Hi Guys, was diagnosed 1 month ago with an eye disorder called central serous retinopathy.
This is an rare eye disorder which is relative unknown and mostly linked to stress, typ a personalities & External Cortisone usage.
Recently, central serous chorioretinopathy has been understood to be part of the pachychoroid spectrum. In pachychoroid spectrum disorders, of which CSR represents stage II, the choroid the highly vascularized layer below the retina, is thickened and congested with increased blood vessel diameter, especially in the deep choroid the so-called Haller’s layer. This results in increased pressure from the deep choroid against the superficial choroid close to the retina, damaging the fine blood vessels capillaries needed to supply oxygen and nutrients to the retinal pigment epithelium and retina. Additionally, fluid can leak from these damaged vessels and accumulate under the retina.
So now i have an water bubble on my retina.
I literally have a somehow blurred vision problem on my left eye, what makes it somehow more difficult to read smaller letters on that eye.
Also objects are a little bit smaller and darker in the problem area on this eye.
It occured on a high stress period (work,wife,kids) while mixing a lot of substances and drinking and smoking heavy.
I was on 250mg Testosterone a week + 5mg cialis a day + 5mg pregnenolone a day + High doses piracetam + Cortisone Nosespray + Citruline Malat (NO Booster) + Hard Liquid
Hematocrit was also a little bit out of wrack for somehow 1-3months, until i donated blood.
I suspect that a lot of pregnenolone got turned in to Cortisone, additional to my nose spray.
Also that I was heavy aromatizing + that I had probably thick blood which was maybe not ideal with the Cialis and the no booster.
I stopped everything except the testosterone and brought that to an amount of 125mg a week.
I’m now at a maximum of one glass wine in the evening trying to cut down my bodyfat from 15 to around 10%.
Solved my personal problems relationship etc.
My doctor says that the healing is mostly about keeping stress away,
Adapting the lifestyle.
And that i should also quit with the testosterone, because it brings hormonal imbalance, while I would like to achieve physiological levels with an reasonable trt dosage.
I’m somehow scared to jump off cold after two years.
As PCT is no option, because Clomid, Tamoxifen and HCG are even more linked to the disorder than Testosterone.
I fear that this will make me a lot of short term trouble and will influence the healing by creating stress while i should avoid stress to allow my eye to recover.
Has anyone here experience with Central serous retinopathy?
