Tick bite issues. Removed one, had a bigger one on

Tick bite issues. Removed one, had a bigger one on back but got rubbed off when drying off with towel. Can't find it. Another spot has dark red round rash about the size of a roofing nail head or a little bigger. Could have as long as 5 days as he was turkey hunting.

On Monday April 28th, to my surprise I found a tick in my left ear after hiking on Sunday. With the help of my husband we quickly removed the tick. I am a huge outdoor person, raise and show dogs, have dealt with ticks in the past many times both on my and on my pets with NO effects. However last night (May 4th) I had an enormous amount of discomfort, feeling like some of my joints are just on FIRE and the feeling of fatigue that is simply NOT normal for me with constant feel of sourness or just tenseness in my back/shoulder area . Yesterday (May 4th) we went out to eat and within seconds of our meal I had HUGE abdominal issues that had me in the restroom before we left the restaurant. Today I just feel feverish although not registering a fever but an over-all feeling of not being well. Are these symptoms of a tick bite... it seems a little fast for what I have learned in the past.

I had a tick bite a few weeks ago. I did remove the tick after it broke into my skin and caused some swelling around the area it penetrated. I now have rash on my legs that looks like chicken pox. The tick was imbedded in the area of my knee. Is it possible the tick is causing this rash?

I think i was bit by a lone star tick today. I found him and removed him about a hour ago. It had a small white dot on its back. I googled it and seen it matched the lone star tick. I have a headache but I get them pretty regular. Should I be concerned?
