I had three of the shots and three different experiences. The first one wasn't so bad, the second hurt more and the 3rd was so excruciating that I never would have gone back.

I had a series of 5 Supartz injections in both knees at the same time about 1.5 yrs ago. They helped a lot and did not hurt at all. I did note, however, that my knees felt better after the 4th round than they did the 5th. If the second one was painful, please discuss it with your doctor before having another.

I got my 3rd of 5 this past Friday. Same Doc as the 1st one. Didn't even hurt, just a filling sensation. Different Doc for the 2nd one, he just jabbed and left. LOL
