    I got shot up today, and noticed that there were air bubbles in the syringe... I dont think any were injected into me, but they almost were! Does it matter in your shoulder?!

    Not a problem...Huge amounts can make you stroke, though.

    BTW, there is going to be air bubbles when they draw it up, but most people remember to aspirate.
