Though Diabetic I have been diet controlled for years. While recently hospitalized for a non-related issue a nurse accidentally gave me 1000 units of Lantus IV. After several days in ICU I came home. Since then have had increased joint pain and wonder if they could be related. Thanks
Overdose of Lantus?

As a nurse, of course I'd love to know how she pulled that one off. I've never seen that much insulin used except to mix in an iv bag. I have no idea if it could cause joint pain after the fact. I would ask my dr about that.
