I have been giving myself Novolog injections for one week, One the second day I thought I came down with a stomach virus. I had dizziness, vomiting (severe) and diarrhea (severer). On the fourth day I went to ER. They could not really give me a explanation for my symptoms. I went home and the next day the symptoms were back in full force. I went to research Novolog and I stop taking it. My stomach is very sore from all the vomiting. I have a apt with my Doctor and NO Novolog will be in my future health plans.
