I've never had this happen. Usually it's just red around where the med went in, but this time it REALLY HURT, and within about 15 minutes it got red and splotchy and bruised.

It looks like the bruises from when I was in the hosptal and got blood thinning shots (they bruise a lot). Could scar tissue from those shots make me bruise now? Otherwise, maybe I hit a blood vessel?

Strange, I've been on Humira for over 2 years and this has never happened.
