    Leaving work today all of a sudden I felt my wrist start burning. I thought I just caught it on something and scrapped it. But I find a nice big stinger in there. Now I've been stung by everything my whole life and never had any bad reactions. but within a few seconds my whole hand started swelling up and I could feel the burning going up my arm.

    Now it's been about a half an hour and I've popped 3 benadryl(yeah I know thats alot---I'll be sleeping good tonight) and the swelling has gone down a little but my whole arm is still burning like hell and still a little puffy. I can barely type and I have to use the mouse with my opposite hand.

    so what could have got me??? I can only think bee since there was a stinger but I've never had any reaction to a bee sting.

    I don't think wasps leave their stinger behind... they can just keep stinging you over and over and over again :1zhelp:

    "I'll sting you, stink you, sting this guy over there"

    Bees go around, sting once and go home and make honey. Wasps, go out, sting EVERYBODY, and go home and make NOTHING. Just sit around and smoke pot all day long.

    Actually I don't think they can even make it home. Had one sting me once and it didn't even make it 10 feet. So I stepped on it just to make sure. Dirty little *#&^%#$%!!!

    You should go to the doctor. If its something you have not been stung by before, and you are allergic to it, it will cause the symptoms you described the first time it stung you, but the second time you will go into anaphalactic shock. If your whole hand swelled up, I wouldnt take a chance.

    Im not sure how far they are advancing, but in california, it very well could have been killer bees.
