    I have never inserted my sensor in my forearm. I use my upper arms. It is painful at times.

    I use the freestyle, it's pretty pain free most of the time.

    I put my Dexcom around my belt line. Never hurt. Never had an issue.

    Hello, I used the Freestyle Libre once in the inner upper arm but was painful. Since then I have continue to use it in the upper arm protected with an adhesive that keeps it secure and dried. I get it from Amazon and it's great!.
