I was holding the skin tight the whole time until the doc said to let go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter inserting the needle. I have not noticed redness at the site, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter the 6th month, I used to and it helped in choosing which leg to inject, but now...i can't tell.
8 Weeks ago I had br done - 565gr removed from the left and 785gr removed from the right. about two weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter the surgery I noticed a h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rd lump in my right breast top - half of nipple up and out - it's about 3.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.

I can certainly understand being gun shy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter that experience Kelly. Bravo! to you for going ahead with the next <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span>. You must be injecting 'naked' these days if you are pinching the skin, eh? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan>ever skin you are able to pinch together represents double the amount of skin + subcutaneous fat your needle needs to penetrate to deposit the Copaxone in the correct place.
the nurse told me 24 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> rub the lump to break it up ...and it works...... the lump and the itch go away.....

I hope you feel better soon...

Has anyone using Copaxone experienced after a few weeks of normal injections, large red bumped up hot itchy spots where they have done their shot that lasts at least 5-7 days in each injection spot? Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter my third week of using Copaxone and it occurs in every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> spot available and has been going on for 2 1/2 weeks. The Shared Solutions people aren't much help. Hoping I could gain some insight from someone here! any help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> greatly appreciated!
Please excuse if I jump aroung with thoughts my brain fog an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> very bad. I did my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> last friday and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter I went to pull out the syringe I noticed some liquid leaking down my abdomem. I inject in my stomach area. I think I might have hit a muscle , not sure. My sides are really getting bad.
Since day 1 of Copaxone, after EVERY single <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> every day I get a horrible huge painful lump that swells up, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> hot to the touch, hard to the touch, and becomes very very itchy. It almost looks like I am having an allergic reaction or cellulitan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>. I have tried multiple depth settings (making the dreaded muscle hitting man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>take too low and the million times worse itching when it's too shallow.
Jane asks the right questions. If you are doing Copaxone, site reactions like than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> are common. Be sure to rotate the injection areas and don't use the same spot again for several weeks. Massage the injection site (in the shower works best while your skin an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> wet) to help with the lump. You also may want to call the support nurse and talk about the depth setting on your autoinjector, if you are using one. Sometimes a change in depth will help with the lumps.
I had 8 eight surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> with cortan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>one. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injection</span> was not sterile. My ankle was not infected. I had the steroid injection with cortan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>one , because I had a ankle fracture and 3 operation. My ankle has 11 operation. I am walking only with orthopedic shoes. Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> was happened 7 years ago. Contact me.
so I adjust the jector at just a smidge above 4. I use the hot pad for 5 mins before injection, and cold pad after. It helps.
I get a little itching but no welt, no lump, no redness. I inject it a lot slower than the autoject so I am sure that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> helping. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> suppose to go in over 10 seconds but with the autoject it goes in in 5 seconds or less and leaving welts as big as my arm. So needless to say I am happy that than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> working for me. I will be much more comfortable doing daily shots without the site reactions. Well I just had to share!
landed on elbow...hurt pain ouch...shook it off...recovered. Since then I've had a strange h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rd lump (feels like bone) right on the top of my elbow.

if you have already gone to the vet, i would go back. recently my dog had a lump removed from her upper back. i had gone to the vet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter i noticed a lump.

Hello, I'm new to the group and thought I'd share my frustrations with you to see an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> you think.
