    When I was on M1T I would get back DBol -like pumps in every part of my body. I'm talking shins, forearms, glutes, back, and even my jaw muscles. I couldn't finish some meals the pumps were so intense. What helped me was drinking water, stretching and massages to the hurting body part.

    Naw, bro. All that thread is going to due is scare them. Compartment syndrome usually is brought on from some type of trauma. Hes probably just holding water from the dbol .

    depending if you are running also, it could be shin splints. This generally occurred when I ran on diferent surfaces. track Turf, road. It is when the muscle begins to pull away from the bone. The only way to repair is rest, no running anyway.

    Its prolly just blood flow man, i had shin pumps and lower back pumps like crazy just from Anavar and NO2.... so its highly possible from the Dbol that its just Major blood Flow....

    Wow, I was honestly going to post the same question. I can barely walk. I am not on any DBOLS. Just winstrol and TEST. It gets so bad that I have to stop walking and take a break....

    I read the thread above...YIKES. That is not good. I have the same pain and in the exact spot...

    Yeah bro, Im just running test and like I said, I had them a couple weeks ago. Nothing serious, just retaining water. If your worried about it go to your doc. Thats what I did when I got all worked up about the compartment syndrome. But, like I said, compartment syndrome is ususally from some type of trauma. If you are puffy, go to the docs and get on some diuretics. Im running those and letro now and its gotten MUCH better. Dont sweat it, it will pass. Good luck!

    I had them really bad doing 40mg Var/day. If I was walking even slightly uphill I'd have to stop, the pain was so bad. Nothing I tried helped either, other than to stop walking.

    I wouldn't worry one second about compartment syndrome -you already know the cause.

    Maybe someone will answer why shins are so susceptable to this.

    Well, now that I've actually READ the link on compartment syndrome, maybe you SHOULD worry! All I know is for me it only happened when I walked uphill and cleared up after the cycle was over.
