    Expired Gear - Need Advice

    Got a rather large chunk of gear about 5-6 years ago. Did a few cycles with terrific results. I had to step away from the gym for a few years but have been regular again. My gear is now 5-6 years old and no current contacts. I took 2 pins a month ago and my leg had severe swelling both times. Took 4-5 days to subside but it was bad enough that any cardio and working legs was out for that week. I did notice results but the side effects from the pins have me worried. Many say, gear never gets old, it only dilutes, but it's got me wondering why the nasty swelling now. Never happened back in the day. At first maybe I thought I pinned a bad spot or had some infection, but twice in a row with extreme caution? Wasn't my first time by a long run.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Not sure if its relevant or not but it was a combo Test Cyp / Deca both times that did it. It wasn't my first time for Deca but it was for Cyp. Used other types of Test before.

    Thanks

    I don't think time would change the pain it would cause?if it was stored correctly outta severe heat or light it should be fine..maybe your sensitivity to BA in the gear has changed..try hitting different spots?

    You are probably pinning incorrectly and not being sterile

    BA is all I can guess? Anything I can do about that??? This is some good shit Ive got here.

    I'm pretty sure I'm pinning correctly as I've done it dozens of times (and have done the homework).

    May try a diff test or something. Too much gear to just dump.
