What does using the Epipen feel like?
I'm trying to gather some quotes for a project on severe allergy and tried looking through some older threads to find out how people described the Epipen injection. Didn't find much about it.
When speaking recently with people I've been told that "I was pretty scared at the time so I didn't really feel the pain much" and "I felt better so fast I forgot about the pain."
Can anyone describe how it feels, for allergic folks who have never had a reaction severe enough to warrant injection? If you're not comfortable posting on the boards, please e-mail me in confidence at [email]"firstname.lastname@example.org"[/email]. Thanks.
