Question: Lessen Pain from Humira Shot
|mayers05 - Tue Jan 18, 2005 7:44 pm|
Hello. Is there a trick to lessen the pain from a Humira shot? It's not a sting. Enbrel shots didn't do this. I tried doing it very slowly, but it doesn't help. Any other suggestion? Thanks.

Do you administer the injections yourself? If so, remember you should always position injections at least 1 inch from recently used injection sites and avoid injection into tender, bruised, red, or hard areas. When you administer the injection you may pinch the area up when giving the injection (I hope that makes sense) Also you may want to apply a cool compress afterwards. This may help decrease injection site discomfort. I hope this was helpful. Thank you for using http://www.doctorslounge.com
