    I had a collapsed lung when I was 17 yrs old, given Nubain in IV for pain while having a chest tube, IMMEDIATELY had an allergic reaction with severe itchy nuerological abnormalities, convulsions and a seizure, took the nurses hours to figure out what was wrong with me. Was told I was allergic and to never use it again. Aweful experience!
