Luckily it didn't seem to effect me too badly because of adrenalin but still, it wasn't really a good idea and I wished I hadn't even bothered.

Not in my opinion but just letting OP know it is very common and not such a crazy out there idea. I don't agree with nearly anything hospitals do routinely but the majority of America does...
