Hey everyone. I’m new to the forum and would like to say I have learned alot in the past few weeks I have been lurking on this site. First, a little bit about me:
I’m 34, 195 lbs and 13% BF. Been lifting for about two years. I eat healthy, rarely drink and have never used steroids. Over the last year or so I seem to have become over emotional. The type of emotional where I damn near want to cry when I see something sad on TV. About six months ago I noticed that one of my nipples became swollen and was very sensitive. That has since gone away but I am still feeling very over emotional.
I recently went to see the doctor since I have had a lack of energy and my libido has become very low. He did a blood test to check my test. level, thyroid and liver. He called me back in a few days later saying that my testosterone level was on the low side but I didn’t get any numbers. I’m not even sure the he checked my E2 level. He said that alot of people feel fine with my levels but he thought I should start TRT. I now realize that I was nieve in saying OK so quickly without fully understanding what TRT truely was.
The nurse gave me a shot of test and told me to come back in a month. She said if I begin to feel a crash, to come back in three weeks. Well, I felt good for about five days. Better energy and I got wood if my GF even winked at me. Then I began to feel worse than before. I feel like curling up in a ball and crying like a little girl.
I upped my dr. appointment by two weeks and going to talk this over with him and try to get all the numbers from my blood work and to see if he even checked my estrogen levels. Thanks to this thread, I am armed with a bit more knowledge and have printed some info off for the dr. to look at.
Is it possible to have test levels on the low side and have high E2 levels and feel this way? I am wondering if my estrogen is way high and causing me to feel like an eight year old girl. Sorry for the long post but I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed and scared by the thought of having to go through TRT the rest of my life. Does anyone know a good dr. around Spokane Washington? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
