I’ve been experiencing lasting and severe soreness after quad injections of test enanthate. I first described the symptoms a few weeks ago in cadav’s “Bad IM?” thread, http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do?id=1577903
Since then I’ve injected a total of four times from the same vial of BD 250mg/ml Test E, each time with the same symptoms. The soreness develops between 8 and 24 hours later, and lasts for over a week. With two of these shots the soreness was particularly bad, to the point of not being able to easily walk for several days, to say nothing of training.
The soreness is not at the injection spot but is centered slightly above the knee with some swelling there, and makes it painful to bend the knee.
What is interesting is that I never develop any soreness when injecting BD 75mg/ml tren acetate.
So I’m wondering: is it likely that I’m dealing with bacterial contamination of this particular vial, or is there something else about the 250mg/ml (i.e. relatively high concentration) test enanthate which is causing the soreness? Perhaps the quantity or type of solvent or the type of carrier oil used, for example? Too much BA? Is this something endemic to higher concentration formulations, and some of us are just particularly susceptible?
I suspect the answer to this question will be of interest to others as well.
