  • There are many possibilities.Most probably it is not the same as your sister, but get it checked ASAP.Better safe than sorry.As for injections and such, some people are sensative to the needle, but the worst one is only in for about 3 seconds and now they have an extra thin needle to hurt less (a lot more expensive - but the medical proffession do care about their patients).Also when the needle is out, "there is not the thing in there to cause the pain".So if you have 3 of the bad injections (total 9 seconds) and live for another 40/50/60 years, is that a fair exchange ?To be honest, I have seen two people who were hyper sensative, and they handled worse injection regimes than you are likely to go through.Warfarin now is normally small tablets and is nothing to worry about (even if you are addicted to cranberry juice).So get checked out ASAP to make sure you DO enjoy the rest of your life.
