[IP] update on "burning" sensation

A while back Shane was having a "burning" sensation during large
boluses. Many people offered suggestions, most of them saying that the
set was perhaps too deep and close to nerves or the muscle layer. As yet
another example of YMMV, after lots of experimenting, he has discovered
that he can avoid the burning by actually inserting the sil deeper! He
has also used the micros a few times and hasn't seemed to have this
problem with them.  Additionally, after 26 years of always injecting
near the belt line, he had built up some callouses under the skin in the
area. Inserting in this area was more likely to produce the burning.
Moving to a slightly higher area helped. Now the callouses are starting
to disappear and he can use that area again without problems. Away,
several other people mentioned similar sensations, so maybe someone can
find this useful.
