When I had a c-section a few years ago, I had something very strange happen. After they put the spinal into me, I got extremely lightheaded and started throwing up. Something happened to my blood pressure because all the doc started shouting and they kicked my husband out. They kept yelling at me to respond to them, but I could not. After about 15 minutes, they finally got me stabile. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Nobody ever told me what happened but they told my husband they were "losing me".
