Default thought i was going to die

I was given Definity today for a stress echo. Within 90 seconds of receiving it I had an adverse reaction. First I started feeling a little funny, then I started blacking out. I was sweating, couldn't breathe and had severe pain starting in my neck and it crawled down my back and stopped at my hips. It was a very slow progression of pain but it was excruciating pain that I felt down to my bones. I couldn't breathe, they couldn't get BP on me and called the doctor in. When the doctor came in he said call the EMT and the nurse said I can't get a pressure. Then I started asking what is happening? and they couldn't answer me. It was the scariest I have felt in a long time. I really thought I was going to die. Then, within about 30 minutes I felt better. Within a couple of hours, I felt like nothing had happened. Yeah, I won't be getting Definity again!
