Yesterday I did a test injection in my left quad and today I’ve been experiencing a lot of pain and soreness as well as some swelling. The pain and swelling is in my lower quad and upper knee so about 6 inches lower than the injection site. No redness. The best way to describe it is it feel like I have a huge knot in my quad.
It was my first dose at 0.75 ml after upping it from 0.5 ml. It was definitely the most painful injection I’ve had but nothing too memorable.
When I woke up today I figured it was just sore from yesterdays workout but now with the swelling and I I’m starting to doubt it. This seems like a common enough issue and this is only day 2 but I like to be cautious with things. Is there anything I should look for that would indicate something serious or should this just go away with some anvil and an ice pack and a few days?
