    Wow, I am not feeling good. Shortly ago, I felt a pain like a hot needle stabbing me in my area of my side - under arm pit. Few seconds later, felt it again, but harder. Lifted my shirt and something fell out (insect looking, but didn't get good view of what), but hit the floor and was gone before I saw what it exactly was. I am not feelng too hot now. Wierd...............

    My guess is a wasp of some kind. They can sting multiple times and it hurts. Feel Better [​IMG]

    Wet some tobacco or meat tenderizer and put on the area.

    Take some Benadryl.

    Been bit many times by flying insects, it will help

    Not a wasp. I swell up huge around any wasp stings. Last time I got stung by a wasp, it was on lower part of my leg, most of below the knee swelled up.

    Had stomach cramping, muscle cramps, ears ringing, throat felt tight for some hours after what ever it was bit, stung or ?? me.

    Some sore stuff today; stomach feels sore and some muscles feel sore. Bit of headache hanging around.

    Brown Recluse or Black Widow spider, maybe? You might want to call your doctor. I hope you feel better soon. [​IMG]
    I ended up in the ER with cellulitis from a spider bite a couple of summers ago-take care of yourself, bites can be more serious than people think.

    If you get a black center to the bite you need to go to the doctor it could be a brown recluse. The black center is the start of your skin decaying. They can stop it before it gets bad. Hope thats not the case. Good Luck.
