My diabetic counselor advised me to prick my thumbs. I'm right handed so I've been pricking my left thumb so many times. It's sore and hurting :( I tried to prick my right thumb and I seem to get little blood and doesn't work for testing. I've tried massaging the area and squeezing downwards and up and not enough blood is coming out. I then tried my index finger and it hurted so bad!! Mind you, I am a newly diagnosed and the depth is only at a 2 for my thumbs and I tried a depth of a 1 for my index finger and it hurted so bad. Where and what do you recommend me to prick or what are your methods for less pain?
