I will try to keep this brief:
-In February of 2010 I started 100mg Test. per week. A few months later, I upped it to 150mg per week. But I had E2 related negative side effects, so I started taking arimidex 2mg divided per week. Everything cleared up. At that point, I had 1050 Testosterone and E2 in the teens.
-I have had mysterious lower left back pain for over a year now. It is located where my low back intersects my hips and slightly off to the left. It's not so much a pain, but an uncomfortable sensation. I can't emphasize this enough, it's not a sharp or dull pain, it's an uncomfortable feeling that feels like something mechanically isn't right in my back. It mainly occurs after sitting in a chair, or in my car, or on a soft surface such as a bed or sofa.
-I have no logical explanation for this sensation. It's possible that I injured it squatting or deadlifting, but I'm not sure.
-Insurance paid for an MRI. The doctor said I had a very slight bulging disc that was causing the sensation, and sent me to physical therapy
-Physical therapy sessions had the pain gone by the end of the session.....BUT, the pain always came right back as soon as I got in my car and started sitting and then went home and sat down. Basically the pain only went away when I was actively doing physical therapy during the PT session and came back as soon as the hourly session ended.
-Insurance then ran out.
-I took the only money I had ($1500 from scholarships) and went to a chiropractor. It hasn't improved one bit.
-I tried other things on my own such as sleeping on the floor, getting a supportive chair, getting a supportive cushion, a "treat your own back" book.
Could this be arimidex in action? The pain is localized to a very specific region. It is NOT an a dull ache or bone aching. But I wanted to check this over with you guys.
