I was walking in the woods when something bit my

I was walking in the woods when something bit my leg. It felt like a needle stab in a muscle. It still hurts and feels like a badly bruised muscle. It swelled, turned red and formed a west. There was no blood. The welt eventually went away but it still hurts 5 hours later. It’s a little warm to touch but I see no redness or swelling.

I have been smelling something like sweet wood, usually in the evening when I am resting in a very confortable arm chair, watching TV. It is NOT a burning wood smell, but rather a sweet, woodsy garden smell. Until yesterday, I only experienced this in one particular room, sitting, semi-reclined as described in first sentence. However, yesterday I was sitting in a restaurant when I had a similar experience. I might add that the smell is pleasant. I have never experienced it during the day or when I am in bed. I wear glasses for reading, have borderline high blood pressure (controlled by low dose med). I suffered from migraines most of my life - generally hormonal, food, sleep triggers. My migrains have subsided subsided during the last 5 years.

We have a wooden partition half wall type thing between our living and dining room. My 20 months old son was busted chewing on it this morning and he got some very small pieces off and I am pretty sure he swallowed them. I tried to sweep his mouth with my finger but was unsuccessful. I just got a very small piece of paint. The paint is low VOC and as non-toxic as we could get and the wood was raw and untreated, so I am not worried about the toxicity given the small amount he might have eaten. I am feeling concerned that he may have got a splinter in his throat. Even a small splinter can cause harm. I am wondering how do I know for sure? Should I be rushing him to emergency? It happened this morning and when he woke up from his afternoon nap he cried a lot and he usually doesn t. He is teething and he could have also not felt good for several other reasons so I can t say for sure it was or wasn t throat related. I have been watching him like a hawk all day and he seems to eat fine and doesn t seem to be having any respiratory problems. So, should I be concerned? If yes, how concerned (go to doctor immediately or make appointment tomorrow or go to walk-in clinic)?
