Joint pain, started having contact with ticks. Lyme disease?

I have joint pain. Could it be lyme disease?
I did not notice any kind of rash. But the joint pain started in June when I had been outside and in contact with ticks, I remember brushing off a few at different times that month. The joint pain is mostly in my hands and wrists. Some days the pain bothers me, some days it is not there at all.
