Benepali injections

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, I've been using Benepali injections since last year and have always done in in my thigh. After reading on the forum that 1 lady always does it into her stomach and that it was less painful, I couldn't face doing it there, but today I gave it a try and couldn't believe how easy and painless it was than into your thigh. So thank you kind person, this has helped me so much. Can't believe I didn't try it before, instead of psyching myself up every week. I know everyone is different, but I hope it helps someone else. 😊

    Hi Linda

    I think it must be my post you saw, the first time I injected I used my thigh and almost

    cried it was so painful so that's how I decided to try the tummy. Glad you are able to

    ?inject with less pain.

      Hi Chris, thank you so much. I have dreaded doing the injection every week. I used to use the Methotrexate injections too, they weren't as bad as The Benepali. Your advice to someone else made me brave enough to try it. I was bracing myself for the pain and I felt nothing!! Must be the extra flesh around my middle, lol. Seriously though, thanks again. Hope this help someone else out there suffering in silence. 😊

    Hi Linda, I've been injecting Cimzia every fortnight for some time and I was told to do it first  one thigh, then the other, then stomach one side then the other. I tried the thighs but they were so painful I just did it in my stomach. I've now been put on weekly Actemra injections so confessed about only using my stomach and my Rheumy just shrugged, she said I could use my arms if I wanted too but I don't think I'm game for that either.

      Hi Mary, I was told to use thighs or stomach, but alternative each week. I can't believe how painless injecting into the stomach is after using legs for the last 18 months. Yo are right, the legs are painful, used to psych myself up every week. I don't know why, but the thought of doing into by stomach was a no no, don't know why. Glad I tried it. Thanks.
