    Default B-12 Injection Pain?

    I get a B12 shot in my hip every two weeks as part of my program. I like the energy boost I get but I have horrible pain in my hip after the injection for days. It doesn't hurt or sting or anything when I get the actual shot but about an hour later ouch! I have alternated hips and locations and tried hot and cold compresses immediately following. Anyone else have this issue or know what I should do to help with it? When I asked the nurse that gave it she seemed dumbfounded by the question. I think she may have felt I was accusing her of doing something wrong but I am not sure. Any suggestions and insight would be greatly appreciated!

    She may be giving it too deeply into the muscle. Are you tightening your muscle when you get it? That can cause it to hurt also. I was getting them in my arm just because I don't sit on it! LOL! After your next one try massaging the muscle to help it distribute better, just don't rub the alcohol into the opening...ouch!

    When you get a shot in your hip you have to be really careful about the Sciatic nerve. Maybe yours is very sensite. You can take the injection in your thigh muscle too. I would rather do that than mess with any sort of back pain what-so-ever!!! Oh and you can get it in the arm mussle too. That is where i get mine, although sometimes it does make that mussle feel a little weird. Come to think about it, it hurts if I'm tense. Maybe you should ask for the injection in your arm, or thigh, or just try to relax completly! Hope this helps..

    Thanks for the insight everyone. I think I will try my arm next time and relax. Maybe I do tense before she gives it without even thinking about it. They never offered to give it in the arm but I will definately ask. Thanks again!

    Can you just ask your doc if they will give you a B-12 injection shot? Or did your doctor's recommend them to you?

    Mine is actually part of the program I am on. My family doctor would do NOTHING for me and as you can see from my weight history I was in need of help. This is through a weight loss doctor.
