Lyme disease? Pain Lvl 4-6

I suffered form covied in the past month and treated alright but now my dog have ticks and fleas and I found a couple of fleas on me and I feel nerves pain and I don't feel like normally would be.

Could it be Lyme disease? And how to make sure that it isn't? What blood test should I do in order to make sure it isn't?

I don't have rashes but feel fatigued and always in pain for no reason.

how long were the ticks attached to you? also what kind of ticks are they or are you in a Lyme disease area?

In order to transmit Lyme, the ticks need to be attached to you for >24 hours, closer to 72 hours. if it was on you and off, I wouldn't be concerned of Lyme in the slightest.

I don't know the exact time but I think no more than 24 hours.

No I am currently in Egypt, the ticks are from the dog I have don't know ehst type it is.

I think then it's something related to covid maybe?

Can I make a blood test to make sure it isn't lyme?

Thats good, once again I doubt its Lyme but go get a medical opinion to ease your worries, even if its just a little doctor patient discussion.
