I had a lot of problems with my leg injections. SS suggested I use a hot compress before the inj & then ice it after. That helped but after 2 years, I eventually gave up the leg injections. As per SS, everyone has their least fav inj sites & most favorable. If I could inj every shot in my belly, I'd be happy but that would eventually be problematic for me, I know! I have evolved but only after many attempts to make the leg inj part of my rotation routine. I now do my arms, hips & 3 belly shots for a seven site rotation. It's not the recommended rotation so I hesitate to post this but it is helping me stay true to the treatment. Hope tonight is better for you - do try a cool compress. If you opt for an ice pack - don't apply directly to the skin but wrap in a towel or something. I'll be rooting for you!
