Short term immune response just before infliximab infusion starts

at my last two infliximab infusions (I have had more than 30) during prep (when they insert the canula, and take some bloods) but before they start infusing the drug, I have had noticeable scratchy throat, a wee bit of difficulty in breathing, fast heart rate and feeling faint. It passes after a minute.

Anybody else get this ?
I have always prepped with 2 tylonol and a benadryl. Maybe that would help. I wonder why you are not getting the pre meds.
