For those who give themselves b12 injection- where is the best spot to give them?  I always did my Humira on the stomach but not sure about where to do these?
 
Thanks!
Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa,
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hosptial stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis and almost didn't make it.
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck

My doctor used to give them to me, always in the arm. My sister, a nurse, taught my husband how to give them to me, also in the arm. I can't imagine that they couldn't go into the leg or butt either. They are just IM so any fleshy part would work.

I put mine in the upper thigh. To me that's the easiest site. I have no problems with them going there, no pain, and
you can sit down to do it :) I have mine weekly, as my levels still keep going down...

I've been trained to do mine in my side after I take a shower.
I like the idea of sitting down and injecting in the hip or thigh.

Our son's doctor used to prescribe them for him. (He has autism and b12 injections have supposedly helped many ASD kids, but not ours.) Here is a link to his VERY SPECIFIC directions on how to administer the shots.
