IM Pain & Redness Outside of Injection Site


#1

ok haven't been on here in a while and I know theres a gazzilion forums on this subject matter but I think mines a lil diff and im trying to conclude a lil more reasonable answer...tried shooting ventrogulte first time test e 250 in conjuction(first time) w/ masteron 100. Had a long day dealing with bs at home, saw a bunch of diff ways to find this spot and I still shot way to low(wasn't thinking straight). always change needles to draw and push, alcohol swab, shower b4 and all that jazz. felt a good prick at the beg. thought maybe a nerve but the rest felt fine, going in fine, after a lil came out but fine. worked out fine...came home bout 6 hours later dozed off for a bit and felt the some aches and was doing the old man wobble.

Next day felt a lil worse, today the 3rd day the pains not as bad just certain angle or bending to low however the pain location that's been there and the redness that decided to show up today about the size of my hand has not been at site location but roughly 4-5 inches below right around where someone would shoot for a thigh...So im confused, it's a nice big red spot but not really elevated was a lil itchy part of the day and if it's warm it's not by that much... any experience with this red "swelling" located in a spot diff then site location??? Been putting ice, massaging a little, took some ibuprofen and antihistamine...these photos don't do it justice theres a red spot there trust me, I dotted with a red marker to show where it's at and pointed with finger at injection site...boy that was long

Dude… That is literally no where near your ventro glute

If it progresses go to the doctor.


#3

You need an anatomy chart man.

But yea just keep an eye on it. Not a whole lot more you can do.


#4

yea I know, I totally misconstrueded one of the drawing diagram of someone else administering to a patient, then a photo of another guy that was totally wrong. had just gotten a call of my ex saying she was buying a ticket to try and take my son away and my nerves were shot…I later looked it up again and was like wtf! whered I just put that shit!


#5

anyways I guess im more wondering if this location of redness as ever show up on someone that didn’t start or is seen on actual pinning site but rather somewhere else on the same ie. limb


#6

That’s like saying your gonna pin your tris and you hit your chest.


#7

yes I know I didn’t pin right place, wasn’t thinking straight had just got a call from my separated wife saying she was buying a ticket to come take my son away and totally misread what I found online and the diagram of injecting on someone else…

however my question wasn’t where should I shoot in ventroglute(though that rhymes) its if anyone has experienced redness and pain in same extremity where pinned but not on exact location…I even put in my post i knew this wasn’t where i was suppose to shoot. but haha kinda funny i know, i asked myself “where the fuck did i just put that” after going back to the diagram

Your leg. Your leg is where you put that shit. Which is actually a fine injection site anyway.
