Finally got stung

Yellowjacket got caught in my sleeve and stung me between 3 and 6 times before i got her out. I feel bad it happened to her and this is what you guys are complaining about? It's no worse than bacon grease hitting your nipple. I'm 29 and never been stung before the way internet people built it up I thought it would be unholy agonozing pain

    It's also possible she was dry-stinging, meaning she might have been trying to be nice and just giving you a warning. I never got stung by a yellowjacket but was "stung" by a paper wasp -- I noticed there was a small film of venom on my skin so she didn't inject it. Probably a tiny drop came out after withdrawing the stinger.

      I didn't realize dry-stinging was a thing. I had a wasp sting me flat on the nose once and it just felt like being pinched and there wasn't any swelling at all after.

    You need to go to a hospital, OP. Even though you may feel fine, the venom can react with your immune system hours or even days after the fact and you'll get an allergic reaction. You need antivenom immediately.

    >bacon grease hitting your nipple
    This is honestly pretty accurate for the initial sting for most people. For some, even when the sharp pain dies down, there’s a dull throbbing ache or itch that can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. I’ve had stings in the same general area that were only just the initial burn and others that lingered for days to weeks and some of those annoyingly burned or itched enough that it kept me from sleeping. Sometimes they’ll turn into a tiny blister of venom instead that feels no different than the mild pressure from acne, but feels like getting stung again when it pops.

    Ran over a nest with my lawnmower a couple years back, got stung about 6 times across various spots up and across my body, and the initial stings werent that bad, like you said close to a hot oil spatter. The ache afterwards though kept me up for a bit that night, similar to a corss between a minor burn and a pulled muscle ache, but the next morning I was fine.
    What DID frick me up is that they seemed to give me some kind of viral infection, because after that initial night I developed a minor fever and flu-like weakness/aches, and then spent the next week and a half with the worst diarrhea Ive ever had in my life.
    >painful cramping forcing me to the toilet
    >feel it working its way down through my lower torso
    >dribble a half tablespoon of brown water out of my ass, thats all
    >repeat every 90 minutes to half hour for the next ten days
    Doctors didnt do a fricking thing for me either, because they were convinced someone with a fever, diarrhea, general weakness/body aches and literally zero respiratory involvement whatsover was somehow covid.

        Wasnt their fault, it was getting to be about dusk and I had no idea they were even there, or even that they dug underground nests in the first place. What shocked me was that apparently they were either carrying some kind of zoonotic virus or something. I had initially thought it was a immune response to the toxin but if that was the case it was an INCREDIBLY atypical immune reponse.

          This is how I will go on. Like I said I felt bad for her. Looking up yellowjackets there is a chance their stingers come out and kill them. I am sorry that I unwittingly made a little creature think she had to risk her life.

        I'd gotten stung by a yellowjack before when I was a kid, and I'm pretty sure either bit or stung three times by one that had flown down my shirt while on a bike about ten years ago. I didnt have any kind of allergic reaction then, and what I did have didn't behave remotely like any allergic reaction I know of, but it DID feel and present like a low-grade flu or systemic viral infection.

      Why didn't you get tested ?
      The majority of coronaviruses infect mostly the gut tissue and so does Sars-Cov-2. Diarhea is even more common than cough in Covid.
      By the way, acute Covid doesn't frick your lungs by drowning you in your mucus like most respiratory illnesses, it damages the tiny blood vessels (in your whole body btw), which makes your blood clot in your lungs.

        I did, because that's all they seemed to want to do for me. rapid and PCR, both negative.

    Not everyone has the same pain tolerance and maybe you didn't get a full dose of venom.
    >the way internet people built it up I thought it would be unholy agonozing pain
    I've never noticed that trend except for hornets and bullet ants and all that jazz that youtubers like to get stung with for views

    everyone's body reacts differently to stings, that's what I think when I read about hellishly painful stings.

    It's why some people can be surprised that the "top worst stings" in the Schmidt pain scale aren't as painful as advertised, while others on the lower end are. (and also why that scale is more novelty)

      It also depends where you get stung. My oldest kid didn't feel a wasp sting on her back, but my middle was in tears from a sting to the face. Different areas have different concentrations of pain sensors

      Oh for sure and I should mention I found out the hard way fifteen minutes ago I learned I'm not allergic it's just people talk like bee/wasp stings are like molten lava or something. It just kinda stung for a second. So I don't get what the big deal is. If my phone didnt dox me I live in a very rural area and a lot of my income is mowing shit between classes and it's never really been a problem so I guess I'm just confused

        I'm fairly allergic to bees and the pain (for me) ranges from almost non-existent to absolutely indescribable. Interestingly I'm not allergic to wasps at all. I've been stung right between the eyes by a wasp and sure it hurt like a bastard for a bit and gave me a cracking headache, but wasn't really all that bad. For comparison I've also been stung by a wasp on that bit of skin between my thumb and index finger and that shit was more agonising than my worst bee sting. I think if anything its a combination of how much venom is delivered and the nerves it manages to get to.
