For a long time, I’ve been facing social anxiety and awkwardness symptoms. I’ll just break down the symptoms I face:
. Mild anxiety when walking in crowds or crowded places.
. Mild anxiety when making simple small talk.
. Inability to maintain the flow of conversation at times.
. Difficulty in maintaining prolonged eye contact.
There have been times where my anxiety just vanished completely. I will again just make a breakdown of moments in my life when this was the case.
I took a 15mg Zinc Gluconate supplement before bed and within 2-3 days, my social anxiety and anxiety in general vanished completely. My voice was deeper and louder, I felt dominant and I felt soo good. As a matter of fact, I felt soo good that I could not feel down and de-motivated regardless of how tense a situation was.
However, much to my surprise and disappointment within 5-7 days, I returned to my former anxious self even though I was taking the supplement daily.
What changes could the Zinc have made in those few days ?
Could it be that it lowered my Estradiol ?
Can high estradiol cause social anxiety ?
I took a multi-vitamin which included all key vitamins and minerals for men. Once again, after two days I noticed a big difference. My morning erections returned, my voice was deeper and louder, my anxiety reduced significantly and my energy was good.
However, just like before for some odd reason within a week, the energy and vigour went away even though I take the supplement daily.
I’m really confused what the problem could be because I get regular strong morning erections. I don’t have any issues with that since taking the multi-vitamin for men but my anxiety and awkwardness remains.
Please help me guys. I just don’t know what the issue could be and due to family circumstances I can’t get bloodwork. I really wish I could get bloodwork and I know there’s no excuse but my personal situation is different.
Please note I’m not on TRT but couldn’t find the appropriate forum to post my concerns.
I appreciate the help.
