Thank you all for your good thoughts and suggestions. The pain is better today but still very sore and tender. Definitely a 72 hour ordeal.

Sbkangas5 I think I’ll need to look into those adult milkshakes!

eliza4one Yes, just deal. Watch for severe symptoms like trouble breathing and call poison control or head to ER but otherwise not really anything for me to do but wait it out. Not really red, but yes did swell. Scorpion venom is real!

MAsped I thought about calling doc but they would just tell me to do what I was already doing which was ice and Advil.

PPCDTeacher As long as I kept it iced and numb the pain was bearable. The minute my foot “thawed out” I was once again a huge crybaby. I actually was worried about getting frostbite at one point!
