Default Lantus side effects

Have two boys, age 11, on Lantus at night for about a year. Recently one has been having chest pain soon after injection. My other son seems to have no reaction to Lantus. Has anyone found, or has their doctor offered, information regarding what seems to be a rather bad side effect of this insulin? Have informed the group of three doctors, spoken to nurse practitioner, diabetes educator, and dietician. No one owns up to chest pain as being a possible side effect and they tell me to see our family practitioner. After reading all of the other incidents on this site about chest pain, numbness, etc., I wonder how dishonest the FDA, food industry and pharmaceutical industry really are. If Lantus is not good for diabetics, how many billions do they feel they must have before they recall it (remember VIOXX, Celebrex, etc.).
