In brief: Variable discomfort
A scorpion sting may cause a painful, tingling, burning or numbing sensation at the sting site.
The symptoms may be mild. Rarely, however, a person may experience a more serious reaction including widespread numbness, difficulty swallowing, a thick tongue, blurred vision, seizures and difficulty breathing. These symptoms are considered a medical emergency and require immediate medical attention.
