39 year’s old and been on and off TRT since 2014. The last round was back in 2018. Unfortunately, the PCP route never yielded good results. Finally found a clinic I thought was good, but I’ve come to realize recently that there are some red flags based on the labs they’ve been pulling. Currently on an AI (0.75 split weekly), HCG 250 IU – Cyp 200mg/mL – Prop 20mg/mL – (total 170mg / 0.85ml), once weekly pin. Been symptom free until 2 weeks ago. I’ve had terrible anxiety, shortness of breath, brain fog, sleepless nights, wake up with terrible sleep inertia, and libido and erections are nil for the last 30 days. I’m interested to hear thoughts on my labs as well as symptoms that have come on recently. I’ve also reached out to Defy and Low T Nation to get a better grasp of my options to turn things around.
Edit: 5/31/2020 - went to ER as shortness of breath and anxiety persists. Only getting 3 hours of sleep a night. Been trying to donate blood for the last 2 weeks since symptoms came on, but 1) blood has been too thick and they give up on the donation, or 2) they can’t find a good vein and turn me away…so I haven’t been able to get any relief from donating blood. Hematocrit and hemoglobin still high. What else can I do other than keep trying to donate?
Also, how would you split my TRT protocol above to possibly reduce symptoms? Split straight in half and pin twice a week? Looking for the best route to reduce symptoms but still allowing time for body to adjust. Should be getting onboard with Defy or Low T Nation this week but also worried about skipping an injection and making things worse. Appreciate any additional suggestions.
