After finding a suitable spot to inject myself I inserted the injection and as I was about to press the button to release the medication a sharp pain hit my right arm with a numb patch. I lost all power to press the button I could only touch the button no power to press down. I had paralysis of the right hand and arm overnight.
My partner helped by pushing the button down. I could not hold the pen or pick up the top and close the injector. I had to be fed yesterday. Today the power and sensation seems to be returning to normal but I have noticed if I use my right arm more than needed it gets tired and the sensation goes again.
I rang my GP and arranged a telephone appointment with him tomorrow, I was advised to attend the A&E but declined. If the symtoms don’t improve by friday I might have to pop down to A&E.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? How long do they last? How do you manage them?
