    Should it hurt

    I started my first cycle. So far I've done two shots. Now is the injection area suppose to hurt for a couple of days? It's not swollen just sore. Like a Charlie horse.

    It depends on the person and the gear. I started my first cycle 10 weeks ago and the pain although minimal usually lasts a couple days. Day after and lingers into the next. Like a Charlie horse.

    Title=That's what she said.

    Probably just moved your hand a bit too much while injecting.

    I find that some sites hurt more then others. For example my legs always hurt for a few days while my glutes don't usually get a lingering pain.

    I always get what feels like a "knot" (for lack of a better work) in the muscle. I guess a "Charlie horse" would be a good description. Like you said - some spots hurt worse. For me, CALVES are brutal. Anybody who has never done 'em, DON'T I swear to God, I had trouble walking for a couple days.

    I'm no "vet", there are guys on here who have forgotten more about gear than I will ever know, but I think two things that have an effect on who bad it hurts are (1) how much oil yer putting in one spot. (2) how fast you put it in. For me, if I go slow, there is considerably less of that "knot" feeling (not that it bothers me anyway)

    My first injections were brutal, lasted 3 or 4 days after. Virgin tissue, gear concentration, poor injection technique.

    I definitely have a 'sweet spot' on my quads glutes and delts where if I miss it, there's a little more pain but nothing major. If I hit it right though, zero pain.
