Tick paralysis causes ascending paralysis as a result of a tick bite. The most common victims of tick paralysis are domestic animals, but human cases sometimes occur in children under 10 years old. Tick paralysis is caused by transmission of a neurotoxin from a tick that is attached to an individual. About a week after the infected tick is attached, symptoms including fatigue, numbness, and muscle pains start to appear. Paralysis can develop rapidly if the tick is not removed. Symptoms of tick paralysis quickly diminish after the tick is removed. There is no vaccine for tick paralysis, but the infection can be prevented by avoiding areas with high tick populations and by self-examining for ticks every day.
