Air bubbles bad when going into vein...not muscle. Don't worry.

I didn't go into vein or muscle, under skin, although I have no fat on my stomach which makes it hard to pinch it up so I hope it didn't go in the muscle.

OMG Susan you sound like me. I have extra Xanax if you need one! I agree with Jeannie it has to be in a vein to be a problem. Don't worry but call your doc if you are.

yes, it is. I asked my sister, who has been a nurse for 20+ years, about this when I was giving myself shots. Bubbles are only dangerous if they're in the veins, etc. you're fine.!!!
