Bubble right after injection? Normal?

Hey guys, Is it normal to have the area where you injected look a little big? I injected in my stomach and the area pretty much looks like you can tell the liquid is in the skin, it forms almost a sort of bubble.

Is this normal? It may be just the first time I noticed it, not sure.

That is normal. The med is injected right under the skin and in takes awhile for you body to absorb the med.

Yup its normal, since it's created each injection you get will be a little bit different and have slightly different amounts of medications in it. I have had injections swell my eye, my leg, cause a flare and a large amount of inching sometimes. I have just come to the conclusion that you will know if something isreally wrong everything else is just part of the 'fun' of discovery.

My Advice: Find a good GI, Primary Doctor, Optician, and spouse and stick with them, don't be afraid of the Biologics and 6 MP's if you hit the disease hard at diagnosis you fight off the natural progression and have a better quality of life.
