thanks yogaprof, it does feel good to be in control!
I had barely any pain, the needle is very tiny, I looked at one of them and it was small. But needles never really bothered me before so I might have a higher tolerance for pain.
ZenaWP, we iced mine for a few minutes, the ice was in a rubber glove and the site was red it got so cold and I could feel some numbness in my leg at the spot I iced when I pinched the skin. My nurse also said to put quite a bit of pressure on the skin since the force of the medicine going it will almost push it away. That seemed to help. Also, my shots seemed to take much less than 10 seconds. One was longer but the first one was real quick.
I hope Ice helps you next time! it did for me.
