Default Allergic reaction

I was given definity today for a stress echo. I did not feel any adverse reaction until approximately 20 minutes after it was administered through a vein in the back of my hand. I was on the treadmill and mentioned that I was starting to itch in my groin and back. My face and eyes then began to swell. When they noticed this the staff had me lie down and administered benadryl and called the doctors in. My blood pressure had dropped and I began to get the chills. The doctors then began to increase the rate at which the drug in the IV was going into my body. I did not know what was going on the entire staff seemed very concerned and not clear initial on how to treat this reaction. After I was stablized I was sent to the ER and observed for 6 hrs and discharged.
