What kind of pain would you relate a wasp sting to?

Asked by stemnyjones (3969points) May 19th, 2010

I’ve never been stung by a wasp before, and after a close call today, I was wondering… what does it feel like? How intense is the pain? What kind of pain would you relate it to?

And what about a bee sting?

Different people are more sensitive to pain, but I would relate it to a very sharp sting produced by a snap of a large rubber band, or the stick of the vaccination needle at the doctor’s.

Sort of a mild stinging for a little bit, then it’s just a mild annoyance. I have a high tolerance for pain though.

Them’s real bullets they’re shootn’—- a thought that might cross your mind after being stung…

I take joy knowing they die after, so they have commited a futile act.

Only been stung once, and I can still remember it. It was on the tip of my finger. The initial pain was intense, like a rose thorn being stuck in you, then a continual throbbing which lasted for the rest of the day. Not good.

Just yesterday I was stung by a bee for the first time. It hurt quite a bit, a long lasting pinch-burn sensation. Thirty-six hours later and it’s still sensitive.

I would compare it to having a pin hammered into your skin with a Volkswagon ;)

@lucillelucillelucille Your not that much of a wuss are you?

A sudden sharp pain, which feels like a minor burn afterwards. Denno about bees, but those hurt a hell of a lot more apparently.

@lucillelucillelucille My guess would be you laugh at stuff that would make a man cry.
