If you have had an accident, or need to have an immunisation, or are going under anaesthetic, then you may need to get an injection.
Most people don’t particularly like injections, and this can make it difficult for the doctor to do what they need to do. If you are afraid of getting injections, you should try to remember that it is only a short moment, and that nothing bad is going to happen to you. Here are some other tips on getting your injection:
- Avoid looking at the needle. If you are looking at the needle coming towards you then your anxiety will spike as it comes towards you and this can make you panic, and may even make the pain much worse. Many people don’t feel pain immediately if they don’t know it has happened yet, and this works with injections as well.
- Tell your doctor you are concerned. If your doctor knows that you are scared of injections then they can help you through it and will be more caring and understanding towards you. They may be able to give you a little more time to get used to the idea before they go ahead.
- Relax. Although this may seem impossible, a tight, tense arm will feel more pain than a relaxed one. Put your arm down against the table and relax it as much as you can, looking away so that you don’t tense up as the needle comes towards you.
- Breathe deeply. Breathe in deeply before the needle reaches you, then exhale slowly as you are getting your injection. This keeps you calm and should minimise the pain.
