    B-12 shot pain and air bubbles in HCG shots

    Are air bubbles dangerous in either of the shots, particularly the HCG shots or do they just decrease the amount of HCG in the vial? I cannot, so matter how slow I go, not have air bubbles in the syring and tapping isn't getting rid of them. I get so frustrated that I've been giving myself HCG injections with usually 1 air bubble still in it. I haven't had any weird side effects and I'm still losing so is this a big deal?

    Secondly, are the B-12 shots necessary? I inject myself on my thigh and it so painful, not only while I'm doing it but my leg hurts for at least a day afterwards. Can I skip these? Does everyone take them? Will it decrease my losses if I stop?

    Are you inverting the vial and making sure the needle remains in the liquid when you're drawing you dose into the syringe? Do you have removable needles, if so it is on tightly? Are you injecting air into the vial to replace the liquid you're removing? Are you doing subq injections or im?

    B12 isn't necessary but is a benefit as it helps with energy and metabolism...

    I take sub q injections for the HCG and IM for B-12. I am doing all those things you suggest and the HCG needles are not removable. Are the air bubbles dangerous? Has anyone else experienced the pain I am describing with the B-12 shots?

    B12 isn't necessary but you can also give them with an insulin needle in the stomach and not IM. I have done that for 15 years and my levels are always above normal with that method. Make sure you are drawing the liquid in slowly. When you go too fast you get those bubbles.

    I just took my 3rd B12 shot this morning (I take them twice a week) and yes, indeed they are painful.
    Thankfully my husband helps me, because we are now doing them in the upper hip, which seems to not hurt as long (going in, it stings...and stings for about 1-2 minutes afterwards).
    Question: about 10 seconds after giving yourself the shot, I get a 'vitamin' taste in my mouth. Does that happen to you?
    Re: hcg shots, make sure not to shake the vial before you withdraw the liquid. Shoot 3/4 syringe full of air into the vial before you begin, then tip the vial upside down (with needle still inside) and withdraw this way. Be sure to handle your vial very carefully, not to shake. There are a few youtubes on 'how to' do this...that is how we found out.
    I am not sure what the implications of getting air injected into you, but surely it has happened to me too, without noticing.
    I hope this is helpful, I am new to this forum, actually new to writing on any forum, but while I considered this journey and while starting, I have REALLY utilized the information here, so I hope to give back somehow.

    You don't want to injection air bubbles on a regular basis. So you need to figure out a why not to get those. When you're injecting the air into the vial are you injecting slowly? If not that can cause a few bubbles. Tapping doesn't work at all? Are you tapping hard enough? I actually "flick" my syringe just out of habit and it works well.

    B12 can cause pain especially in those muscles you use often. I give mine in the hip.

    also hold your syringe with the needle in the air when you flick. And be patient. You have to flick a little while sometimes until it gets to the top where you can push it out.

    Last round, I mixed B-12 with hcg to inject subq, and that was really painful. I didn't notice any improvement with B-12, so I didn't add it for the next vial. It's not worth the sting.

    I've heard that about All Day Chemist b12. Is that where you got it? The stuff I am prescribed from Walgreens doesn't burn at all.
