Hi, I’ve been having brain fog, depression, anxiety, restlessness, easily stressed-out, insomnia and bunch of other symptoms for years. Right now I’m working with a functional medicine doctor. One of the lab test show I have Low T.
I’m not really looking to do TRT because the side-effects worry me, and I dont like the idea of having to be dependent on it for the rest of my life. So I said to my doc that I prefer to try to increase it naturallly and he’s okay with it.
But he suggested to try one shot of TRT and see how I feel. He wants to get an idea how Low T is affecting me, if it is the main cause of my symptoms before pursuing the natural route, because he said trying to increase it naturally is a long process. My symptoms may be caused by other things.
So my questions are :
Is injection the fastest way to feel anything? I’m looking for it effects on brain fog, mood and anxiety.
Will doing one injection enough to feel anything? If it does, how long before I can feel something?
Do I have to worry about side-effects from doing one injection?
Do I have to worry about it shutting down natural T production from one injection?
