Could this be lyme?

A little over a week ago, I started to get prickly/itchy sensations all over. They travel around, usually only itching in one spot at a time with no visible marks. Around this same time, I noticed a brown spot in the middle of my shin about an inch in diameter. I kind of looked like a bruise but I didn't remember hitting it anywhere. The next day, the mark grew larger, now oblong in shape to about 3 inches by 2 inches. It did not hurt, itch or feel warm. Over the next 4 days, the mark gradually disappeared but the prickly sensations remained. I have had no fever during this entire time. I am hypothyroid so my muscles and joints are always a bit achy but nothing really different there. I felt a bit tired and slightly headachy on some days but nothing close to what I would consider flu like symptoms. Should I have this checked out? I have read that itching all over can be an early symptom of Lyme. Any thoughts?

~~~Hello thcamry, welcome!

~~~The very best advice we can give you at this point is for you to find a LLDr, Lyme Literate Dr, and let Him/Her properly diagnose you.

~~~If you go to any Dr other than a LLDr, your chances are excellent that you may be mis-diagnosed and you will go from one specialist after the next chasing ghosts. And if you do have LCD, Lyme Complex Disease, and do not take proper care, you will continue to decline.
