  1. Re: What's the longest you've gone without getting stung?

    I have a hive, but don't consider myself a beekeeper yet. My daughter's boyfriend is teaching me. I've been stung 4 time, all on purpose. :rolleyes:

    Re: Arthritis and Bee Stings

    Bee Bliss, I got Mraz' book and found 4 trigger points on myself. My daughter's boyfriend came over to administer my stings, but it was later than they had planned and the hive was a little grumpy,...

    Trimman, I have Charles Mraz' book and read the chapter on trigger points. I found a trigger point on my hand and stung it just last night. It felt better immediately-this morning I'm a little...

    Re: how often

    Beregondo, do you sting directly on the knee where you're feeling the pain? I think that or my elbow will be my next spot.

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    robherc, I haven't even learned *how* to work my hive yet. Daughter's boyfriend is going to be my teacher. I'll take the occasional offhand sting and like it. LOL

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    Bee Bliss,

    I have a rice bag already that I use. Good to know it will help with a sting. The sting isn't unbearable at all-I expected pain and I got it. I was surprised at how intense it was...

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    robherc,

    You are not discount my "suffering" (how can I suffer when I willingly did this to myself? :), it's GREAT to know that others have had worse reactions and it's not a reason to stop...

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    Trimman, once my hands clear up, I'm nailing them again. :) I felt a little relief also, but want to get my tolerance up to more stings.

    Thanks for the info!

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    lenny bee, I don't drink, but I'm not crazy about taking Benadryl either-it kind of puts me in a coma. LOL, but when you say it "mutes" the effects of the venom, do you mean it lessens the benefit...

    Re: Reyah Stings me

    Omigosh, well maybe I'm just going at it backwards? I notice my foot didn't get nearly as bad as my hands. My hands were so itchy, I couldn't control myself at times and I'm sure that is why they...

    Re: Reyah Stings me

    I think they have improved my symptoms, but in reading about apitherapy, the usual recommended starting amount of stings is around 5. I'm pretty sure I'll have to work up to that amount. I believe...

    Re: Reyah Stings me

    Self-inflicted apitherapy. While my reaction is pretty severe, I experienced no anaphylactic symptoms. My daughter's boyfriend who is a beekeeper, said his father has had the same reaction to...

    Re: apitherapy anyone?

    I am VERY interested in Apitherapy. I got my own hive two weeks ago and had my daughter's boyfriend administer a sting each to both of my hands (arthritis in both thumbs). I had a pretty strong...
