Infrequent, but: Injection site reactions can be seen, usually just reddening, but may see more intense local reaction. A less frequent injection reaction involves throat and chest pain, flushing sensation over face and chest, tingling, and generalized malaise lasting several minutes. This is not a heart issue, and turns out to be quite benign but can be very scary.
