For some reason the slow acting and fast acting insulin I take (Lantus and Humalog) stings like a bee sting with every injection. I asked my doctor who said it shouldnt hurt and they had me use saline as a test and if stung even more than the insulin. The sting will last about 3 minutes and then will go away but then will come back several times in the next few hours. When i first started using them it would cause a hive-like reaction, red, really hot and slightly itchy at the injection site. It no longer does that but still stings. I've called the drug company and they were no help. I am not at all afraid of needles so this isn't mental. Oral meds don't work for me so I'm not sure what to do, but since I have to inject 5 times a day, I am really getting depressed about it. Anybody have anything similar and did you get help?
