arimedex: as needed.

Here are some issues I’m having currently
- scalp breakout and hair thinning since starting but have had these before any trt treatment and went away on its own. Could DHT or something else be the issue or is it something else as I’ve had this before trt. I want to avoid fin or dut as that would seem counter productive to what I’m trying to achieve aside from long term effects of those meds.
2 gained about 10lb which is water but in the belly its really showing. Bothersome as I’ve been actively working out and no change in diet. I tried .25 of arimdex e3d but makes me feel like shit. I’m considering aromasin in place as I’m also worried about lipids as Ive had high numbers before.
Dhickey, was DR… willing to offer hcg when you went in?
3 It isnt until about day 3 after shot that I start to feel better but I guessing I still need some more time for my body to stabilize the increase in test. Possibly thinking about lowering dosage to 150mg per week and see if that helps with bloat and uneasiness.
The doctor mentioned that hashi is a possibility but wants to try this and see how I react. I think I remember him saying i was scraping the bottom of the barrel with my thyroid and other tests but didnt want to start any treatments just yet. ( I will ask them for my labs tomorrow)
did not get prescribed hcG as I was kind of in a fog when talking to him and briefly mentioned it but as I’m 32 I really would want to include that as part of treatment as I want another child in the future and also i’m starting to get some aches. He might scrpt it on our next visit. Otherwise i will have to go underground but again that’s something i’m having a tough time finding. (not sure but if anybody has a verified source I’d appreciate it.)
still waking up very cold and in physical pain. docs still haven’t had a finger on that but i honestly can’t live like this continually using pain meds my whole life. weird thing is the worst pain is in the morning right out of bed and i feel like i either have a hangover or flu every single morning.
I’m also going to start this iodine plan to see if does explain some issues I have and possibly might be a thyroid issue.
I guess my biggest issue right now is my hair, scalp and bloat that’s depressing but will cutting my dose help this? why is it that i start to feel better on the 3rd day and feel like crap day after injection?
Kind of worried to try iodine as it can be counter productive if hashi is the case.
Update: bloat slightly going down. hair still inflamed and white pimples and thinning. Stomach pain has reduced but body ache is still severe in the morning and not as bad through out the day.
anything you see with Thyroid that could be an issue KSman? I made a new thread as the old one was mixed in with looking for a trt doc but since Ive found one I felt this thread would serve a better foundation for questions and answers.
