Taking my lantus used 2 hurt me, but I was told using longer needles would help and they do hope this helps

I changed the size of my needles and that stopped it I start on 6mm now I'm on 4mm and don't pull it out straight away it helps a lot.

Always stay dead relaxed, and I usually use 6mm but 8mm seem to be better and smoother injection :)
