Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
I am not an allergist or anything, but I was allergic to bee stings after getting 20 or so stings one time. Benedryl was a great help. I went into full anaphylactic shock a few times. The symptoms are similar to what you are describing but I also had hives all over my body, swelling of the lips and throat, and other symptoms. I was tested by an allergist who confirmed that I was allergic. I would strongly recommend that. It sounds like your symptoms might be on the edge between a normal severe reaction and an allergic reaction. I have been through almost 5 years of treatment and now get the equivalent of 2 bee stings every month with almost no reaction at all. Oddly, I haven't been stung since I started the treatments, but I would get this checked out by a doctor. The full on allergic reaction is not fun at all.
My bees suck! Maybe you're just allergic to my mean bees! lol
That would be nice! haha! We will see what the allergist says :/
I've attached a photo from one of my bee books that describes normal and allergic reactions to stings. You may want to wear more protective clothes and gloves. My reaction to stings tended to show less swelling and itching the longer If been a beekeeper.
