I know how you feel. I have had a very bad experiance with needles when I was little so I am like terrified of getting shots. So last Wed. was probobly one of the worst days ever for me. I had to get a blood test (like 17 tubes) and two shots. It didnt hurt at all but as soon as I thought about it it did hurt. As long as you keep your mind on some thing else like wiggling your toes, tapping your foot, or licking a ****** it wont hurt and it will help calm you down. For most people the pain is just in their head. They think it hurts so to them it does. As long as you keep yourself distracted you'll be fine. Good luck
I know this sounds crazy, but it works for me: ask the doctor to give it to you in your (bottom).There is alot more muscle there and you wont be able to watch. It will pinch a little but it is way better their than in your arm. The main thing is to stay calm and relaxed if you are tense it will hurt a little more. I have been getting shots alot for my head aches but if you stay calm everything will be ok.
I have had allergy shots all my life. The past three years I have had to have four shots every month. Two in each arm. But I try to think of people who have it worse than I do. People who are diabetic and have to give themselves shots daily! Yaaa... it hurts a bit.. I just look the other way.... take a deep breath and exhale slowly.. and know it will be over quickly!
By the way... this is the DR office I bring my extra webbie plush to ( no tags). They use them to distract and reward smaller children who have to have allery shots or testings.
Ask if you can lie down. Maybe put an ice pack on your arm before the appointment to numb it. I would do this when DD was a baby. I am the biggest sissy in the whole world. DD was a 100 times more brave when we both got our flu shots so don't feel bad. ((HUGS))
Just think, once this is over, I won't get this infection, that disease, that sickness, (whatever you're taking the shot for). It's only for a short time, and it'll be over soon. It's painful and scary now, but it'll be over. I just have to get through it, etc etc. Not thinking about the pain doesn't help. So try this, and I hope it helps with your phobia to shots.
