    Well, I have only had two and it seems the pain factor was different with both. When they did my legs the pain was tolerable, my wrists and forearms hurt. But when they stuck the needle in the back of my neck at the base of my skull I howeled like a dog. It hurt bad! :roll: I guess I'm a wimp...
