Steroid Injection is Killing Me


#1

Hey I just started taking a cycle of test and npp. I am injecting my shoulder changing shoulder each shot. Anyways I did my first two shots and they honestly went so good the injection went in eat and o barely felt any pain. I just did my third shot yesterday and omg it was a struggle. The liquid wasn't going in quick enough I really needed to push like it was a struggle to push all the liquid inside me.

I jut woke up this morning and it literally feels like I've gotten shot. I'm just wondering if anyone with experience can tell me why this happened. Did I get lucky my first two shots where they went really well or was my third shot just a bad one. I read that maybe my muscle was tense but I wasn't even nervous I was so relaxed. Anyways any information you guys can give me it'll be very appreciated thank you.

How many days prior had you injected the same muscle?


#3

If you are injecting the same muscle you need to rotate sites… You can’t just inject the exact same point every other day… of course it’s going to hurt, the muscle needs to heal.


#4

Injecting every 3 days


#5

I am rotating sides my first two injections went so well I did the same thing and this just really hurt it’s feeling alot better now but I don’t want it to happen again

Inject every 3 days, rotate spots.
I like lats, delts, glutes. that 6 sites right there.

if it really hurts put the vial in a pan with some water. heat up the water so the oil gets thinner so it doesn’t crystalize inside you. that’s where the pain comes from.

if it still hurts after, get an electric blanket/ heating pad and hangout with it on your shoulder.
swtich from icy hot to the pad.

if you’re still in pain after that go see a massage therapist and get a deep tissue, esp if you inject legs and accidentally hit something. that’s why i don’t do legs anymore.

IF THAT DOESN’T WORK go to a sports medicine doctor and get a help with their therapeutic toys.

if that doesn’t work straight up inject 10000 mg of morphine straight into your eye socket. trust me, I got the Idea from noobrific and Yogi, they are insane smart. I bet they are engineers.
