Bewitched wrote:I started my first treatment of Avonex yesterday. I had a nurse come and assist me because I was nervous doing the first administration alone. When I started inserting the needle into my thigh, I was able to feel the needle sliding in (it did not hurt); however, when I got closer to the bottom, I felt the needle puncture through something. It made me kind of jolt. It wasn't unbearably painful, but I could definitely feel it. Was this the muscle? Is this a normal sensation? Or did I puncture something I shouldn't be puncturing? Help! I don't think anyone can understand what I am saying unless they are doing IM injections themselves.
