I would recommend getting it injected the first time at the doctors office. I agree, keep the shots out in room temp for 2 hours and ice the areas beforehand if possible. Also I would take a Claritin before doing it. Are you taking four injections? I just took my 1st four shots 2 weeks ago. A warning-it feels like a bee sting while it's going in so be prepared. (Or maybe I am just a wimp?) Good luck!
