My Official Case:
Height: 5-10, Waist: 33in, Weight: 165lbs
Always been on the lean side. Currently losing muscle size, strength, tone.
Have body hair but not a ton, slightly receding hairline, always been active but less active the past two years. Right now I ride my mountain or road bike about twice a week. Not currently doing any weight training.
Alrighty guys - I think my original post was too wordy and overwhelming.
I need some help and guidance.
About 6 months ago I thought I was starting to die. I had no energy, no drive, lost majority of my muscle, moody, depressed, anti-social, and aches so bad I could barely get out of bed sometimes.
I have always been active and relatively healthy. Able to work long days, and focus on things when I need to. I cant do that at all anymore.
I am 8 weeks from my bachelors degree but its almost impossible for me to study, focus, or even have the desire. - This is my biggest concern right now - the mental stuff. I need to get through the last two months of school.
I started TRT 8 weeks ago. About week 4&5 felt great. I could concentrate and really get things done. At week 6 I started going down hill.
I fortunately have a good doc who will work with me (has so far)
The doc prescribed me 100mg test Cypionate every 10 days. I halved the dose and do it every 5 days to avoid such drastic peaks and valleys.
I have an appointment tomorrow and will be asking about my high E2 and asking for an AI.
I also am going to bring up HCG because I’m worried about my boys.
How do I know if I’m going to be on this forever or temporarily?
Can adrenal fatigue cause low T?

Is an E2 of 50 high? This needs to be closer to 22 right? Will this help with my brain fog?
Anything else that causes alarm or I should look into with these labs?
I have a Dr. appt tomorrow.
Feedback/guidance is appreciated.
Im anxious/desperate to figure this out so I can finish school and keep my job/wife.
Thanks in advance.
…this post is still way long. My estrogen is obviously way too high. Heh.
