 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35801333
The bark scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in North America, and its venom can cause severe pain (coupled with numbness and tingling) in adult humans, typically lasting between 24 to 72 hours. Temporary dysfunction in the area stung is common; e.g. a hand or possibly arm can be immobilized or experience convulsions. It also may cause the loss of breath for a short period of time. Due to the extreme pain induced, many victims describe sensations of electrical jolts after envenomation.

Fatalities from scorpion envenomation in the USA are rare and are limited to small animals (including small pets), small children, and adults with compromised immune systems. Extreme reaction to the venom is indicated by numbness, frothing at the mouth, paralysis, and a neuromotor syndrome that may be confused with a seizure and that may make breathing difficult, particularly for small children. Two recorded fatalities have occurred in the state of Arizona since 1968; the number of victims stung each year in Arizona is estimated to be in the thousands. In Mexico, more than 100,000 people are stung annually, and during a peak period in the 1980s, the bark scorpion claimed up to 800 lives there.[2]

scorpion stings are not serious, they are often not even as painful as a bee sting.

I was bitten 14 months ago by an Eastern Brown Snake.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]
and this year by a red back spider.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]
The spider pain lasts 2 weeks.that is 2 weeks of throbbing and sweating.The snake bite itself doesnt hurt and it never injected venom so all was good there.

There hasn't been a recorded death since the fifties. I collect scorpions on a regular basis and had coffee with an arachnologist yesterday. Suck it up and deal. Unless you have an allergic reaction. If you have trouble breathing, call an ambulance. Otherwise just calm down. Your fine.

There are hundreds of bark scorpions around the world covering many genus'. There are six species in the USA. This article from wiki is weak. Try arachnoboards.

Re: my foot got stung by a scorpion do I need to go to a hospital?
I got stung by one here in Oklahoma, I thought I was gonna be fine so I waited it out. Then I started going numb all over my face and mouth. I went to the ER and they asked me, "well did you take benadryl?" I said no because I can't take benadryl, it makes my heart beat around 200bpms and it's even in my chart that I can't take that. The doctor comes back and says, "Well, looks like you're just having a reaction, scorpions around here in Oklahoma are not poisonous and the ones that are..well we don't have any antivenom for it anyway, I'm going to give you some benadryl." So I had to explain the whole I can't have that medication thing.

They ended up giving me a shot of prednisone and then sent me home. I go home, try to sleep and my whole face/mouth/throat and now my hands are going completely numb. I go to my doctors office and as I walk in the door they say to me, "Oh hey, we can't do anything for you here, so the doctor won't even see you, go to the ER"...so I go back to the ER and they gave me another steroid shot and atarax. I went home and was numb like that for three days, and eventually it just got better. It was awful.
