A five-year-old girl in MS temporarily lost the ability to walk after she developed "tick paralysis", a rare condition caused by tick bites.

A mom in MS said she got the scare of her life last week when her young daughter temporarily lost the ability to walk after getting bit by a tick.

Jessica Griffin, from MS in the USA, said she did not realise anything was wrong with Kailyn until the little girl woke up last Wednesday morning.

"After tons of blood work and a CT of the head [doctors have] ruled it as tick paralysis!"

"PLEASE for the love of god check your kids for ticks!" she wrote.

After medical examination it became clear that this paralysis ticks. The test showed that Kailyn had been suffering from tick paralysis, which is a rare disease that is believed to be caused due to tick saliva.

Kailyn's doctors predicted that she would be back to normal in between 12 and 24 hours, "and sure enough within that 12 hours she was back to being her silly self, running and playing", Griffin said. "It's more common in children than it is adults", she wrote last Wednesday. Scary is a UNDERSTATEMENT!

Here is more about how and why ticks can cause paralysis and worse.

She pulled the tick out and placed it in a plastic bag, then rushed to the hospital with Kailyn, WTXL reported.

Symptoms usually begin with numbness or tingling, fatigue or weakness. Through their research that ran between January and December 2017, they found that Chicago, Boise, Dayton, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Rapid City, South Dakota, and St. Louis had the most ticks in their cities. Showering when you get home can wash away ticks that haven't attached yet and putting your clothes in a hot dryer will help to kill any ticks that may be caught in them. We are being admitted to the hospital for observation and we're hoping her balance gets straightened out!

The video was watched about 22 million times and shared more than 600,000 times before a doctor at the hospital she had been admitted to found the tick in her scalp.

The best way to avoid tick bites that can cause disease is to avoid walking through or brushing against vegetation and perform daily self-examinations for ticks.

"Look who is walking out of the hospital!"
