So this has been my 5th or 6th month taking the Aimovig shots as a preventative treatment against chronic migraine.
Since I’m traveling this summer, I have to take the shots myself as normally my boyfriend does it for me. I hate needles and blood! 😆 💉
The shots are prefilled autoinjecters filled with 70g and I take two because one wasn’t enough.
You are supposed to inject in your stomach or thighs by stretching the skin flat with one hand and injecting the needle with the other by pressing the device into your skin at a 90 degree angle and clicking the top button until you see all the medicine has gone in (there is a small window and it takes about 15 seconds).
I was shaking but the first one didn’t hurt at all! So I was like ok cool. Did the second one on the other thigh, which hurt pretty bad and got all swollen after. Both bled for a couple minutes but not a lot. And that was it!
