I have been using Depo for 3 almost 4 years now, I have always gotten them on time. This time she popped a blood vessel when she stuck me in the arm, which never has happened before. Since the shot I have had a lot of numbness and tingly in arms and legs. A lot of it and it comes on sudden and random. Its getting more frequent. Should I be worried?

It will hurt a lot less if given into the buttock. It creates a reservoir within the body, and so is best put into the fattiest area possible.
It's possible the needle has hit a nerve, but it's equally possible that the tingliness is something totally different. I would speak to your doctor about it, to be safe.
