Light swelling after both quad injections
i injected in my quad last sunday and again yesterday. On both occasions, light swelling developed towards the upper part of my quad that lasts for about 36-48 hours. It is just starting to subside now, but it is quite annoying. It happened when i injected also on Sunday, took some time to diminish.
I have been injecting 1ML each of test-e and deca in the side part of my quad, i did this for both times. in both occasions i aspirated well, everything was fine. the are of light swelling on both occasions occured up from the injection area
when i injected in my shoulder, there really was no swelling. again let me emphpasize that it is not a lot, just enough to get me annoyed, oh, and prevent me from doing a leg workout if i had one scheduled

quad is your biggest muscle...when u injecting it, your ripping right through a big amount of muscle...try a smaller gauge needle...what gauge are u using now?

that's one of the reasons that i chose quads actually, so i make sure to get right into the muscle.
i've been feeling a difference in my other workouts (positive!) but unfortunately it seems that the injected muscle is really limited if i have a workout planned that involves it. for example when i did shoulder, i had to skip it and do just back instead. today i was supposed to train quads, but knew i couldn't. but my workout yesterday was excellent

I try and keep my injections at 1 minute per CC... using a 25ga needle helps keep you slow and steady... a pin in your muscle for 1-2 minutes is unpleasant for 1-2 minutes... a rushed injection can hurt for hours or days.

is it feasible a smaller needle would cause less leg pain?

Yes and no bro...
smaller pin means poking a smaller hole, but it also means if you push too hard on the plunger you'll cause a much higher pressure coming out of the pin into the tissue which is not always too good.
I guess you have nothing to lose by trying a smaller caliber pin, though my personnal opinion is that if you're getting a bit of swelling and a mild rash you're probably having some sort of mild reaction to the gear.

possibly, although it is noteworthy nothing happened in the shoulder except pain
