- 0Jul 2, '07 by GeminiTwinRNI give myself IM injections of B-12 every month, up to 2cc's. I use a 1" 23g needle and the injection is in the thigh.
I don't necessarily agree that it's a painful injection. The only pain I feel is when the needle pokes the skin. The actual fluid isn't particularly thick or viscous, so I'm not sure why it hurts.
Also, I don't inject slowly, either.
