The general conensus is that the phenomena you describe is cause by a  
reaction to the insulin-analog you are using. Most people report that 
this disappears when they switch to the other brand which has a 
different molecular structure. If you look at the ABOUT page of the web 
site you will see that the baseline numbers from Nov 2001, when only 
one insulin-analog was available, show that approximately 6% of insulin-
analog users suffer from this condition. The archives are full of 
reports of this and the subsequent resolution.
