The doc (not LLMD)did my first shot fast. Was very painful. Had a knot for a week.

Had the second shot done by the nurse. She did it very slow per doctor's orders(llmd). Even more painful. I don't mind the prick of the needle, it is the pain in the muscle that is a killer. I am thin. Not a lot of meat on my backside. Maybe it will hurt either way? Starting to get sad this treatment may be very painful for me.

Guess my question is does it matter how slow you do it when you get pain anyway?

Hi Lovelabs, I still have a knot too from last weeks shot, I get another tomorrow. I have a diagram of where the shot should go on the butt. My doc described it as where the butt crack start at the top of your butt, over to the left or right of that about 5 or 6 inches, is that where you are getting yours? Mine hurts for a day but that is it. I have a bite when the medicine is injected but it goes away within a little time of the shot, I'm just really sore in that spot. I can't tell a difference yet in my issues.. i.e. ulcerative colitis, bloody stools, urgency, no formation of stool. I do seem to have more energy. Are you on an antifungal too? I'm on Diflucan.
I'm 5'6, 114-116 lbs, seems like I've lost some weight. I think because I'm on antifungals and have no desire for any sugar, cookies, cakes, breads either. Don't want to feed the yeast.
Do you notice a difference in your symptoms, what are your symptoms?
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I  Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics, not much better. Supplements: Threelac, multi, iron, very low yeast/sugar/wheat  No UC meds at this time. Started Doxy and Cedfinir too rough on stomach, started Bicillin injection 1/12/10, once a week of injections. Feel much more energy on shot.

they hurt for a while, then you really do get used to them. I have my hubby inject it quickly . Thats my preference. try using heat like a hot bath for as long as you need for the pain.

Hi therearemiracles- I have a LOT of pain in the area for about 2-3 days. Yes that is where I am getting the injection. I herxed bad after the first shot and then had a couple of really good days. After my last shot I felt a little "lymie". Definitly reacted with increased nerve pain, tingling, twitching, ear ringing, awful foot pain and burning. Even retained water. Just felt yucky. I don't feel as bad now, but not really good like I had those couple days last week. I still feel like my symptoms are all over the place. I think my fatigue is a bit better. I don't feel as flu-like now but I don't feel good either. I am pretty small so hoping these shots ease up with the pain. I couldn't even carry my purse on the side of my shot because when it hit my side my butt would hurt. Hoping for better days for all of us. I don't have a yeast problem but should cut out sugar anyway. Need to do that and try to exercise. I need to pull out all the stops to build my immune system up.

Merrygirl-I may have the nurse inject quickly. Had one fast and one slow. More pain with the slow one but no knot.
