I have recently started B12 injections at home as per my naturopath's instructions. I pick up the B12 and syringes and needles at a local pharmacy.
I just got some new needles, which turned out to be the wrong size for intramuscular injections for my weight. The pharmacist did not check the original prescription. And I did not remember correctly. Okay, so I used, twice now, a 5/8 inch needle when I should be using a 1 inch needle. I noticed 2 times now after shots that the site of the injection burns and itches. This has never happened before. My question: Where is this injection going? Into fat? Is this a subcutaneous injection? I am not getting the full benefit so where does the B12 go? Is this harmful to use the wrong needle size?
Thanks for any help. I am going back to the pharmacy tomorrow for correct needle.
