Ok, I have a question that I have been trying to get answers to for a couple of weeks now. Myself and a friend are currently using aas and we have both been having problems with extreme soreness for about one week after pinning. I have done 2 cycles in the past and have not experienced anything more than normal soreness after the injection day. I am currently on week 7 (whole cycle is 11 weeks) of test e and eq, week 2 of clen and t-3, nolvadex, and will be starting var in a couple of weeks and will run it untill pct. I have been injecting the test into each quad once a week and the eq into each shoulder once a week. My glutes have been giving me problems (extreem soreness for about a week and I just got rid of an abcess in my right glute) during injection and after so have stopped using them for the time being. I think I have just over used them considering that is the only place I used to inject during prior cycles.
This extreme soreness does not happen every time but has occured often. I am pretty sure that I do not have an abcess because there is no lump just tightness and soreness. Now I cannot say the same for my friend because he has been able to locate a bubble in his shoulder. By the way me and my friend are very careful when it comes to taking the right precaustions to prevent infection (showers before pinning, washing hands, alchohol swabbing before and after inj., band aids, etc.) I have used the T-Nations search engine on the subject and have read some helpful articles on abcesses and sorness but have still not come accross enough info to answer my predicament. I will probably be hearing a lot of the same stuff that I have already read but it never hurts to try and get some more info. Also I was wondering roughly how long it would take for an abcess to dissipate on its own. How much time should lapse before pinning in that spot would be ok.
If anybody has had any experience on this subject I would really appreciate any helpful suggestions or tips.
