    Came across this video and thought it might be of interest to people on this site. This woman does vlogs on bushcraft in Bavaria. She was bitten by a tick and this is the outcome.

    Hadn't heard of neuroborreliosis before, seems it's a neurological effect caused by Lyme's. I'm a bit confused though, from what she says, her spinal tap seems to have given a diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and she doesn't mention being bitten by a tick, or how long afterwards these symptoms appeared. I'm wonder if she contracted this by some other vector?

    She did seem quite confused but I think it was a tick bite.
