    Painful injection site

    Hey guys, second cycle and have hit a problem. My left ass cheek is on fire after my last pin on Monday, 4 days ago. I also pinned my right ass cheek at the same time. The pain is above and beyond anything I've experienced before. It hurts to walk, I can only squat to quarter depth but still hurts and cannot lay on my back due to extreme pain in my cheek. Have I got an infection or hit a nerve, what's the story?! Getting a bit worried here fellas!! Cheers.

    Is the area hot to the touch? Red? How much swelling? Are you running a fever?

    Hard to say, it might a little bit warmer but not by much and no redness according to the missus. Definitely worse since Monday, not running a fever or under the weather. Only two weeks into cycle and feel good, weight has already gone up. Do I need to book a drs appointment? Thanks for the quick replies!!

    What was the pin size and how much oil was injected?

    Is there a lump and if so, if you apply gentle pressure with a finger tip do you feel a "give"?

    sometimes its were you stick the needle, i have had plenty of times were there was no pain at all, and other times i was sore as hell couldnt move my shoulder for 4 or 5 days, but other than that i havnt had a problem (knock on wood). site injection pain isnt too uncommon. if you get fever, or nausea or is gets swollen or red, then theres problems, but i think your good bro, give it some time to clear up, butt can fight infections good

    21g and I injected 1.5ml in each ass cheek. Cant really find a lump, more just general sweeping that seems to be firm. And fukn sore!! Yeah I hope it clears up, I've booked a drs appt for next week. If there is aj infection what would they do?! And how is it diagnosed, visually? When I'm not on my phone reps for all. Thanks.

    Has it been past 72 hours since injection? Why did you inject so much at one time is it because you are injecting once a week or taking multiple compounds? How much are you running per week? What compounds and what brand are you using? Did you heat the oil? Did you swab the area with alcohol swab and allow it dry before injecting?

    Based on this discription it may be that some portion of the oil did not deposit deeply enough into the muscle tissue, but actually into the aqueous layer just above. As oil and water do mix, the oil spreads outward. The surrounding tissue becomes inflamed as a natural response to the foreign invading substance. The surrounding inflamed tissue encases the fluid, like a dome covering. The bolus of fluid (water, white blood cells, and the steroid oil form an abcess.

    Then it's a question sterility. If bacteria is presecent, white blood cells attack it and puss is formed. This will need to be drained by a medical professional.

    If no live bacteria is present, that would suggest a sterile abcess. These typically clear up on their own by reabsorption.

    I was hoping for a nerve, but did pin outer left but pain shooting across top of left ass cheek. Maybe its a sterile abscess? Shot 3ml cos running 3 compounds, two test and equipoise. Swabbed and dried, sake sterile process as always. It's been 96 hours since injection, would expect to clear up in next day or two if not serious. Would heat pack and massage help or make worse?! Cheers.

    only time will tell bro, hopefully the problem is that you put more oil than the muscle could handle and damaged it, or is pressing against something, if so youll be fine soon. if it gets worse and your in bad pain goto ER
