    Go to the hospital right now. That's not an infection. You have damaged a nerve and need to make sure it doesn't need clinical help to stop further damage. Don't f*ck around with this. Go to the ER if it's all purple and sh*t. Maybe I'd stick it out if it were just a twinge of numbness but that's not all you're experiencing.

    Is it still numb? I would have to say if it isn't you got a double whammy..hit a nerve and probably went through a vein or some vessels on the way in.Aspirating may not have shown blood depending on where the bleeding is coming from. If the site is painful and starts to swell or the numbness doesn't go a way go get checked out. Second idea would be to call an urgent care and speak with a nurse explain it and you don't have to give your name and go from there.

    Any update yet?. Sound like you just passed through a vain. I've had that hitting my biceps and triceps before. I've also had some nasty quad shots too. Oh, I'm an old timer, so I never went the hospital, lol...

    He hit a vein I think and the purple is blood. I hope he's ok. I stick with the glutes for a reason. I know ED or EOD shots require multi sites but Im not in to the ED gear, not yet anyway.


    Let us know how you made out.

    hey guys...i posted it really quickcause i had to go to work... the numbnesswent away withing 5 min after i posted it and the itchy feelingh went away as i was driving to work. My arm doesnt hurt at all and it isnt swollen or anything. I did everything i normally do for a shot and i didnt feel anything different as it was going in so that was kinda strange. anyways, it's the next morning and its all basically gone except maybe a tiny bit but even that is barely noticable uinless you really look hard... i talked to a friend of mine and he said its happened to him on more than one occasion and said that it should go down within a few days, but its already gone down so i think thats a good sign. So what do you guys think... should i still go get it checked out?

    thanx for the help

    Your fine bro, get it checked you are really worried but thats happened to me before. You probably just passed through a vein and what you see is blood beneath the surface of the skin (kinda like a bruise). Itchiness is normal too, usually passes with 1/2 hour. Now if it hurt days afterward then I'd get itchecked ...just my .02 cents
