Hi all, I started 2x weekly progesterone injections (4mL each time in the upper butt cheek) a few weeks ago and I am struggling so much with muscle soreness and pain afterwards. I have tried doing it myself, having my husband do it, I take a hot shower right before then foam roll before and after and sit on a heating pad for a while. Every time i have horrible, debilitating muscle pain for 24 hours after, I am limping and just in tears. Not an injection site issue, but severe muscle soreness. It’s worse in my right hip. Has anyone had this issue?
I’ve considered maybe a shorter needle or smaller dosage?
I try to relax my muscle each time but it does twitch every time I inject the needle.
