I sometimes get a burning sensation but it is dependent on where I inject. If I inject out towards my love handle area, where there is less fat, there is a higher likelihood that it will burn. For me, I think it depends on how close I happen to inject to a cluster of nerve endings.

Do you inject it cold, straight out of the fridge? That could be a cause. Large bolus doses tend to cause more of a burn too, or that injection site might be irritated

The only time my injections burn is if I've taken too many shots in that area or didn't disinfect the area first.
