Hello Everyone,
 
I have a question,hopefully someone can help....I am fairly new to Lantus (about 4 weeks)...my dr just started me on Novolog this morning...both times with my Novolg injection I shortly got a sharp pain in the back of my head...i was just wondering if this is a side effect of the Novolog???  Thanks

avistan: Why are you and the manufacturer deciding what your dose should be, and when?

Why even considering taking their and own advice over your doctor?

Sorry, I don't get it...

Michaela, I don't use injections but do you think it could be that you're hitting nerve?  Have you tried changing locations for the injections?

Hi micheala - the short answer: no. Insulin does not have that kind of side effect. Sounds more muscle-related like stretching your neck while looking down to give yourself the injection (done that before :-)

avistan - insulin is measured in units not by weight/milligrams (mg). You would take 80 units of Lantus, not 80mg. 1 unit is approximately 0.142mg. Just want to make that's clear so there's no confusion to others. (BTW, using all caps is the equivalent of shouting plus it's hard to read :-)
