Re: [IP] more newbie questions!



I have always found my legs more comfortable.  Even when I was on shots.
The tape doesn't stick to my abs very well and when I exercise with it in my
stomach I get major lows from the absorption.
I have found certain spots on my legs that are more comfortable than others.
Just depends on where the muscle is.  If I do hit a muscle, I just wiggle my
leg around some before taking the needle out of the sof-set...this usually
works.

Hope it helped
