Is it possible to have swelling and pain in hands and legs/feet soon after a tic bite without a fever or rash and not have a bulls eye type mark?

In brief: Yes

Most cases of Lyme disease do not have a Bull's eye mark or fever before joint issues set in.
Do you need an Rx?

You believe you have Lyme disease, from what you are describing.
There are actually other infectious disorders as well as other immune diseases that can occur that effect swelling and painful joints. See a doctor for a full evaluation.
