thought I would see what others have done when bitten by a spider. maybe what their Doctor did. What they went through as for as being sick from it. I notice my spider bite on my belly , I guess last Thursday but I had started getting a little sick the day before. So I 'm not real sure when it happen. Thursday it looked like a chigger bite. That night it got bigger. Friday, black spot almost size of a dime , surrounded by red infection and hurt like heck. I went to doc. He wasn't in so I saw his P.A. which is like a Doc from what I'm told. She thinks it was a Brown Recluse , or Black widow, also said it could have been any number of spiders . ( I have been exposed to mostly Brown Recluse and Black widows.) .Said they dont like to cut it out now days if can keep from it but its a possibility if it doesn't heal . Gave me strong pain pills and some Anti Bodices. Also said it would get worse before better and give it a few days , if no change call them. . I'm as sick as a dog with rabies. I have been in much pain. the bite is bigger, the red circle is bigger. My ribs feel broke, belly hard as a rock and hurts anywhere i touch it. head hurts, neck, legs ,back all stiff . Throat swelling Been throwing up with no warning. haven't eaten but a few bites of food since Friday. 102.5 temp. Dang thing is kicking my butt. I dont like pain pills . They make my mind confused/bad mood . hang over effect on me and I dont need help on that. LOL. But with out them, I can hardly move. Plus I have had 7 surgeries and everytime I'm sick, it makes each one hurt. I also got red bumps popping up all over me. Like the after shock of the bite. looks like pimples and they hurt like the bite itself. Its like a bad case of the flu or something. I would have thought the Doctors office would give me a shot, maybe lance the bite and suck out the poison, even a blood test to see whats up. I'm not getting better but they did say it would get worse before better. It has crossed my mind to use my snake bite kit on it to suck out the poison. :crazy: A friend of mine just left and said, he was sick for a week before going to Doc on spider bite, they gave him a shot and lance it . next day he felt much better after they sucked out the poison but he knew for sure it was a Black widow that got him.. I dont like going to the doctors office. They beat around the bush too much. I like to get r done and over with in first visit. Cheaper and to the point . Anyway I was wondering Anyone here ever been bitten by a spider , if so, how did it effect you. This is a first for me I got to get over this quick, by the end of the week at the latest. I got irons in the fire that I cant put off.
