Need some help.
I cannot seem to sleep longer than 4-5hrs at night. This only happens when I allow my estrogen to go unchecked without AI. Typical night is fall asleep hard at 10pm and wake up at 2am. I mean wide awake. So I lay there for 3hrs. It’s frustrating as hell. If it’s Friday or Saturday night I’ll reach for a benzo which will sedate me for another 2-3hrs max but trt is forever and i can’t deal with it. During the day I’m not yawning or tired and feel well rested but getting up at 2am and starting my day is not gonna work when I’m 70 and retired. I’ve done all the sleep medications and theory’s but I’m stuck. The only thing I’ve tried to do is stay up until 1am so I awake at 5 but when on trt I have no control of when I fall asleep. When I shut off I’m off.
Any advice? I need to raise my dose next week but I’m thinking that will only make it worse.
