Insects or other poisonous bytes

Jan 10, 2018 12:04 AM

Hi I’ve been of this app for a while, just want to know if any of you had been bitten by spider, tick, scorpion, blue bottles or any other poisonous thing?
I have heard that this can contribute to Fibro or other pain related illnesses. Even if you got bitten as a child. Please let my know, maybe someone have more information on this?

I haven't been bitten by poisonous insects before. But tick bites can lead to Lyme Disease which can cause Chronic Lyme Disease which causes chronic pain and symptoms very similar to Fibromyalgia.

We have nasty fire ants here and when I get bit it increases my entire pain whole body. Mosquito bites do the same to me but it is even worse. I have found that if you put Absorbine Jr (used for muscle pain) it actually works on the mosquito bites great. A camping friend came up beside me and slapped some on I was shocked but it worked.

I've been bitten by more ticks than I can count since early childhood.. tested negative for Lyme but I've been on doxycycline for over a year for an unrelated dental issue (with no change in pain symptoms.)
