Scar Tissue at Injection Sites?

I have been on Copaxone since diagnosis in Oct 2010. I only inject into my hips now due to bad site reactions everywhere else.

I have been solely using the Autoject, but have recently found that it is dispensing the medication SO slowly. I have two Autojects so the actual Autoject isn’t the problem. I try to vary where I inject on my hips but have definitely noticed that the areas are quite numb all the time.

Is it possible that the medicine is going in slowly due to scar tissue around the areas? It’s not a huge issue but I used to be able to put together the Autoject and have it all over and done with in a matter of seconds but now it takes longer.

I hate injecting!!!!!

I am on Copaxone also, I do notice sometimes the autoject does inject slightly slower from time to time. You might want to talk to a professional about this. I hate the shots too.
