Disturbed has reportedly cancelled two weeks of their U.S. tour dates earlier this fall. David Draiman fell ill with what was reported as a “throat infection”. David told Metal Hammer magazine…

“I’d been having allergy shot therapy, and in the middle of the touring cycle an injection that was supposed to be administered at 0.05 of a particular concentration was injected at 0.5 — 10 times more than I was supposed to get.

“I had severe anaphylactic shock. Airwaves constricted, blood pressure plummeting. I was on oxygen for hours and still my blood pressure was way, way low. This was the day before we were supposed to play three shows in a row and the residual inflammation that came from the allergic reaction meant that I couldn’t heal from it in the middle of the touring cycle.

“My vocal cords were pretty beaten up: seeing them on a stroboscope was pretty scary. They told me if I sang I’d be risking permanent damage.”


Someone Tried To Kill Disturbed’s David Draiman?!?


David Draiman was dosed, motha fucka
You may recall a bunch of weeks ago that Disturbed were forced to nix two weeks of gigs after singer David Draiman came down with some sort of “throat infection.” Now, we are finding out that David sort of skirted the truth about the whole throat infection thing. It was more of a throat inflammation.
Of course, no one tried to kill David Draiman…at least not to my knowledge. I was just joking about that. Or…was…I?

Draiman told Metal Hammer that he was receiving “allergy shot therapy, and in the middle of the touring cycle an injection that was supposed to be administered at 0.05 of a particular concentration was injected at 0.5 to 10 times more than I was supposed to get.”

Draiman went into severe “anaphylactic shock. Airwaves constricted, blood pressure plummeting. I was on oxygen for hours and still my blood pressure was way, way low. This was the day before we were supposed to play three shows in a row and the residual inflammation that came from the allergic reaction meant that I couldn’t heal from it in the middle of the touring cycle. My vocal cords were pretty beaten up: seeing them on a stroboscope was pretty scary. They told me if I sang I’d be risking permanent damage.”

Dude…that’s fucking no fun. What the hell? I wonder if Disturbed’s crew “took care” whoever administered that injection. Maybe arranged a nice little accident…you never know. But that’s crazy, people. What the fuck? Just goes to show you that it’s never just an “infection.”

Anyone who made such an idiotic and dangerous mistake should be dealt with, though something tells me that the Disturbed guys aren't very mafia like. lol

Okay....well I was looking through pictures and found a few of David with his condition called "Ceder Fever"..Seriously...it's not easy for him since he lives in the cedar fever and sinus infection capital of Texas but to anyones judgement on treatment from Doctors they shove injection therapy treatments at anyone who suffers and you hope for the best that the crap works.I'm not surprised about the over dosing....but what I am surprised is that there should be some sort of law suit involved and what did happened should be kept under lock and key.My opinion overworked Doctors and nurses cause negligence...and not to really get into something that happened to my poor mother before she died...the nurses moved my mom from one bed to another in the hospital and they dropped her and she died with a broken leg...anyway back to David here is one pic of his condition

Is this about the old throat infection? So this isn't happening now, they just found out what caused it, the infection in september or whenever it was?! Please someone tell me he is okay and no going through this again, that this isn't a new one!

Poor David looks like hell in those pictures. That really sucks.

I've never had cedar fever, but I've heard of it and it can really suck.

I'm just glad he's back to normal now- well, as normal as he can be, anyway.

When the article from Metal Hammer was used as reference for an article on Blabbermouth.net, the comments were absolutely brutal! Like these people wanted David to die. This was something that could have ended his career... even his life, and these clowns on blabbermouth are making these crude, insensitive remarks! It just floors me! There are some bands I don't like, but I don't wish the members of those bands any ill will. Why don't people fuckin' get it?

All I can say is that karma is one tough bitch... they'll get theirs.

Meanwhile, it's great that David is back 110%! Can't wait to see him and the band in San Antonio in February!

Fuck them bastards, people all over that blabbermouth site are fucking cruel. They have no respect and never will now if it were to be a loved one of there's they wouldn't have anything but a little respect for them. Humanity is a fucking disease that i try not to contract. It really surprises me how low some people can be but when it's just about everywhere it's just the same ol' but i'm happy that David is doing better now and hope there's no more problems.

Allergy treatment injection overdose... ah, sounds a typical day at the doctor's office. Those who are dumbfounded that this happened, I just wanna say: I'm not surprised. Most doctors are so drug and money-oriented and so careless that they do this kind of shit and rarely apologize or repent for it. You should check out the doctors where I live; I could tell you some horror stories and they happen on a weekly basis. Just makes me SO glad that I haven't seen an MD in over 12 years!
What pisses me off to no end is that they had the "oops" moment with David. I could beat the fuck out of those morons. Hopefully he does attempt a law suit for malpractice.

Ceder Fever? Never heard of that one before. Is it like a Hayfever type response? Cause if it is, I can totally relate to that agony in some way! His bloodshot eyes sure show that his body was trying hard to fight that off. Poor guy! :(

And those heartless fucktards on blabbermouth can kiss my goddamn ass. I've seen a few comments where they're basically saying "He's getting what he deserves." Well all I can say is, "One of these days, YOU'RE gonna get what YOU deserve, and we're gonna be laughing at you, you assholes!" You never wish someone ill or even dead. That's just spineless and malicious. If they or someone close to them got sick, they wouldn't appreciate it if they got the same slander.

Okay... I think I'm done venting... *takes a slow deep breath*

I'm glad that David recovered from this okay. Hopefully this doesn't happen again. Cause if it happens again and he doesn't pursue a lawsuit, I think us fans are going on a manhunt. xD
