I've finally managed to see an MS nurse and actually got a suggestion which seems to be having a dramatic effect on reducing the length of time for the stinging sensation after injection. She suggested putting a gel pack into the fridge and using that after the injection. I had been using a heat pack but she said that was just making the pain last longer. It's still no picnic, the injection still hurts but the stinging doesn't last nearly as long. It's been such a huge improvement for me that I'd definitely recommend trying it out.
My nurse also mentioned not massaging until 24 hours after injection, which suits me at the moment since massaging straight away hurts!
