Advice & Tips: If you are experiencing pain when injecting after letting the syringe get to room temp, ice the injection area before injecting for about 10-12 minutes and then inject. Also if you get localized swelling and redness right after, put the ice pack on the area you just injected where the localized swelling is for a few minutes. Also, when I first started Enbrel I never bruised but now on many occasions I do bruise from the injections. (just tiny bruises) Never inject in the same spot, I generally switch thighs each time.
