Been pinning twice a week for almost a year. For the last couple weeks Iv’e had problems getting it done. I hit a nerve or something that made my muscle twitch a while back, and now I seem to stutter and hesitate every time. I had been pinning in my quads but tried to go sub q. The first in my belly hurt for a couple days. Thinking it may have went IM. Tried love handle area today. Hope it’s better, but I still hesitated. 25g 5/8 1cc syringe with 1/2 ml.
I do occasionally. I’ve been doing thighs. I did quads at first, quads definitely hit a nerve more often. I’ve been very successful with thighs (top 3rd of leg and I go in horizontally into the side of the leg).
I use a 1-1/4” needle 27g.
I’ve heard from @dextermorgan and others that delts are the way to go. The only reason I haven’t tried that yet is because I still have about 75 1-1/4” needles to burn through. I would highly recommend you try that, especially since you have shorter needles. Ideally you would have insulin needles that are 27g or higher and 1/2” long.
Delts are the way to go. I really can’t understand why people still do it any other way. Small needles, I do it slowly and it’s painless. SubQ stung and burned like crazy for me. Delt I never even feel or know I injected other than my d working normally
Careful pinning shoulders too often though, I find if I do more than two 1cc injections in a week they tend to bleed a bit personally. But also +1 for delts.
Dude a box of 100 syringes is $17 lol. Save those 75 as backup
I use lower outside of thigh. vastus lateralis or rectus femoralis. I like the leverage better than going for delts.
You don’t have to push the whole thing in. You can inject without having it buried. Just sayin’…
That’s what she said?
Thanks for the input guys
