Just wondering if anyone has heard or experienced this.  I woke up this morning and my left hand was sore in the joints.  As the day went on, my hand started to swell up.  over the last week i have been caping several deer. The deer that i have taken in this year have been loaded with ticks. 
I do wear gloves when handling anything that comes  into my shop..  Heading to the doctor tomarrow and will request a blood test  for Lyme.(better safe then sorry).

Did you cut yourself and not no it? I cut myself one time back when I was a meat cutter. I got some pork blood in the cut and lost feeling in that hand and my entire arm swelled and I lost movement in it. If I didn't go in imediately, I couldv'e died from it. You should go in now, better safe than sorry.

last week I was skinning a coyote and didnt have my gloves on, I know stupid.  But I had a small cut on my middle finger of my left hand, the next morning I woke up and I couldnt hardly bend my finger, I put some salve on it for 2 days and it got better.  Ill know enough now to not be lazy and wear my gloves whenever i skin a critter now.  Hopefully theres nothing serious with yur hand and everythings ok.  Good luck, Kevin
