Bee sting...

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Postby TheRedQueen » July 20th, 2010, 8:19 pm

:cuss:

To add to my fantastic day yesterday...I got a bee sting on my foot. Stepped in the grass, caught a bee between my flip flop and my toes.

Luckily it didn't send me to the hospital like last year when I got stung on my back...small miracle. ;)

But I'm hobbling on a very painful and swollen foot...ugh.

Okay I'm done ranting now...;)

I took a bunch of benadryl last night...so John very nicely drove me to my sister's for the Oreo hand-off...I fell asleep in the van, with my foot propped up on his scooter. I woke up flailing after dreaming I was falling. SUPER! ;)

I had a full day of dog-walking, pet-sitting today, so no benadryl for me today...:( puts me to sleep! I'm off to bed now though...

Do you have severe allergies to bee stings? :shock: You must have REALLY pissed him off squishing him between your foot and the flip-flop.

Yeah, I've get some raging reactions to insect bites and poison ivy... :( that's why, all things considered, this isn't toooooo bad. ;) At least no hospital visit! (sucks w/o insurance, let me tell you!)

Bee allergy's usually get worse with each sting (honey bees).
If you ever get stung and have breathing issues, get help and don't wait as they can be fatal.
Your doctor can give you a prescription for a sting kit with antihistamines and a epinephrine autoinjector that could save your life.

OUCH! Nothing like a bee sting in the foot! One time I got stung by a bee right between the eyes. It looked like I had a third eye for a day or so!

Yeah, last time it was a wasp sting...and I went into shock and had trouble breathing...had to go to the ER via ambulance.

Last time I was at the doctor, they wouldn't give me an Epi-pen prescription...even though I also have food and drug allergies that have caused me to go to the hospital for breathing problems. :confused: I dunno.

No offense, but I think you need a different doctor. Going into shock and taking an ambulance ride are serious business. That Epi-pen could save your life and it's not like you are going to turn around and sell it on the black market instead of using it!!

I agree. the last time I was stung I was accross the street from the ER, and when I walked in the door they didn't even ask my name before treating me. I have never had a hard time getting a prescription.

I don't think I have been stung by a bee since I was a kid. I wonder if they "pegged you" as an allergic one. 8)

Well, that was a few years ago when I had insurance...now I don't have a doctor. ;)

Erin, can you go to the health department and tell them your experience. They might be able to help you at least get a pen in case of emergency.
That is where we got Mckinlee's Epi-pen.
Just a thought :|
I went today and had some vaccines done. I had to have them for school and my insurance wouldn't pay for them. I went to a different county health department but they were running some sort of special for all the vaccines. I only had to pay 20$ for the skin test. Saved me 300$. You might have to call to different areas but it might be worth it.

Glad you are feeling better Erin. I thought about you yesterday as a bee flew into the side of my head and stung me in the temple. Really. My grandfather became allergic to bees later in his life. So after a few minutes of waiting for my head to explode, I figured I am still not allergic. Thank goodness too since I was by myself about 45 mintues away from where I live! And any hospitals!!!
