Agreed, virgin muscle. Quads hurt, try glutes.Originally Posted by jamesm11
I'm currently going through the same thing right now. Pinned on Sunday and the pain was excruciating for days and then pinned my delt on tue and I'm still in pain. I personally think I mightve gone to deep when injecting because I did not have any pain from my previous shots, except the first couple. This is prop by the way I honestly thought I had an infection because the pain was similar to when I got an infection years ago but it was not hot to the touch or red so I just applied pleny of heat to it andit seemed to do the trick. The pain in my delt is still there and is lasting longer than the reaction from the pain in my glute. I'm just going to give it a few more days. I pinned twice after that so I know its not the gear.
ya this is what needs to be asked, is it red AT ALL, does it hurt like a shot(dead arm feeling) or a sharp pain, sharp pain usually but not always means infection in my personal experience ive had a left quad infection. Do you have a fever, call a nurse for free and tell her you inject b12 and this has never happened, be smart, you wanna lose your ****ing leg over 100bucks?
IMO ANYTHING cut with even the smallest amount of alcohol will level the injection site burning more regardless of where on the body. Best bet is th swab it w/hydrogen peroxide, reclean with alcohol swap. bandage if wanted. but keep rotating a warm compress on the site. if a cyst is developing it will work to the surface at which point you get yourself an amoxycilin, etc script to kill the infection. Cysts can move through the blood stream and pop ur heart. be safe
Surprised nobody has mentioned to just pin delts. Easiest in my opinion.
the solution could be subq pinning of test!
