Young girl temporarily paralyzed by tick bite, mom says

Mum's parasite warning after daughter was left unable to walk

A MS mother took to Facebook to share a photo of her 5-year-old daughter walking out of the hospital following a harrowing ordeal involving a tick bite.

The mother said she noticed the tick when she went to brush Kailyn's hair and shared a photo of the red mark on her scalp to Facebook.

After finding a tick in her daughter's hair, the mother said she rushed her little girl to the hospital. Through numerous blood work and a CT scan, Kailyn's doctors diagnosed her with tick paralysis.

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

However, as she spent more time with her daughter, Griffin discovered some disturbing signs.

In Canada, tick paralysis is most commonly caused by the Rocky Mountain wood tick, with most cases in south-central B.C., he said. According to the Center for disease control U.S., symptoms usually occur within 24 hours after removal of the tick As expected, the effect of the toxin has passed and the girl returned to normal after 12 hours. Griffin posted on her Facebook page.

Women and children are most at risk.

In happy news Kailyn was able to walk out of hospital after receiving treatment. Scary is [an] UNDERSTATEMENT!

"If the ticks aren't removed, the accumulation of this saliva can result in disruption of the respiratory muscles and the paralysis can be fatal".

Paralysis begins in the legs, then spreads to the upper extremities.

After a female tick feeds for five to seven days, the toxin builds up in a person's system. It can start as fatigue, numbness and an increasing inability to move.

The paralysis is more common in animals, which are unable to check themselves for the ticks. Lindsay says that even people in urban areas should check their body for tick bites if they have been outside for a while. A nurse bathing her after she was admitted to the hospital found a tick along her hairline.

A 5-year-old girl faced a crisis just as she was getting ready to go to daycare.

Once it was removed, Evelyn was walking the next day.

"Look who is walking 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.
