Grettings all! Just wondering if any one else suffers a pretty high, although quick, burning?? I've been on it over 20 years and am just noticing it? Any theories?????? Thank you for any help!!
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.
The only time my injections burn is if I've taken too many shots in that area or didn't disinfect the area first.
When I bolus Humalog through my pump, it always burns, but I am a bit of a rare bird....anaphylacticaly allergic to all insulins except Humalog, and will get injection site hives with Humalog unless I am taking an antihistamine. Possibly a preservative allergy. :p
