    injection question

    I was told that when injecting in my glut i should not rest my body weight on the side that I am giving the injection in, I was told to rest that my weight on the top of the foot so that there is no tension in the muscle. None of the how to inject threads on thise site mention anything about doing that, d you guys do that or do you just stand on both feet, I ask this because it is hard to give myself the shot while trying to twist and take the weight off of one of my feet. What would the problem be if I stood up on both feet, if the muscle has tension does it just make the injection site hurt a little bit more? Or is what I am doing pointless?

    You want to relax the muscle as much as possible and not have any real weight on that side, that's about it.

    are there any negative consequences if I were to accidentally shift the balance of my weight while injecting, or is it just the discomfort?

    I usually try to take all weight off of that side. I just push most of my weight to one foot and use a mirror if i need to. If balance is an issue, leaning against a doorway or wall may help.

    Mainly discomfort I suppose. You don't want to move or tense up the muscle you are injecting since it may cause some unnecessary PIP.
