When I first started on insulin about 5 years ago, I thought, wow, this is easy and pain free.
I didn’t feel the needle, the injection was smooth and painless, and I wondered why anyone would object to insulin.
BUT, . . . there are times when the needle isn’t pain fee. There are times when the injection burns. There are times when there is much resistance to the plunger.
Oh, I guess I should mention that I use my stomach and rotate locations. I inject several times per day.
Anyone else experience these things when injecting insulin? I have no idea why this happens at times and other times it is as I described as painless, and smooth.
The resistance feels like I am trying to inject into a rock, so I am forced to pull it out and move to another spot close by the original stick.
Why does it burn on occasion?
Why am I skin sensitive to the needle some days?
