Leg injection question.

Leg injection question.
Why is it so painful?? I feel like someone beat the hell out of my leg all night. I woke up this morning and it hurts really bad to move it. I am 99% certain I injected in the right spot. I aspirated and injected very slowly. Anyone on here have painful leg injections?
The injection wasn't painful at all. Today......a different story. The injection was 250 mg. of Test E.

You might try one or more of the following:
- be sure to hold the needle very still
- heat the gear first (put the vial in a cup of hot water for a few minutes before drawing, or run the barrel of the syringe under hot water just prior to injecting)
- massage injection site after injection
- dilute your gear with additional sterile oil

Thanks kwantam. Have you ever been really sore like this?
I took a hot bath afterward and I thought I was really still during the injection. Maybe I am still a little nervous. This is still a little new to me.

During my last few quad injects, I hit a nerve one time and my leg jumped like 8" off the chair and the next inject in the other leg, I hit a vein and it really hurt a lot. My quads always feel a little sore for the rest of the day but the feeling goes away after a day. Just remember to aspirate, as you have a lot of very large veins running through your quads.

Quads always hurt for me too, dunno why. Have you tried your glutes yet? Its pretty much the only place I inject, besides my delts.

bump on what kwantam said...works everytime...except with prop, lol.
Do you have any idea what %'s of BB and BA are in the test enanthate you have?
I know I happen to be extremely sensitive to BA so anything over 3 or 4% usually hurts like hell for about a day or two after injecting.
try kwantams ideas though, they work...especially if you use all of the advice he listed instead of picking one.

This used to happen to me all the time when i injected my gear at room temp. Warming it up before hand helps A LOT. I would actually place the syringe on the top of the electric kettle and let the kettle come to a boil. By then the contents of the syringe are nice and warm.....and I guess you are also ready to have tea if you so desire lol.

I only have a problem when I inject too close to the knee. I use tough old man's trick of going 2/3-3/4 the way up the quad, dead center. Very little discomfort. Even prop doesn't bother me that much there. Make sure you try different inject spots on the quad. Likely may make a big difference.

heating the syringe helped me greatly, also the first cycle hurt like hell for me as well, you will get used to it and get better

Im usually pretty sore the day after I get injected as well, I can barely sit down and walk bold legged.

wait wait wait....methyl your injecting now? What the hell are you injecting? Plz tell me its some form of test.

He said he gets injected, I'm afraid he means something else than an injection with a syringe though..

I should have known, methyl...you and your damn antics.

I've heard that "hot beef injections" can be rather painful, but I don't ever plan on that particular style of protein supplementation.Originally Posted by Methyl1
I highly recommend it to women, though...

Yeah, you could say it contains some form of "test" in itOriginally Posted by UNDERTAKER
Hell, Ive grown so much these past few months as a result of this natural protien supplementation, the oral bioavailability of the protien is second to none!!

Freaking delts and glutes only for me. The only spots that doesn't hurt. But I have to admit I haven't even tried biceps or tricep. What gauge should I use if I do try tricep injections.

Ahh, the Tube Steak, natures greatest protien source at about 40 grams of protien per serving. I like to vary my protien sources, such as Eggs, Chicken, turkey, Lean roast beef, Tube steak, TunaOriginally Posted by BigP0ppa3

I have never pinned, but from what I hear, 25g 5/8inch would be best.Originally Posted by asap nutrition

I was going to recommend 25g 1" at least. Unless you're built like a twig you're in no danger of hitting bone, which I think is really what scares most people, and you DEFINITELY don't want to inject sub-q. Make sure it gets into the muscle!Originally Posted by UNDERTAKER
