Do I have an undiagnosed tick borne illness?
Went fishing 4/21/2017 found tick deeply embedded 4/25/2017 woke up covered in purple non itchy spots and severe stiff neck and flu symptoms  4/29/2017. Diagnosed and treated for Rocky Mountain spotted fever.  One week later was told test for RMSP turned out negative therefore stopped antibiotics. Felt somewhat better throughout time but very weak.   On 6/13/2017 started having crippling pain on top of head and severe neck pain following vomiting, fever and severe fatigue. Hospitalized on 6/14/2017 for viral meningitis.   Spinal tap and blood cultures negative for bacteria and released from hospital.  I continued withthe same crippling pain until 6/23/2017. On 6/24/2017 woke up with severe pain in both eyes and could not look at phone, tv or any light along with sore throat and sinus pressure. Went to Dr on 6/24/2017 and was told my ears and sinuses filled with fluid. Told to take Sudafed and went home.  On 6/26/2017 woke up with same pain in eyes with one very bloodshot eye that resolved throughout the day. Woke up again on 6/27 and 6/28/2017 with same symptoms.   Still feeling very tired, no appetite and lost 10 pounds. Didn't have any issues what so ever until the tick bite and wondering if I have an uncommon tick borne illness that hasn't been treated properly.  Only other issues are possible sleep apnea. Had mild/ borderline diagnosis in 2014. Snoring, Stop breathing in sleep, severe fatigue and day time drifting especially when driving and watching tv increased in last few months.
