From this study (2 years ago):
Immediately after getting the shot in my upper trapezius area for a pinched nerve (C7 radiculathopy) I could taste the medicine in my mouth, and I involuntarily exhaled deeply. I could feel the medicine hit the bottom of my left abdomen wall. Immediately, my lungs and chest felt as if an elephant was sitting on them. I couldn't breathe, and the pain in my abdomen paralyzed me. I finally notified a nurse and they stuck another needle in me and gave me a muscle relaxant, and oxygen. Then the doctor ordered an x-ray on inhale and exhale. I needed assistance to remove my shirt to apply the gown for the x-ray. 30 minutes later I felt okay, but the pain was still there. I couldn't sleep at all that night, my heart was racing. The next day, my face and chest looked as it I had 3rd degree burns they were so red. 2 days later, I finally feel better.
