So my endocrinologist put me on Byetta and I've been taking it since last Thursday. I've injected it fine and no problems, up until this morning. I injected it and noticed it hurt a bit more than usual. I took the pen out and it bled just a little bit, but I noticed this lump at the injection site. It was painful to touch, but not so bad. Then, as the minutes went on, I noticed the site getting black and blue. The lump has gone down, but the black and blue mark is getting slowly bigger and darker. Is this something that is normal or did I inject it somewhere I shouldn't have? It's still a bit painful now, but I'm wondering if it's one of those stupid mind tricks… lol. Has this happened to anyone??
