Thanks to venom that is 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake a black widow spider bite does some VERY nasty stuff to one’s body.
Within 15 minutes you start feeling localized cramps. Then the venom starts hitting your nervous system and within an hour several parts of your body such as your thighs, back and shoulders start to spasm.
To make matters even worse the venom’s effect on breathing may make the use of painkillers, which you will desperately want, even more dangerous.
And it pretty much just gets worse from there. Basically, if you see a spider about the size of a paperclip with a red hourglass on it you might want to get the hell away from it asap.
