Does anyone every feel like their body is for some reason HYPER sensitive when inserting an infusion set (maybe shots, too, but I never noticed it when I was on shots).
I just changed my site and it was like no matter where I tried to put it, it hurt like heck! I tried literally about ten different spots and went through two sets (and might be going through a third, the current one seems iffy)? I don't know if it's that some infusion sets are slightly dull, or if my body is just hyper sensitive sometimes. I talked to another Type 1 a year or so ago who said she gets the same thing and thinks it's high blood sugar. It could be, mine seems to happen mostly when I'm high, but it could also be that I'm mostly high when I'm changing an infusion set!
It's just so rare that I will literally take fifteen minutes to stick a set in. And it's not a psychological hesitation, it's just wherever I touch the needle hurts! Today I even entertained the thought of just not bothering with it and doing a shot to cover a few hours and trying again later. I've done that once or twice before when this has happened.
