Late this morning I was bitten by something. It was extremely painful and remains so but the pain is localized to the area. Other than pain there was intense burning, swelling, redness, and numbness intially. An hour after the bite, and perhaps due to the swelling, the itching started. The pain did extend to my knee but mostly stays below my ankle. The bite was at the bottom side of my foot. I stepped on something apparently. At first I could only see one mark but now I clearly see two marks: two fang marks possibly. Intense pain extends three inches from the fang marks. the swelling, redness, numbess, and itching have subsided but the pain has not. I've searched the net and asked elsewhere but haven't been able to positively identify what bit me. I have been previously bitten by a pygmy rattler and this experience was not the same. Can anyone with spider bite experience shed some light on this for me? Could it have been a black widow?
