My doctor lowered my dose way back and I had no cramps this time!! The first time he went back a couple levels, but I still got the severe cramping. He was not convinced that was the problem because i didn't have the symptoms at that level before?!? He went back a few more and it stopped.View Thread
I am having the same abdominal cramping within an hour after my shots, that is lasting for 30 to 45 minutes (intense for ~25 minutes). I was almost to my monthly dosage shot when it happened. I felt it burn when it went in and within 4 hours my arm was bright red (about 6" diameter circle), when I woke up at 5am, it had grown past my elbow from the back of my arm to the top of my bicep. By 4:30pm, it was 2" from my wrist. Spoke to the office and they advised me to skip the next weekly shot and they would take my dosage down a couple notches. Went back two weeks later, not too much swelling or redness, but I got the severe cramps again within the hour that lasted for 45 minutes. Visiting the doctor next week to see what he thinks. So glad I found this site, thanks. kathyView Thread
