I've read the injectin pain sticky and I pretty much have the issues of the first case on the sticky, but...
I just started my 2nd cycle (750mg Test-E / week) last wednesday. I did a frontload and injected 2ml to my both glutes, so 1000mg frontload.
The problems is, both sides are still firm and painful to touch and they are warm. There is swelling inside the muscle. There's no redness and I dont have any fever or flu symptoms..
I did my 2nd injection on friday (1ml on my right quad) and the pain is almost gone now, but it's still there, but it's gettin better day by day.
I never used glutes on my first cycle, could this be the problem? Too much for a virgin muscle? The injection sites are still as painful as the day after injecting, or slightly better. It seems IMPOSSIBLE that I could have an infection on BOTH of my glutes. I thought of an abcess but the firm area is so large that I doubt it.
It's pharmagrade Test-E by the way. I did a sterile injection for sure, but to be honest I did the injections quite fast which may have damaged the muscle. I used a 23g 1.5" needle and injected in the top of the glute.
Should I start worrying?
