    BAD SHOT...advise

    Ive done alot of shots before . I always shoot into my quad . Ive never had a problem before .


    Well i shoot sunday morning , somtimes ill have slight pain when streching my muscle for a day or 2 , or from high BA . But this gear has been painless for the most part .

    The area is all red for about a 5 inch diameter . It hurts , nothing unbearable . No bumps or lumps . Hurts to the touch , and when i move my leg .

    Any thing to worry about , or should i go see a doc asap?

    wow dude that sucks.

    hasn't happened to me YET! but i am dreading the day.
    if it was me i would wait a day and see if it gets worse. if it starts to heal itself most likely your ok. if not tell the doc you left the window open at night and think you got bit by something.

    i try never to touch the needle at all. i would just dip the needle into the bottle of alcohol. the sucky thing is i do use the same needle i draw with. i am sure i will pay for that someday.

    crane - it is fine to use the same needle just make sure you swab off the top of the vial befoire drawing, as well as your injection site.

    You probably passed thru a vein/nerve or both. I wouldn't worry about it. That's very common with quad shots. Try taking a hot bath and massaging the injection site, and start hitting different area's for awhile..glutes/delts.

    In the future, you should NOT touch or wipe the needle with anything!

    dam dude i thought i was the only one who hits nerves arteries and all that other crap in my quad. nice to see some else experiences the samething. i would love to do quad shots but it is just to much of a chance to take. way painful.

    oh and yes i do make sure i wipe the top of the bottle everytime i draw out. i use cotton balls which kinda suck because there is a chance i can get a piece of cotton on the tip of the needle. that maybe also the cause of the inflamation to the leg. i have seen it a couple of time when i used to wipe the sterile needle down with alcohol saturated cotton ball. i would have to inspect the end of the needle before i jab. now just dip in bottle.

    Needles are 100% sterile when you open them. DONT touch them with even alcohol, no need to.


    And for the record, i dont even do quad shots anymore, because 80% of the time i hit a nerve.
