Injection sites back of head and shoulders
What did it feel like? My doctor told me it would feel like little bee stings. Well I’ve only had big bee stings so it was much less painful that I thought it would be. The needles are tiny, but the solution does sting a bit, and some of these areas were pretty sensitive on me, but it wasn’t bad. I’d do it again. : ) It went really quick, my doctor really knew what she was doing, just a few minutes and it was done. I spent much more time waiting on her to come in the room. : )
So like little bee stings, yeah, but remember I got stuck by the whole hive! hahaha. No…I promise it wasn’t bad at all, it was nothing like some of the other procedures I’ve had!!
After I got the Botox injections, I also got an injection for the migraine I had right then. (one that had been going on for nearly 2 weeks) So after my visit we got a bite to eat and I came home and slept for 6 hours! What a way to spend the day…a good way actually. The shot in the butt helped my head pain, and he shots in my head will hopefully help me to have less head pain, and I had a good 6 hours of sleep straight through. I did feel like I wasted the day, then I thought, “What else would I have done?”
Oh….I forgot the funny part of the story! But beware…this is Way Too Much Information!
I had been having cramps and all the symptoms of having a period, with no period, for over a week. That morning I woke up and felt fine, I thought….hmmm, guess I’m not having a period this month. (I am 49, I’m expecting to start skipping some periods) So I got dressed, and left for the doctor’s, we get half way there and I’m hit with a horrible cramp. I thought….no, no, no…I didn’t bring a thing. Of course, when we got to the office I go to the rest room and yep, I started. Well, If you are a woman, I’m sure you’ve all had this happen at some point in your life, and what do you do? No dispenser on the wall….so…Toilet Paper to the rescue…and pray it’s good enough for the time being. So I went and waited and waited for the doctor, and had all my shots and 2 hours later we were leaving…and I forgot, yes, I forgot about my makeshift protection. So we go out to eat lunch, and go home and I walk in the door and remembered. How could I have forgotten?….well the shot could have had something to do with it, but, but, ewwww. Luckily, it wasn’t that bad. But I will never again assume I’m not having a period!! Lesson learned!
