Hey everyone, I’m currently at a loss. Seems like my whole HPTA is screwed up, so I’m not sure where to start. I have chronic low energy, brain fog, muscle weakness, no motivation, ED, low body temp, the whole nine yards. I was cutting last year with Keto, which is when I felt the best, but have been maintaining for months with carbs and have felt terrible since.
I had a pituitary MRI come back as negative and currently have prescriptions for Test, Clomid, and HCG wondering which protocol to start. I really don’t want a life long commitment, but I would like to feel normal again. The highest I have ever seen my testosterone was 240 when I was 20 pounds heavier, so weight loss cannot be the cause.
Ocassionally after I eat, I get very intense brain fog and constantly stutter like I’m drunk, with accompanying dizziness. This seemed almost like prediabetes symptoms, no?
My endo wanted to do a “restart” with 100mg of clomid, but I read that clomid would just make my high SHBG worse.
Any thoughts are appreciated! I would very much like to be active and able to lift again.
