I experienced my first bark scorpion sting this weekend on my toe. It is an experience so unique and hope to not be repeated. Intense hot, electrifying non-stop pain with rolling waves of increased pain. Inability to move my toes. A completely numb foot and lower leg. Involuntary muscle spasms in my calf and thigh.

We called AZ Poison & Bite 1-800 line and they were fantastic. After they told me what to expect, 6-12 hours at least of pain, and possible spread of pain through all regions of my body, possible numb throat and involuntary eye movement, they just said take a pain medicine, cool compress, and sadly wait and ride it out.

I never take pills but I did take 2 ibuprofen. They did nothing. Next I texted my oils friend and she recommended my husband rub from my calf downwards a blend of Lavender and Purification. She said Copaiba would be best but I didn't have any. I had Thieves which another reviewer said worked but she said it would be too hot on my already blazing hot foot. So we did that every 15-20 minutes for hours. I have no point of reference, but I can tell you that my pain stopped at hour 5.

I slept and woke up with no pain, and just a tingly pins and needles feeling. The poison control said would last for days after, so that was expected.
