Mum-of-three thought she was ‘going to die’ after two minute ‘skinny jab’

Mum-of-three thought she was ‘going to die’ after two minute ‘skinny jab’

A mum was left 'mortified' after she payed £20 for a 'skinny jab', but was left feeling like she was going to die.

A newly single mum thought death was imminent after receiving a ‘skinny jab’ ahead of her 'hot girl summer' plans.

Stacey Smith, a newly single mum-of-one, has been left mortified after she paid a salon £20 for a so-called ‘skinny jab’, which left her feeling like she was ‘going to die’.

The 38-year-old described herself as ‘curvy’, and got the jab after wanting to feel confident in her bikinis and summer dresses.

She opened up about going through a recent break-up, and that she had also had her lips done and had botox.

Despite saying she is not an ‘uneducated’ woman, the mum-of-three said that she made the decision to have the injection in just 10 minutes, after seeing glowing transformations online.

She said: “Within ten minutes of me messaging her I went.

"When I went for that jab, no word of a lie, I was in that salon for two minutes.

"I walked in, she asked if I had diabetes and asked if I was on things she listed, I said 'no'.

"She said 'yeah that's fine', I handed her £20, she stabbed me in the stomach and I left."

Within a day of receiving the GLP-1-class shot, she started feeling unwell and was admitted to Chesterfield Royal Hospital in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

Two years prior to the incident, she suffered a stroke and blood clots on the brain.

Describing the day after her injection, she said: “I went to bed that night and couldn't sleep because of that feeling like I needed to burp, but the following day I started going downhill.

"I was really ill, I was projectile vomiting and had a pain in my head.

“I've never been that ill in my life and I don't ever want to be again. I thought I was going to die.

"The pain in my head, I'd never felt anything like it in my life.

“It was like somebody had taken a sledgehammer across my head.

"I couldn't get my head off the pillow and I couldn't have lights on.

"I've never ever been sick like this in my life, it didn't stop for days on end to the point where I couldn't get off the bed.

"I had to phone my ex partner and said 'I'm dying you're going to have to come'."

After her 13-year-old daughter had rang for an ambulance, Stacey was taken to the A&E department.

She added: “They gave me pain relief for my head and anti-sickness medication.

"I was hooked up to an IV drip and I had a suppository up my bum for pain relief.

“Doctors said it can happen [with this jab], that there was no quick fix and there's no reverse drug - it's just a case of waiting for it to get out of your system."

Reflecting upon the scary incident, she said she felt half to blame for doing something ‘stupid’.

Giving a plea to others, she warned: “I wouldn't recommend anyone try this, you may as well just sign your death wish.

"You might lose your weight but you'll be skinny in your coffin. Don't do it."
