In brief: Black Widow Bite

Local pain may be followed by localized or generalized severe muscle cramps, abdominal pain, weakness, and tremor.
Large muscle groups (such as shoulder or back) are often affected, resulting in considerable pain. In severe cases, nausea, vomiting, fainting, dizziness, chest pain, and respiratory difficulties may follow.
