What Causes Pain In The Upper Thigh Upon Standing After Insulin Injection Administration?
What could this be?
How long does this process take?
dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but this could be due to a number of causes. The most common of which is lipodyatrophy which is abnormal response of the fatty tissues to repeated injectios. in this case the painful area is hard or rubbery to touch but not warm or reddish in color .. This is a self limited condition and will resolve in a couple of weeks . To fasten the recovery you can apply warm compresses twice wily and apply voltaren gel for the pain. however, if the overlying skin is warm to touch and red in color then this could be a sign of an infectionor even an abcess formation which requires an antibiotic treatment and pus evacuation if pus accumulate.. I hope you find this helpful. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion.
She gave me a corticosteroids shot( probenecid). It has not worked. I hav given myself very few shots in the thigh. Mostly abdomen or under the arm.
Urinating often but low weak volume.
Last night and day before, I had a lot of itching. Don't know why.
What are your thoughts?
Please see above messsage
Unlikely to be gout
Dear sir, the presence of a hard lump suggests that it is due to lipodyatrophy. Corticosteroid shot is unlikely to help that resolve unless it is injected inside the lesion then it might help.. Also gout will cause joint pain and crystal deposits.. It is so unlikely that gout causes a hard lump in the thigh.. lipodyatrophy is a self limited condition and usually requires no treatment .. it will take 2-4 weeks to regress and resolve. You should avoid injecting insulin shots in that place and try to always change the site of the shots.. I hope you find this helpful ..
