Was it a bee?

I was doing my favorite loop on ky KLR yesterday. It's a bitchen one lane to the top of the mountain, and a dirt fire road down the other side to the valley. I get ready for the excellent 60mph run through the ranch properties and the winerys and with my lid open I get smacked in my right cheek. The pain was immense. Right away I stop, pull off the helmet and look into the mirror expecting to see a bee stinger stuck in my face. Nothing! No indication of what stung me and I'm pretty darn sure it was not a bee. I've been stung a plenty by bees, and this felt/feels nothing like it. There is no mark even this morning. The pain feels like I got slugged in the face. I poke my tongue against the inside of my cheek and it hurts like nothing I've felt before. Yesterday it got so painful(no swelling mind you) that I put an ice pouch on it and froze it into submission.

I'm looking for help here from people that have been stung by other kritters than bees. Can you try and help figure out what nailed me?

Dave, I think you got popped by a hornet, maybe one of those 919's.

Seriously; it must have been a wasp or a hornet. They hurt like he**!

I suspect time froze for hours while aliens probed you.
After the probing they punched you on the cheek, returned you to the bike and started time back up again.

I've heard of this sort of thing happening before. To Miguel once I think.

If you ride a bit faster, they won't be able to keep up. I'm referring to the aliens, that is.

If it was aliens probing you, then it follows that your ass should be sore too.

.. of course that could be for other reasons as well, so nevermind.

I got stung by a bee while riding about a month ago. I open my helmet as I reach a stop, ride for about 1/2 mile with it open and I see something, then feel a lot of pain. It was probably a hornet because I don't think they leave stingers behind, but it hurt alot. Got me about 1/2" from my eye; luckily I have to wear glasses.

The only difference is I did have a little swelling, but a nice red mark and the pain lasted for less than a day.

Ya, that's what I got in mind. Man, this morning my face feels like I did an endo in the dirt. It's got a bit of swelling, but feels like when the drugs wore off when I had my wisdom teeth pulled. It's making my workday suck.
I swear I caught the slightest glimpse of something black comming in fast! The burning was instantaneous.
I'll make sure to post up if anything falls off my face.

Serious answer.
you were probably stung by a hornet or wasp.
there is no barb, as the wasp stings not only to defend but also to prey on smaller insects which it eats.
there is a sac of venom and a hollow stinger.
the wasp does not release all of its venom in one sting and can sting over and over again.

the wasp sting contains a special chimical which acts directly on the pain centers in the nerves, so even though a smalle amount of venom is released it is usually more painful than a beesting but less swelling, and risk of infection from the barb.

quite possible that you were stung by a wasp since it is wasp season.
and if you were travelling on your motorcycle at the time even at low speed, the force of hitting you in the face caused alot of venom to be released.

or you could have been abducted by aliens, or gay, or both.

Sting

From the land of millions of varmits. Most bees leave the stinger( they fight till the death)! Red wasps and yellow jackets don't , and a red wasp in side your shirt can sting several times. The hornets we have can knock you silly, they keep their stinger, but, looks like you got stuck with a pencil point. There's no doubt when hit with a hornet.They will make you dizzy headed and mine turn into blue and yellow bruises over the next few days. A bumblebee is stout as hell, but, not like the hornet. Horse flies also have a good burn. I've never tangled with a scorpion,but, I'd imagine he leaves a nice sized hole too! I had to do the jitterbug last week, no place to pull over for about 2 miles. But, man I thought I was hit by the whole nest, all over my belly.

From what I remember Bumblebees hurt like a sonofa, I was 12 when it happened though. Didn't leave a stinger though.

There's now a hornet's nest in my hedges out at the edge of my yard as big as a basketball. I found out because I was trimming last week W/O a shirt when one got me just below the belly button. YOWWEE

They began to go after me as I bee lined (sic) toward the house.

I was stung four or five more times in the back, but nothing like the first hit.
This is the second time they've taken up residence in my hedges.

I suppose it's fitting that they are really "hornets" and not some sort of wasp.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

I think that there is a good possibility that it was a woodpecker or possibly you got ambushed by an operator with an airsoft rifle,

That doesn't look like a bad chimi.


My guess is the wasp or yellow jacket. I felt crappy and took a nap. My head still feels funny. I've been stung by up to 9 bees on the head at once, you know, multiple times in my life. Nothing punched me so hard so to speak. I think I need some habañeros.
