Struck a Nerve!
Started my first Cycle in over 20 years a week ago so I consider myself a born again newbie. Doing Test E 300 ml twice a week.
So 1st shot went smooth except for a flash sweat as soon as I pinned my quad. Purely physiological. Stopped sweating as soon as I with drew the needle. Even with that I couldn't wait for my next shot.
2nd shot went perfect no issues. Once again pumped for my next shot but did wonder if after a few weeks I would be anticipating pin day so much.
3rd shot today twitched going in wasn't sure if it was a nerve, but found out real quick, a small short stream of blood came out.
What a mind fuck that was!!!
Took a good 20 - 30 minutes to work up the courage to re-pin (fresh syringe).
I will admit I am a bit mind fucked still but was able to re - pin.
Just sharing so other newbies will know that others can relate and it isn't all that glorious sometimes. Just have to keep the "end game" in mind.
It happens bro! Sound like I got big nuts though!
it sucks hitting a nerve, but if there is blood i would say you hit/nicked a blood vessel
That was a blood vessel and not a nerve. Do you aspirate once you have stick in the pin and before you push in the oil?
It happens to me at least once a week.
dam man i remember my first pin and i got the sweat/hot flashes it brought back old memories.. haha
sorry about you hitting a nerv that shit sucks i pinned my quad and hit a nerve on my third shot. i was gun shy for that week.. my wife does most of my shots now.. but i do my glute and quads myself
when you hit a nerve you feel a stupid sharp pain. and usually its just under the skin
Thats why i pin slow. I pin quads allot and I all ways hit a nerve and my quad jumps in the air. So i started to pin slow. I use to have to get pumped up breathing hard and put some metal on to jab it in fast. Now i Just pit the pin on my skin apply slight pressure enough to break the skin. no pain. Then once you hit muscle you dont even feel a thing period. You will start to feel it close when your next to a nerve. So I will just pull back a bit and then go back in and it will miss it. Aperate and your ready to go.
Yes, I do asperate, however this happened as I was slowly inserting the needle. I think I may have popped a blood vessel. I now have a faint blue bruising just under the skin about the size of a dime.
