Date rape drug through a needle? watch

    I went out last week and woke up the next day quite ill. I'd only had three glasses of wine, and they were with me all the time, so it's highly unlikely they got spiked. However, I also have a huge bruise on my lower arm, with a scratch and what looks like a pin prick. How likely is it that somebody could have tried to inject me? I was being sick all day afterwards, but surely I would have noticed somebody getting me with a needle? Three glasses of wine is really not enough to make me unaware of anything and I'm terrified of needles, so I would have gone crazy if anyone had come near me with one, plus I was with my friends all night. Has anyone heard of anything like this happening before?

    On the off chance that it did, I'm going to get a blood test done. I've heard of the 'window period' for HIV. Would it show up after 10 days, or will I have to go again?

    you would have noticed someone jamming a hyperdermic needle into your arm even if you were really drunk, probably alchol poisoning.

    Hmm, if you were drunk enough you might have enjoyed the idea of doing drugs (not saying anything, but I know a few who would) but I'd say you might notice. Worth a check... no clue about HIV

    I wasn't drunk, just a bit tipsy, and I'd never do drugs. My friends would never have let me.

    Would you really be able to see a pin prick? What exactly does it look like?

    two things could be unrelated and you might have just been ill??

    I have a huge bruise which contains a scratch plus one spot which has blood in it. I'm hoping I've just fallen, but the bruise looks like one that people get when they've had a drip put in. It's a very weird place to try to inject someone though, because it isn't near a vein!

    Ask your doctor for an opinion, they'll probably have an idea if it is, and if it's not, they'll probably have an idea of what could have caused it.
