasons. If it was a wood tick, it does not carry lyme. Not all deer ticks are infected. The tick must be attached for 12 hours or so to infect a person.
