First time poster here.
Was recently diagnosed with Low T, after seeing a Dr regarding the symptoms I was having, then recieved a T blood test with a reading of 9nmol/L (reference range is 8 - 30 but normal for my age is 25). Im going to get the other hormones checked soon as well
The Dr reccomended Reandron/Nebido and its my first time doing TRT so I just went with it, its only a trial to see if it helps my symptoms.
On to the issue I’m having - the injection was done by a nurse, I told her I read that the injection should be done over 90 seconds or so, she proceeded to complete the injection in 10 seconds… I was subsequently unable to sit down or lay on my back for the rest of the day. Over the next couple days I had issues with pain in the back of my leg and pins and needles (sciatic nerve irritation I assume). I also had soreness and red lumps around the injection site
Those issues went away by the end of week 1. However its now half way through week 3 and the red lumps have returned! I’ve got 3 itchy red lumps around the injection site, but no fever.
Is this normal? Is its just my body reacting to my first injection, is it due to the manner in which the nurse delivered the injection or am I allergic to something? I’m not alergic to anything as far as I’m aware.
