Hi there! I was diagnosed with PA 5 years ago and get my shots every 12 weeks.
Last week I went to get the injection as normal. However, I noticed that the shot was not as painful as normal - I normally feel a sharp scratch and then a more intense pain as the liquid goes in. I then noticed when the nurse disposed of the vial that there was some red liquid left?! This was over a week ago - I'm still feeling a bit rough (as I always do in the run up to my injection) and my tongue is covered in ulcers.
I'm concerned that perhaps the nurse didn't give me the full dose - she did seem a bit distracted. On the flip-side I may be just being paranoid!
What are your experiences of the shot? Is there liquid left normally? I've never really paid close attention before!
I'm not sure what to do - I can't prove she didn't give me the full dose and I'm not due another injection until mid-January. I was overdue by a week at the point of the injection as it is.
