Concerning ..: The symptoms you describe are more suggestive of a severe reaction to bee venom and possible bee venom allergy. Because of the severity of symptoms, I would encourage you to seek input from your primary care doctor, as they may refer you to an allergist for bee venom allergy testing. Remember, your next reaction to a bee sting could be even worse if this is a true allergy. Best of luck.
