The Black Widow bite symptoms

The symptoms of a black widow bite cannot usually be detected at first, since it takes about forty minutes for you to feel the first symptoms. As mentioned before, some people feel a sharp, shooting pain when a spider bites them, but some do not feel anything at all.

The most important thing to be concerned about is the venom itself, and how it may, or may not, affect your entire body. The pains usually move towards your back and the abdominal area, since the venom causes muscle spasms. Nonetheless, these are not the only symptoms since the venom may cause restlessness, nausea, increased blood pressure and fever.
Black widow bite symptoms are not usually long lasting and they should be gone in a matter of a few days.

Spiders and symptoms of a spider bite

The most dangerous spiders are those who can transfer enough venom to harm the bitten person with one single bite. Non poisonous spider bites are followed with symptoms which last for five to sixty minutes. Poisonous spider bites, on the other hand, are often painful for longer than twenty four hours.
