Heart Rate on First Test Cycle


#1

Has anyone ever noticed an increase in resting heart rate on test cycle? Sitting in bed typing at 120 bpm. Is that at all common?

End of third week in a planned ten week cycle - 500mg test per week. It seem like as soon as I go to bed my heart jumps to 120-130 which is why I haven't slept well since my last injection on Monday. My next injection should be tomorrow.

What should I do here. Reduce from 250mg to 200mg per injection? Stop all together?

I appreciate and help and advice in advance, thank you.

Stop altogether? Stop that crazy talk :smiley: but yes lowering or stopping is an option but first:

See a doctor and be honest with them (or however that works where you are for legality stuff)

Also...

I went through something similar. I am pretty sure I had heart burn and paranoia. Also probably slightly elevated blood pressure.

I heard my whole life that roids kill yada yada and that made what I was feeling so much scarier. But I spoke with a doctor who knew what I was going through...actually almost constantly for several days LOL
