Any input greatly appreciated.
30 yr, m, 6'2" 250 muscular build currently about 20-22%BF
For a while now been feeling extremely sluggish; if I don't manufacture some artificial energy, strong coffee, caffeine pills, supplements, etc, I just don't feel well. Cognitive ability, remembering things in the short term, focus -all declined alot over last few years. No motivation. I grew up playing sports, working out frequently, not often enough tho, never done much cardio outside of sports.
I also work shift work, 12hr shifts, rotating from days to nights each week.
I went to doctor at work to get labs and asked for testosterone check.
Came back 344 total t.
Went to clinic and doc immediately put me on axiron after an initial tes shot. I did that for a week, hated it, asked him Monday to put me on shots, got another shot, and he prescribed me to self inject weekly .5ml tes cyp, which I was thinking of splitting into 2x a week at half the dosage.
He also prescribed hcg, to be taken via 500 unit sublingual trouches, every 3 days. Took first one yesterday.
I've been reading so much over last few weeks, asking questions. So much conflicting advice, which is understandable, yet frustrating.
Just found this site today. Been reading all morning.
I'm just overwhelmed and can't retain much info as it is, just worried and wondering which direction I should go, what information I should persueat this point.
The shot on Monday, I could really feel the boost. It made me want to lift weights, which I did, first time in months. As well as on Tuesday, GREAT workouts, felt like I could just keep going. Rested Wednesday, back to work this morning, feeling good overall tho.
I'm just wondering if I need to slam the breaks, look into anything, check things out another way. I just don't want make a long term mistake, if thereasonfor my low testosterone could be solved otherwise.
Thanks for listening guys, your help will be very much appreciated.
