Had my first Sustanon shot (delayed puberty) 3 days ago and the injection site still hurts when I move my arm to certain positions. Is this normal?
Yes: I will assume you had the shot in your deltoid muscle - the upper part of your arm. A popular choice by many patients but it's a very small muscle so it is normal for it to be tender for several days after an injection. If you choose to have more of these injections consider asking for the shot to be in the long leg muscle - vastis lateralis. Try some ibuprofen for the soreness and heating pad. ...Read more

It is not uncommon or considered an "allergic" response. ...Read more

Yes: Sorry that happened. The symptoms you are describing though are normal. It's possible that a small blood vessel broke under the skin, or that your muscle is just cramping up around the area where the shot occurred. A little bit of time and it will be gone. In the meantime, for the pain, try some ibuprofen, 600mg. ...Read more
