This may be occuring if you are giving your shot in the same area over a long period of time.  I had this in my upper abdomen and had to stop for a year giving shots in this area as I too either could not even get the needle to go in, my insulin did not seem to work or the needle had trouble coming out.

If you give your shot in the same area, you develop some kind of deposits under the skin and this is what is blocking your needle so you need to stay away from those area for a while.

Hope that helped.
