    Do you get bruises at the injection site?

    I am injecting into my side just above my hip and I switch sides each day, but I am getting these nasty bruises.

    Just wondering if anyone else has this?

    If I inject the same place even twice in the same week, it builds up a hard, sore area that takes months to go away.

    I rotate between stomach (needle in at a slant so you only go into the fat), hips, thighs and upper arms (my dh helps with these).

    I hit a tendon a few months back and quit doing them for a while. That was not pleasant.

    I will try your suggestions...
