  • I've had one bad experience and it was at a hospital. I went to the ER because of stomach pains, they gave me a numbing medicine that i had to drink through a straw, I still didnt know i was diabetic and this substance was very sweet tasting, 30 minutes later my sister was talking as i laid in the hospital bed waiting for the Dr. and i started feeling as if my blood stopped flowing, i got lightheaded, super cold, and dizzy to the point that I told my sister "i think im going to pass out" so she called the nurse and at that point i was jerking and shaking like i was having a seizure and i was having a hard time breathing, it was as if my throat was closing, the rest is all blurry and all i remember is after it was over i was still shaking a little and cold for about half an hour.
