Initial symptoms may include:
lack of appetite
Later signs and symptoms include:
The signs and symptoms of RMSF may follow within 1 to 14 days of a tick bite. But in many cases, someone who develops the infection doesn't remember being bitten by a tick.
Symptoms of RMSF usually begin suddenly. There is a high fever - often 103 degrees Fahrenheit (39 degrees Celsius) to 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) - with chills, muscle aches, and a severe headache. Eyes may become red, muscles may be tender to the touch, and there may be abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, and fatigue.
