    diet pills and stroke symptoms

    This past weekend a friend of mine ended up in the hospital because she took two diet pills. a little while later she had tightness in chest, became numb from her left foot up to her head. so...her whole left side was numb! The docs gave her an iv but her vein collasped because of the no circulation in her left arm due to the numbness. She started talkin funny. but it's turns out that she had an allergic reaction to the pills....A normal allergic reaction is rash, hives, abnormal breathing etc..not all the symptoms of a stroke! I'm a little concerned about her, has anyone had an allergic like THIS from taking diet pills???

    Your friend's allergic reaction was severe, but not new. If the docs are saying that she'll be alright I'm sure she will be.
