Something bit me but...

May 19, 2012 6:56am CST
Well something bit me on my lower armpit near my left breast just 30 minutes ago but there is really NO visible bite mark. The sensation was stingy and somewhat painful (throbbing). What was going on? I don't remember any insects crawling on my body before I felt that something bit me right on that area. The pain gradually subsides for now but I'm still worried. No signs and symptoms yet. Have you experienced this kind of bite but there's really no visible bite mark?

Ouch...I have been bitten before by an unknown assailant but there is usually a mark when I do. We have Black Widows and Brown Recluses in my area so there is always a concern when there is an unknown bite that causes discomfort. I have been lucky enough not to have been bitten by one of them before though. I am pretty sensitive to mosquitoes and they can leave a huge whelp on me.

The bite I got was from a bumble bee. I knew it was around me because the nest was in my yard. Like right now there is a nest in my ard. but the god thing is it is very igh on the pole thing.

Well it may be a tiny ant. I had got a bite from a small red ant. It was reall pain to me. The pain was for hours. I could feel only the pain there was on identifications. When i searched my clothes i found a small red ant. Anyway i think i is better to make used of natural medicinal plants like tulasi. It will help you to get rid of pain and help your body without effecting the poison to your body or you can see a doctor.

I have experienced this but never in that area. I asked my doctor and she said it's a nerve misfire that creates a pinching sensation. I get it most often on my face for some reason. Sometimes I feel like there's something crawling on my leg or foot and that's nerve-created, too. It could be that's what you're experiencing. If so, it's harmless but if it happens more than rarely you might mention it on your next visit to the doctor.
