How a Jellyfish Sting Feels

We went to the beach today. It was fun. The sand was nice and we threw a lot of frisbee.

However, during my stay in the water, I was struck by a sting. I was standing in the water and all of the sudden I felt an intense shock to my ankle. I believe this sting to have been delivered via jellyfish. Now, I don't want to understate how this sting felt, so I'm going to lay it out like it was. Two words best describe it:

holy shit.

Aside from some internal rupture or breakage, this was the most intense pain I've ever felt. For about 5min, it absolutely burned like hell. Like something was continually stabbing me with needles. Thankfully it got better after 5 or 10min. And it's okay now. But seriously. It was the most intense non-lethal pain I've ever felt. Unbelievable.

(HINT: It's the red mark that looks like a Wu-Tang symbol.)

I've swam through a swarm of baby jellies before, but thankfully never actually been stung by one. I've heard the pain explained pretty much the same way you did, though. Did you make have to ask someone to pee on you??? Just kiddin.

I've heard that vinegar deactivates the nematocysts.

well it must be during those first 5min because i put some on later and it didnt do anything. course, after 10min the pain is significantly diminished.
