Blood Pressure Test E Only

I have been using Test-e for the last 9 weeks, injecting 250 MG twice a week. I’m planning to finish at 10-12 weeks.

I recently had a spike in my bloodpressure, I noticed this after I got really dizzy and blacked out for a minute. I measured my bloodpressure and the outcome was 180 higher / 120 lower.

My blood pressure kept dropping and it’s sitting at 121 higher / 69 lower right now.

I’m concered what caused my bloodpressure to spike up. What factors could cause this problem?

I’m 24 years old, 95KG, 17% BF.

It could be from the testosterone or it could be totally unrelated. Pretty hard to give a diagnosis from one isolated event.

How is your level of water retention? Any other factors that could point to an e2 related cause?

So why are you asking internet Dr.'s instead of going to see a real one? If I had blacked out or spiked like that, my first thought wouldnt be to hop onto some internet forums.

Diet? Had you eaten recently? Fasting? Smoker? More than likely this is a combo of effects plus the T.

Was this during intensive, concentric or isometric exercise. If BP is hitting 180/120 resting, go see a doctor… or better yet go to the ER as 180/120 fits the diagnostic criteria for a hypertensive crisis… as in… acutely high enough too induce death or serious organ damage in a very short space of time

Maybe you freaked out and that caused the spike. Who knows. Regular BP checking is mandatory no matter if you are on Test/AAS or not. In your case check your BP twice a day. Anyway, it’s always a good idea to have and ACE Inhibitor at hand just in case you get an hypertensive crisis.
