Should I be worried?

Just as I was about to fall asleep, I felt something tickling my neck. I reached my hand back, and found that it was a lone star tick. I know the diseases associated with ticks, of course, but should I be worried that I got bit? I don't even know if I did - all I know is that I won't be falling asleep anytime soon.

If you would have gotten bit then you would have had to pull the tick out of your skin. If that didnt happen then I wouldnt worry about it.

The tick might have bitten you or not. If you don't have any signs yet on the skin like irritation of the skin then probably you shouldn't worry. You need to go to the doctor just to be sure that nothing is wrong and the tick didn't bite you.

If you can bring the bug in a bag to the doc that would be helpful if not that's okay I'd throw your sheets and confter in the dryer on high heat for 20mins to kill em if theirs anymore.. and vacuum, then go to bed.. call the doc 2mrw and ask them tell them and see if they say to come in.

Positive...haha. I live around the woods, so I know what a tick looks like. A lone star tick is just a tick with a white *star* on it's back.
