I’ve never really had recurrent PIP problems, and the only really problems with injection site pain was from virgin muscles. Recently, my left thigh has been getting really bad pip every injection (every 2 weeks in that muscle). My other injection sites (including right thigh) get a little bit sore but it’s no worse than the tiniest little pain for a day or two after injecting. I’ve even fully mangled my deltoid with a needle when I did my first delt pin and the PIP wasn’t even bad enough to stop me from destroying some OHP.
So what could be the issue with my left quad? It feels like someone took a sledgehammer to it, and has done for a few days after the last 3 injections there. I have no signs of infection there like swelling/discolouration, just the immense pain and the lack of mobility. It’s made me consider just taking my left quad completely out of it and finding a new injection site completely, but would that mean I should also take out my right quad for balance’s sake? That would be a shame since it’s the least anxiety-causing and the smoothest injection site I have on my body.
- Why would a muscle start getting really bad PIP (no signs of infection)?
- Would there be any issues with only pinning a muscle group on one side of my body (preferable some anecdotes would be appreciated)?
