I have had low testosterone for over 32 yrs due to a head injury that damaged my Pituitary. It tells your body to make hormones so I have to treat my low Testosterone,Cortisol, Thyroid and Growth Hormones. Due to the low Growth Hormones I ended up with 2 blockages going to my heat and I needed Heart Bypass Surgery 3 yrs ago. After this Dr.'s told me to go on Statin Drugs I did not want to take them meds but the told my wife and kids I would not live out the yr. if I did not go on them
I knew about the Sides and never had low Chol. in my life. Now last yr. Sept. my pain was so dam bad on them Statin Drugs I could not stand up or walk. Now Dr.'s listened to me and took me off the Statin Drugs but it was to late they damaged my muscles and I am in a lot of pain.
I was on 3 pain meds one the FDA took off the market Darvocet and this one worked very good for me no sides.
I was then put on Vicodin 3x's / day but this slowed down my voiding and I ended up with a bad bladder infection and did not know it due to the infection.
We could not get rid of the dam infection until they took me off Vicodin and put me on â?¢ Norco/Lortab acetaminophen/hydrocodon 10 mg/325 mg PO Tab. 3xâ??s / day.
I know a lot about low Testosterone in men and work as a mod at this forum helping men.
So they don't need to go down that road I did it took me 23 yrs being told I am Primary and I am not.
Anyway my problems now on this new pain med Norco is it lowered my Total Testosterone levels and made my Estradiol levels go why up. I take Aromasin 25 mgs to keep my Estradiol levels down. I only needed it one pill every 3 days now on Norco I need 2 pills every 12 hrs.
I break out in a sweat on the top of my head, face and upper body and feel panic problems.
I do a Test C shot every 3 days 70 mgs and this dam med lowered my testosterone levels from 1125 down to 550 in just the first 2 weeks on it.
So my Dr. had me doing a test C shot 40 mgs every day for 2 weeks to get my levels up.
And we cut the Norco dose down to 2 pills / day.
I have been back on my Test C shot e3d but now it's 80 mgs. I was feeling better but started back on e3d on my test C shot last Monday and yesterday I had to waves of sweats and Panic feelings yesterday.
Is there a pain med that works good but dose not mess with hormones. I can't see doing this much testosterone and taking this much Aromasin just to stay on this pain med.
This is a copy of a post on Nov. 9 right now I am back on 70mgs of Test C shots E3D and not doing any HCG. We have cut the dose of Norco down to one half a pill 2x's / day.
I am starting to think Aromasin does not work anymore and other men at forums said Aromasin after being on it for a time stopped working.
Has anyone here had this problem with needing more Aromasin to keep E2 in check.
I am thinking about switching to Letrozole is anyone using this if so how did you start on it and how much do you need to keep Estradiol E2 in check.
Estradiol as been a big problem for me for many yrs just can't find a way to keep it down.
