As far as I know, just the infected deer tick which is carried by deer, mice and birds. Blood tests are not very reliable unfortunately so If you want to pursue Lyme I would suggest finding a LLMD. There are not too many around. You could find one on http://www.lymenet.org and click on "find a Dr" to find one in your area. Some people with Lyme complain about twitching. It's worth checking out if you live in such an area.

they are not sure about what the actual vector is but they say that a horsefly might be to blame in the cases of no rash...
