    Swollen legs on test/deca, anyone experience this


    So Im two weeks into this dbol/test/deca run, hitting 250 test e and 200 deca per inj, twice per week. Ive alternated between left and right quad, and right now my quads feel like they are bruised and knotted, swollen. My knees are also swollen and there is alot of pressure there making it very painful and uncomfortable to put pressure on them.

    Any ideas? Thanks. Let me know if I left anything out that you need to know.

    whats the resolve. use different locations so that the inj are not as close together? this didnt happen from my last test cycle, could it be the deca? or the combo of the two, im also using more than the first cycle, and that cycle was quite some years ago.

    Im also using sites in the quad other than the upper outer quadrant, could that have an affect?

    Well I'm assuming its not the injection itself if ur knees are swollen it rhe deca but if its the injection site then try warming the oil before injecting and inject very slow take like 1 min per cc I know that sounds excessive but it works. When you inject into a muscle the oil makes that muscle expand if u inject to fast the muscle expands to quick get swollen and sore you can also try massaging the site after the inject helps with knots and yes I wouldn't inject the same site more than once a week

    First week and a half was fine, these symptoms started after the first week and a half. Right now the swelling has gone down. I do notice bloat in my legs ankles and feet that i dont see in my upper body though. in my upper legs I see blotchyness.. Almost looks like skin irritation. Its also itchy.

    I tried warming up the vials prior to inj this time, and instead of dead center quad used upper outer quadrant. Lol ouch pain today(day after pin) Feels bruised and tiiiight. I'm using icy hot to try to help.

    I'm not sure why I'm having such a reaction, but I really don't want to stop the cycle. I think maybe its the deca? I've done straight test before without these issues. I also pin each quad once a week and I'm thinking maybe thats too much. Maybe I should start adding glutes in there.

    Any more help is appreciated. Done alot of googling about it and checking my other forums and found similar problems. Most say they subsided and I'm sure mine will, but the itchy and redness is whats interesting me.

    took a bath with epson salt tonight, then applied nonscented lotion. maybe the epson will help with soreness, and the lotion might help with the itching who knows. Im tryin w/e at this point. We will see how it goes through the rest of this week and next. Next two pins will be glutes to give the legs a rest and then go from there.

    also try injecting the test and deca in in syringe so less pinning. if u havent been already doing that u might want to.

    Yea I've been doing that. I thougth you were only supposed to do like 1ml into delts though?

    Anyhow.. lol, my left foot right now is a bit numby. I looked at it.. it looks like someone hooked up a bicycle pump to my foot, and inflated it.

    Some random ass **** is going on with my body. I'd like to know why haha. Side note. I hit PR's on the bench today.

    With the knots, it sounds like your gear is dirty. I would re-filter it through a .22 filter and try it, or cut it with some EO.

    Yea. Ive do 3cc in.delts regularly and I hit my quads each x 2 EW deca may well be responsible for swelling in ankles and knees but site pain shouldn't be an issues, I'd try ftering it with a whatman as suggested above

    site pain can be an issue if ur hitting a virgin muscle. also if ur hand shakes etc..

    A virgin muscle shouldn't react with a knot sensation, just soreness and pain IMO.

    Hey pipes bro...this hasn't been mentioned but I think there's a chance your allergic to the deca since you've done a previous cycle of just test or like the other guys said you might have dirty gear.

    The blotchiness, redness, swolleness and itchiness sounds like your having some sort of allergic reaction. I'm no doctor but if this continues going forward I would consider stopping and jumping straight into PCT.

    It doesn't sound to healthy when you mention your foot being inflated like a balloon, lol.

    I had a supertest cycle before, and I couldn't sit down with comfort for about 10-12 days-If the pain does not fade soon, there may be an infection
