29 gauge, 1/2 inch needle 0.25ml Test Cypionate (2x weekly, alternating quads).
3 years no problems or any pain. Injected Thursday afternoon (pushed in slow) - no pain as usual.
**Side Note: accidentally started filling syringe a day early by accident, so I left needle fully in bottle til next day, then withdrew it and injected. If this matters.
Friday afternoon I had very strong pain in vastus lateralis (24 hours after injection). Hurts to barely touch the muscle - causes me to limp from the pain. Pain has continued to tonight with no relief (now it’s Saturday night ~ 30 hours after pain was noticed and about 54 hours after injection) Very slight swelling (barely noticeable). It’s not warm or discolored - only symptom is pain like a torn muscle.
Anyone experienced this that can offer their experience? Any idea what happened and how long it lasted? I’m assuming IF it is infected I would have big swelling and hot to the touch. I don’t know why it took so long for the pain to occur if I struck something (IT band?)
Thank you all for reading!
