I usually have been leaving the pens on the counter out of the refrig for about
20 minutes before I inject and it still burns a good bit. Last week I called the house on my way home and asked my wife to go ahead and pull the pens I would need out of the fridge. I knew I had to inject and dash back out, so I was in a hurry. As luck would have it, it took me an hour to get home....this meant the Humira was truly at room temp...about
75 degrees. I gave myself both shots in the stomach and there was NO PAIN....NONE!!! No burn, no sting...nothing. My next injections I will leave the pens out for an hour and hopefully it will help keep the pain down again.
