Common Questions and Answers about Epipen injection into thumb

epipen

it's a good thing i went to that class on tuesday to learn all about it - yikes!! i'm so nervous - not really about the whole thing - i can handle the meds with the epipen or smaller needles - it's just the progesterone needle that's huge and i'm petrified of - especially since my dh is going to have to give that one to me and what if he gets shaky?
I finally went to the doctor considering i could hardly talk, therefore unable to work. The doctor gave me a steroid injection called Kenalog and said the swelling should go away within 24 hours. The swelling did go down throughout the day, but the aching continued. I started getting painful areas on my skin( palms of my hands, outsides of my knees and my tailbone). My hips ached so badly i could barely walk, but i just gave it time per doctors orders.
This borderline fainting sensation lasts for about another minute before I break out into a sudden sweat all over my body. Within a few seconds I have sweat literally pouring out of me, my clothes are wet as if I ran a marathon or something. 4. After a minute of sweating I suddenly feel something coming out of my rear end. I try to squeeze it out and only a hard stool comes out. 5. The sweating stops and the stomach cramp subsides. I think everything is over and I clean up.
