Bit By A Spider And Now My Left Arm Is Sore
Possible spider bite? Blister on arm, area is red around the blister, arm is sore, mild discomfort. Maybe hobo spider? Go 2 ER now to reduce damage?
Probably not: There are hobo spiders in WA. If they ever bite at all, the result is much less severe than brown recluse. Expert opinion differs as to the existence of any bites by hobos.

Again, assuming that's true, as long the soreness is mild you could still weight train, just listen to your body. If whatever exercise you are doing is really exacerbating your pain, stop. ...Read more

Spider bite: The most likely cause of this problem is a spider bite. While Prednisone may cause you to bruise easily, it will not cause a pool of blood as you describe. Look for a bite mark. Also, make sure that there is no associated infection, as your medicines make you more succeptible to infections. ...Read more
