In brief: Unheard of

Termites live in wooden tunnels and underground.
The only way to get bitten by a termite would be to dig with the bare hands into the center of a next so that the 'soldier' termites have a chance at you. To do this would be a little crazy and termites are not at all aggressive. You probably would experience a slight pain at the bite site and perhaps some allergic swelling.
