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!
