Thanks for the query.

you might have got a bite during sleep.

Weakness cannot happen due to wasp bite but surely you will be troubled due to these bites which can cause weakness.

Take some steroid tablet this will help in faster healing.

also take antibiotics which will prevent infection of bite site.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
