Yesterday I had my 5th vitamin B12 injection and it really stung. The first ones I had didn’t hurt at all but the last three hurt a lot.
I think it is something to do with how fast they squeeze the injection into your arm. Maybe I’ll be brave enough next time to say the last ones hurt and can they go slower.

The last 2 months I have had the injections done by the nurse because I haven’t had anything to see the doctor about and she did them very slowly and they didn’t really hurt much at all. She said that the vitamin B 12 injections often hurt because there is a lot of liquid to get in. She also said that some of her elderly patients prefer to have the injection in their bottoms as there is more muscle to absorb the liquid and it doesn’t seem to hurt as much.

I had my first injection in my bottom today and it didn’t hurt half as much.
