PHOENIX — A woman from Spain died after having an allergic reaction to an acupuncture procedure where bee stings are used instead of needles.

The 55-year-old patient was receiving a treatment to relieve tight muscles and stress, according to a case study in the Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology.

However, the session quickly went south when the woman “developed wheezing, dyspnea, and a sudden loss of consciousness immediately after a live bee sting.”
