    Repeated swelling from pining in quads

    Hi all,

    Current cycle

    Test C 750MG EW (250mg 3x EW)
    NPP 600MG EW (150mg EOD)
    Winstrol - 80mg ED

    I've been experiencing significant swelling, soreness and redness when pining in my quads specifically and I just can't figure out why. I pin in my delts and glutes and I sometimes just get some minor discomfort which is pretty usual, but in my quads, it's a different story. This then leads to a slightly raised temperature and a mild headache and general malaise, like test 'flu'.

    Any tips or thoughts on what could be happening?

    Thanks.

    Not sure why just your quads give you grief.

    Maybe stop pinning them for a few weeks then try again. Could just be lingering irritation?

    Injecting in to quads has given a lot of people problems over the years. It's the easiest place to shoot so people will keep trying. You're better off switching between shoulders and glutes.

    when i first started using gear i would only pin my quads, but found that PIP in my quads could be significant enough that it would affect my ability to walk. now i only pin my glutes. PIP is just something that you have to deal with, but PIP in the glutes seems much more manageable than in my quads

    Weird how it affects people differently. Granted Ive really only being doing TRT levels of doses, but I've only used my quads going on 3 years with no issues.

    just an aside, Bodybuilder Dave Palumbo, really suggests NoT pinning the quads, too many nerves there i think, off the top of my head. as in he was vehemently against it. It's on yt somewhere.

    i assume youve been using insulin needles for SQ injections?

    the issues i encountered were with 22 gauge 1" syringes with test 400 and test prop 200. i dont remember any problems with nandrolone decanoate or EQ, but the test would at times cause severe pain. much more so than glute injections.

    No 27g 5/8" needles.
