Ive only been stung 6 times and it was all at once on both hands (gloveless) when inspecting a feral hive that had gone queenless (didnt know until further inspection after stinging!). As much as I hate the hot lava going through my veins and the swelling of one of my hands to the point where I couldnt make a fist, my ring finger on my right hand (which has bad circulation at the tip) actually felt warm to the touch instead of cold! And my finger joints felt really good as well!! However, my finger went back to "abnormal" after a week or so, which sucks. Thank God I live in the warmer climate of California, because every year when I go Goose hunting up in Oregon and the temps are in the teens or lower, that stupid finger tip gets a minor case of frostbite and hurts like heck for a few weeks!!
