In brief: Possibly

The use of bee stings for reduction of arthritic joint pains is a folk remedy tradition and part of vedic and chinese traditional medicine, where it is called apitherapy.
Trials of bee venom have not established any consistent pattern of relief, but anecdotal recommendations abound.
