Mom says daughter, 5, temporarily paralyzed by tick bite

В США пятилетнюю девочку парализовало после укуса клеща

A 5-year-old Mississippi girl was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center after her mother discovered a tick in her head.

"After tons of blood work and a CT of the head [doctors have] ruled it as tick paralysis!".

"PLEASE for the love of god check your kids for ticks!" she posted, in part.

Griffin later shared another photo of her daughter leaving the hospital.

In Canada, tick paralysis is most commonly caused by the Rocky Mountain wood tick, with most cases in south-central B.C., he said. Tick paralysis occurs mostly in the spring and early summer, and is reported more commonly in children, probably due to their smaller body mass. Symptoms tend to appear four to seven days after a tick bite and go away within 24 hours of removing the tick, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mom at first thought that maybe Kailyn had slept in an awkward position and her legs had gone numb, according to a Facebook post. "It's more common in children than it is adults", she wrote last Wednesday. The reason? A tick bite. Scary is a UNDERSTATEMENT!

In 2006, four cases of tick paralysis occurred near each other and within a short period in Colorado, where the state usually receives about one case per year, according to the CDC.

"We are going to be encountering more and more cases because we are seeing more and more ticks", said Jim Wilson, President of Canada Lyme Disease Foundation.

Paralysis begins in the legs, then spreads to the upper extremities. The disease usually starts with fatigue and muscle pains.

The main treatment for tick paralysis is completely removing the tick, including all of its mouthparts, since they contain the salivary glands that produce the toxin. It wasn't until she was brushing Kailyn's hair and pulling it back into a ponytail that she spotted a tick. We are being admitted to the hospital for observation and we're hoping her balance gets straightened out!

It was removed and Evelyn, like Kailyn was walking the next day. Later that evening, Kailin was able to walk out of the hospital.

Fortunately, tick paralysis is easy to treat: simply remove the tick and the symptoms will subside with 12 to 24 hours - that is, if you remove the tick properly.
