Has anyone hit a nerve while pinning glutes ?

Recommended Posts

Been in constant like nerve pain .

( It seems to travel from my glute to my knee to my foot. )

It's been near 2 months now after pinning 1ml test e in my upper outter glute

Trying to decide weather or not i tell my doctor about it ? 

or just wait and hope the pain goes.

 

Has anyone else experienced this ?

hey there Daz,  thanks for the reply.

It is a bit of a worry and a deep feeling nerve pain.

Looking at that diagram it feels like L5 maybe L4 at times.

When pinning on that occasion I did get a sharp pain as if I hit a nerve or something with the needle.

the pain has lessened but it's always there.

At the same time I did this I had to ride my motorbike full time because my ute broke down.

I wondered if riding the bike aggravated this as i was in severe pain riding each day.

After getting Ute back on the road the pain did settle down but is still there.

About 25 years ago I broke my femur  bone after being bowled by a car, but I have not had a pain like I'm experiencing at present.

Even elevating my leg don't give me relief.

I don't think my doctor could do much about this, as I'm sure i caused this issue ?

Going back to work on Monday, So I think I will just hope it gets better and the pain goes.

I'm off cycle now for another  10 or so weeks.

I'm wondering if the pinning is more likely coincidence , and that the real issue is spinal nerve entrapment/or not..?

 

Nerves are very small  and more likely would be displaced by the needle as opposed to being severed by it.. (which is unlikely as you'd no doubt experience sensory  disturbance and motor loss etc amongst other things below the site of  detachment)..

You could have damaged the outer myelin sheath and or nicked the axon, but not severed it,  although it is possible..

The central and peripheral nervous system do heal themselves after injury (in most cases).. Healthy fats (that's any fat other than trans fat) plus Vit B-12 assist in repair, make sure your diet is rich in these..

Thanks alot Daz,

I do eat pretty well, and i will add more healthy fats now I'm aware .

Because I have alot of scar tissue in my glutes from pinning,

 I had been trying to find new areas in top outter glutes. ( outter inner upper and lower But always in top outter area ).

Thanks again Daz , your knowledge  is bang on and much appreciated.

I'm at work Sunday so will ask around see if anyone specialises in that type of injury (don't hold out for a miracle)..lol 

Are you talking about ventro gluteal injections, they are quite popular..

hey Daz, 

Looks like I have been using Dorsogluteal site method?

found by dividing buttock in to four parts  +  and using the top outter portion to inject.

I've had trouble with scar tissue in this area for a long time.

I will look more into Ventro gluteal injections for my next cycle.

 

Cheers   👌

Hey Justin.. I've had a chat at work, noting you stated pain is not as bad as previously experienced, but still there..

Is there, or has there been anything abnormal in the limb below injury, such as pins n needles, loss of sensation, loss of motor control..??

It does sound like maybe you have hit a major nerve..

As long as there is still mild improvement, see how things go, but I do appreciate 2 months is longer than we would like or expect..

If no change ( improvement) after maybe 2 more weeks, you could visit your GP stating a Vitamin B-12 injection was responsible... :0)

Thanks Daz, yeah near 2 months is why I'm a lil  bit concerned. 

The pain has got less , most painful while seated watching tv at nights.

After putting this post up And hearing from you, has had me thinking .

This has happened around about 1 year ago aswell,

not as bad and it did come right eventually.  ( im conscious of this  because I run my dog alot And it makes running painful as. ).

I thought I had a tight sciatica nerve or something like that, caused from squats and leg press .

But the more I think about it , I'm thinkimg may be I had hit a nerve back then as well.?

Also I had something tear / rip in the same leg doing leg press About 18 months ago ( at a guess ).

I have never told my doctor about this issue.

My Doctor knows about my aas use from other issues I've had in the past.

He's not opposed to steroid use as long as there's no problems .

Thanks for looking into this  Daz, 

If it's still like this in 2 weeks time I will go see my doctor And take it from there.

Cheers Daz  😎

No loss of control, but I have had pins and needles in the past.

no loss of sensation .

And no loss of  motor control, however,

I don't have much flexibility in my groin area when lifting leg out to the side and I feel a constant pain that stops me from being flexable .

Weird  I know , a bit hard to put into words. 

I'm confidant that it's getting better though.
