    quad inject hitting a nerve

    I tried for my first time a quad shot. I changed the pin to a 25g 5/8. I inserted SLOWLY, then bang a sharp funny pain. I believe I hit a nerve on my first attempt. Now im somewhat apprehensive about try again tonight. Is this normal? How many experience this. Im glad I just did not jamm it fast!!

    25g at 5/8... thats a little small dont you think? lol
    anyway- i usually hit nerve at about 1 in every 10 quad shots. just slowly pull out and move slightly one way or the other.

    Use a 1" pin for quads. Nicking a nerve happens, nothing unusual. Just withdraw the needle and reinsert at a different spot.

    No big deal..just scares the hell out of you the first couple of times..

    pullout move over and jab again....

    And I agree...use the 1" pin for the quads...

    You might want to try flexing your thigh, and securely grabbing a handful of the muscle. Then relax your thigh and slowly do the injection where you are grabbing. Since I was shown this trick, I have not ever felt the needle or the injection in any way, and I have never hit a nerve since. I shoot each quad twice a week... Good luck

    hey mate, yea 25g 5/8" is too small use 25g 1" and the first injection will feel odd, you sure you hit a nerve? aspirate to make sure , but you will be able to tell


    anyway umm

    see that pic i normally inject into 2 (the teardrop) as some call it,

    you inject into the side as shown in the pics on spotinjections? can you do it from the top or only side? when i tried that area it hurt more than the teardrop

    I have done a lot of quad injects and never hit a nerve on the side of the leg. Sometimes you start to get a little pain when you go through a vein. I always put the needle in slowly.

    If you hit a nerve it would do more than hurt. Your leg would spasm and youd probally chuck the rig across the room!!!

    Getpinz sent me like 8 5/8 needles when I wanted all 1 inchers.. I had to use them but the 5/8 is not deep enough for quads and it scar tissues up quickly where-ever you are poking because some leaks out of muscle and toughens up your skin where its real tough to get the needle thru... you need longer needles and your quads will get better after a couple weeks... also when you rubbing alcohol your spot... need to let it dry... **** that will BURN BABY BURN if you try poking with your skin still wet with alcohol.

    It's funny. I have injected in my quads a hundred times with no issues. Well, Last night I decided to inject more towards the top of the quad (vs the side) and WALLA, I hit a **** nerve. It is the weirdest feeling, but no biggie. just pulled the pin up a bit moved it over and no issues
