I injected 2 ml in to my left calf 24 hours ago and the paid got worse and worse today. OMG it is bad. I have a hot pad on it now popped two aleve and having a few shots of crown maple to dull the pain. I know drinking isn't the best thing to do on juice by damn it's the worse pinn pain I had to date. I was reading on another page some body said
Good God, 2 ML or 2 CC's in the calf?!?!?! I was in the worst imaginable pain and my foot swole up like a watermelon after injecting 1 CC into my calf. If you get swelling, this is a serious risk of stroke and you MUST see a doctor if your foot swells. **************.com recommends never exceeding 1/2 CC into the calf. Doctors and nurses say calfs are so dangerous that only under the most extreme emergency do they consider IM injections into calfs. In other words, its actually one of those places we should NOT do because your calf is dark meat, IM injections are best done in white meat with relatively fewer blood vessles.
Expect the pain of the calf to last more then a week (like 8 to 9 days from my experience) with no let down at all in pain or swelling until then. Benedril pills will help reduce swelling, you'll have to take them around the clock 2 or 3 at a time. If you still get bad swelling, then you need a doctor's injectable version of benedril to arrest the swelling and decrease the risk of stroke.
I'm wondering if there is any truth to this as other people said they like calf injections. Did I just do to much like next time 1ml in each calf. I glad I did it on a friday night that's for sure
