For those who may be advised to take a biologic, today was my injection day ta dar.... I had my first injection in the morning.
The nurses were very nice - despite my reservations. They do a demo on how to use the pen, then it’s over to you! I wanted to get it over with and not deliberate. Best place he said tummy area (least painful spot apparently). In all honesty, there is a slight burn, sting but nothing to worry about at all, phew. It’s been about 6 hours and I have a slight dull ache at the top of my left shoulder that wasn’t there post injection. I can lift my arm, just aware of that nagging dull ache.
They have advised I must have the flu jab! Never had it before, this is due to the medication.
Also best to take before bed, doing that going forward. I aim to provide more updates as I go through this week on how I am feeling, pain management, side effects etc. Hope this was of some help to those starting.
Stay positive all.
