    Default Burning Vein Upon Injection

    I have pretty good veins, usually, and have never blown or otherwise totally fucked any of them up. I rotate a lot, use small, sharp points, practice good technique, etc.

    I did .2 of h last night, then this morning did the rinse of that and a shot of oxy at the same time... used the same vein.

    I've noticed, especially with the h, when I shoot into this one vein it BURNS like crazy. It feels like alcohol in my vein until it gets to the top of my arm, and only last for a second. The first time it happened I thought something was way wrong, because it feels so strange and alarming.

    I am not missing at all, I feel every bit of my shot there. It just burns. Ideas?

    Yeah... register, depress the plunger, then it burns for a minute.

    Obviously not gonna use that vein for a while... I am still curious though. Thought it was the dope at first but it seems to do it with oxy, too.

    Definitely not an artery... if my arm is outstretched with the palm of my hand down, its the vein on the topside of my arm, that runs all the way to the hand down the very middle. Its just strange and scared the shit out of me.

    It may be that vein is irritated and that is what is causing the burning sensation.
    Hitting an artery is an experience most don't forget. It is extremely painful and difficult to inject.
    I would stop using that vein for a while.
    Have you noticed any redness in that area?
    Are you filtering those shots of oxy well before injection?

    Keep an eye on that area and watch for any changes, such as redness, inflammation, and pain.

    That vein is irritated (phlebitis) so it screams when you mess with it some more.

    Are you using BTH? Does your shot taste really sour? You can balance your shot's pH by adding a little bit of baking soda.

    Candy, yeah, I double filter through tight cotton... and I have noticed a histamine reaction along the vein when shooting the h.

    Morefeen, no I'm using ECP.

    It may well be irritated... I hadn't really thought of that - never happened before.

    holy f--k! ive had the same exp. on a tube on the center of both my hands, so i wrote those two off. just 10 min ago, i slammed half a ML into a "new one" on my inner arm, registered ok, so let er have it, before i even got half the load out, my arm literally felt like i just poured LAVA into that pipe, everything from an inch below my elbow to my fingertips was cooking!!! ive never felt anything like that before in my life, unbelievable pain, followed by swelling and a blood red hand. it was my first time in that one, so its gotta be a nerve or an artery.

    dunno the condition of your veins but ive had a small number of times where that same vein(likely) LOOKED just fine, still does.
    but the blood in it is black and registers very weakly.
    if im foolish enough to try to push dope into it i find YES it hurts, doesnt fully get me high, and makes a ton of missed/leaking/infecting pools of filth in and around said vein.

    that vein may be done for.
    leave it be(AND stay away from anything connected to it)
    maybe it comes back and everything fixes itself.
    maybe it wont.
    maybe youll wind up in a much worse situation because you been ignoring your body and shooting there anyhow?




    also,
    after prepping anything, PH will usually do well with some adjustment...

    It could be a cut in your Heroin. I was reading something the other day saying that they are starting to find levamisole heroin.

It gets diluted by your blood quite a bit, so I dont think it is enough to completely denature the cells in your veins, but it does do some damage.

Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship - but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.”

    It was happening with oxy, heroin, whatever. I think it was just irritated; I stayed away from that vein and its all good. Thanks.

    pH varies depending on what part of the body you're measuring, but the blood is always kept at pH 7.4. Your body will kill you to keep your blood pH there.
