The reaction to my shot last week did not go as well as had been normal. I had chalked it up to not feeling 100% and being upset (which increases the blood pressure and just makes me feel a whole lot worse). Well today, I made sure a full meal was in my belly as per usual for a shot day. I went in feeling ok-ish, considering the temperatures have been yo-yoing here and of course that does NOT help one feel really well. I told the nurse (a substitute today) what the reaction had been and said that we needed to repeat the same dose...at least that's what my usual shots nurse would do. So today's shot was exactly the same amount as last week....and today's shot...well, it reacted the exact same way. Within 30 minutes of the injection, the site was extremely pink and already starting to lump up a little. Here it is, 6 hours later, and it has lumped up to 2" in diameter and has gone a nice shade of hot pink. Did I mention that it itches too? If a week's dose is skipped, then the same amount it used the next time you go in. I suspect that due to this reaction AND the fact I'm going not going to be getting my shot next week (going to be out of town), it's highly likely we'll need to take a step or two back *again*.
