    During my college days (Eastern Oregon State, elevation 3,000′ and up), one of my professors had a daughter that was (eventually) diagnosed with tick paralysis. It seems that if a tick burrows into the soft tissue near the neck/head, (un-detected), it can cause bizarre neurological symptoms. A sharp emergency room doc spotted the trouble and she fully recovered. Pretty scary.

    This episode made me more watchful. Tick inspection became routine.
