I ran out of medicine two weeks ago. Couldn't get into the doctor until today. Sunday was 66 degrees and sunny. The bees were flying.I put two stings directly on my backbone an inch apart.
Within 5 minutes, I was standing straight for the first time in two weeks. Put my walking cane in the truck and began checking hives. No more pain until yesterday. Now it's too cold for them to fly, so it's back on the pills I got today.

their stings are also great for joint stiffness in you hands. sometimes I expose one hand and sometimes the other when I do inspections. my hands are now much more flexible than they were a decade ago when I gave up remodeling.

Methinks iddee needs a year-round observation hive, for medicinal purposes.
I think the fact that bee venom works is amazing. I do not understand it, because bee stings make me swell up (a little) and itch like crazy.

Hobie, the swelling and itching just means that your immune system is running properly!
Jack, my belly swells up in the winter too. Usually because I do more sitting than at other times of the year. :D

So the two stings helped you for about two weeks then?
Feb 3rd 2011, 02:54 PM
No, the stings just happened Sunday. I had been hurting for about two weeks. By Tues. I was ready for another sting, which I didn't get due to the weather. I went to the doctor Tues. and got a new medicine. It seems to be working. I will likely get off the pills in Mar. or Apr. when I start receiving stings on a regular basis.

How great a factor is it- the location where you get the stings as opposed to where the pain is? Will a sting on your knee help pains in your neck for instance?

Omie, I think it has to be close to the pain, since he gets stung regularly and I've been a pain in his neck for about 55 years, :lol:

One way it works is to draw your body's attention "and anti-bodies" to the area. The closer to the pain, the better it works.

when you got pain every where /where do you start?my problem in winter I am not working bees and get real stiff joints hurt. seems any where I would get stung relieves pain thru whole body. longer you work bees it will take more stings to get relieve
:beg: :drinks: .

This is interesting as I was just reading a book about apitherapy using bee stings in a similar way as acupunture to stimulate pain relief as well as joint function.
For what ever that is worth to you guys.
