I've had a fair few as a child from serious flu's that got worse being diabetic to being up all night vomiting, where I get to the point I'm literally vomiting air which causes me to choke and starts to suffocate me.
So post your best/worst stories!

When I was first diagnosed as Type 2 my doctor put me on Januvia, metformin, and lisinopril for blood pressure. I had EVERY side effect imaginable, and vomited constantly, nausea waking me up in the middle of the night. I challenged my doctor and quit taking Januvia, and switched to metformin and glimepiride. I also changed doctors, and finally got lisinopril switched out for losartan for blood pressure, and I'm doing better.
