I felt a bite!(2 posts)
I was taking an afternoon snooze, sort of half asleep. After about 10 minutes, my elbow started to feel a bit numb. I thought it might just be pressure from the way it was resting, but I decided to wake up and rub it, in case it was a bite in progress. Then I looked, and there was like a 3rd stage Nymph next to me.
I'm guessing what I felt was the anesthetic it injected, causing me no longer to sense the pressure against my elbow.
I think I've had this experience as well. One morning I was coming out of a deep sleep in bed and think I must have been laying on my back. I noticed a burning/numb sort of sensation on my bottom lip and chin and wondered if that is what it was- after all, they told me they inject you!
Got up and checked in the bathroom mirror. After a few minutes, either after my eyes adjusting and becoming more focused or the bite setting in, I noticed a couple faint red marks in that area. It's so disturbing isn't it? To know something had been on you.
