Been bit by rattlesnakes, several Black Widows, Brown Recluse, several types of Bees/Wasps with no side effects like this
Anyone ever been bitten by something with toxic venom, ie: spider,snake scorpion ect.? What was your experience?
besides bees and wasps.. There is nothing venomous in my area. But there are Crotalus oreganus rattlesnakes further inland in B.C.'s southern desert areas.
I was bitten by a rattlesnake deep in the woods with my cousin. He cut the bite and used one of those rubber bite kits to try and suck the venom out. When I finally got to the hospital, they gave me a shot of something and then knocked me out. I was sick for two days. Nasty little rattler. I was in the hospital about four days. It hurt good there for a long time. Still have the scar from the cut.
I've been bit by a black widow and a brown recluse on two separate occasions. I experienced two very different reactions. The brown recluse was localized pain that radiated up my leg. I had local swelling and tenderness followed by a nasty wound that had to be cut open and cleaned out. The black widow bite hurt bad. I developed a rash and was vomiting and had vertigo. Both required emergency medical treatment. Has anyone experienced something similar?
I'm not sure if this qualifies but I once competed in a triathlon in a lake infested by stinging jellyfish. By the time we finished, most of us were cramping badly from the volume of multiple stings. The people most badly affected had to be taken to hospital and one woman was kept in for four or five days.
I don't know how successful the following year's event was. I didn't go. There were plenty of better (non-stinging) events to go to.
Still, it was an experience.
My ex wife. She was a venomous vixen.
I haven't been bitten by anything venomous but I got stung by a bee and was rushed to the emergency ward, Apparently I'm highly allergic lol.
My friend's child got bitten. His hand got swollen like a balloon and e said he's experiencing terrible pain. It really wasn't cool. At all.
I was bitten by a radioactive scorpion. The next day, I grew a tail and my thumb and index finger could pinch harder than a car compactor.
I was bitten by what I assume was a brown recluse. It hurt! It felt like someone poked my finger with a knife. It turned purple within a half hour. I went to the ER and they gave me antibiotics and a pain reliever.
