It really stings going in. Not the needle stick, but the actual medicine going in. And on my thigh, I noticed the medicine pools right under the skin and stings even if you touch the skin right after.
So after all the experiences I read here, I did it in my stomach Monday night. And it really wasn't that bad. It still stung a bit, but nothing major. And I noticed it didn't pool up right under my skin. Seemed to spread itself out and go. And NO reaction site!
I loved it. Just had to share that I'm with you all that have found out the stomach is better.
And I also leave mine out for a while. But I don't have time to ice and all that, I found it really doesn't help the sting of the medicine going in.
