Forgotten what side to inject this week! Help!

I am currently on the old Methotrexate but as I pretty much have lost my compacity to remember the slightest thing since being on Crohn's and getting extreme fatigue, I have forgotten what side of my tummy I injected in last week.

Is there any weird side effects from injecting on the same side as the week before? Will I be okay? Please help!!!!!

Yours faithfully

A very confused Glaswegian lass.

It doesn't really matter what side you pick this week if you forgot. But if you don't want to put it in the same side you can put it in your thigh. I find it feels better in the thigh
