I am 20 years old. Im 6ft and weight around 155 pounds. I've been battling for 2 years with depression, anxiety, brainfog, inability to concentrate etc.
I was diagnosed with low testosterone in two tests (300-350 ng/dl), overall there was three but one of them was actually normal (600 ng/dl)
I was offered a trial to try Sustanon 250 every 2 weeks to see if it improved my feeling at all.
After my 3rd injection I started getting really hot feeling on my skin (normal temperature tough), heart pounding, fast heartrate around 80-90 (my normal is around 65),
terrible migraine headaches, blue/purple toes/fingernails occasionally, really severe shortness of breath.
I went to ER atleast 3 times, every time they did ECG and found nothing. Said I was anxious, prescribed meds and sent me home.
I was really, really scared so I decided to not take the next testosterone injection. After a month, this feeling didn't pass I read about estradiol
and went to check my E2 levels. They were in the middle of range (70 pmo/l). I retested after another month
had passed because the feeling hadn't just stopped, it was little bit lower than before (50 pmo/l).
I went to several doctors. I had an echocardiogram and stress test, I had this very bad feeling in the chest
several days, including in the testing, but they found nothing critical. I did got diagnosed with
mitral valve prolapse and mild valve regulation, but they said this was nothing to be afraid of,
check it out again in few years. These might explain something, but I only got the heart symptoms after testosterone. I am really hopeless.
My overall feeling is like I am about to have heart attack or something at any time, but it has
been like this for several months now. Lately I've been sweating a lot, feeling really nauseous and overall just really sick.
I then suspected hyperthyroid, but fT3 and fT4 are both midrange (they were in the very upper range before tough.)
And my TSH has gone from hoovering around 2 to 0.65 in just few months, but this wasn't any cause of action to doctors neither.
So other suspicion was E2 levels, but apparently bloodtest shows them normal.
My AM cortisol (bloodtest) was high normal last autumn , but now it was midrange.
Prolactin was normal according to doctor. Lowish Vitamin D and B12 was found.
I also suspected blood clot because of the shortness of breath, but they took the bloodtest
twice which would show if I had one and it was negative. And also I am still alive two months after that so obivously
it cant be blood clot or anything?
I just feel that something is really messed up inside my body and causing me to feel very, very ill. The worst thing is, I don't know what is the cause. Something is wrong, causing all these horrible symptoms. Im having this intense chest tightness all the time
and redness in the face, along with the feeling of really hot. My skin also burns occasionally. Heart pounding is really awful feeling and I am feeling weaker. Occasionally I get some pain around kidney region,
but both my kidney and liver tests were fine. Also this weird pressure in my head all the time. At one point I had so bad migraine that I had to go into IV meds in hospital to stop the attack. I don't know what the heck I am going to do next.
My symptoms are very very scary but so far nothing has been diagnosed. Also my eyes are sometimes red and feels dry.
What would be the next course of action? Could it still be high E2 even tough bloodtest
says nothing? Could I just be really sensitive to estradiol changes? This situation is obiviously putting some kind of stress on my body as
i've seem to have some circulation problems and fast heartrate which cant be healthy for prolonged time and this has
already been little over 3 months this way.
I've scheduled an appointment to endorcrinologist
end of this month but I feel like I can't handle this anymore. Besides, so far my hormone levels
have been in the acceptable range. But this is not normal feeling by any means. Any advice? I bought some DIM, but haven't
tried it yet. I read that it can lower E2 levels. Could this help even tough my E2 is "ok" by bloodtest?
'Cause what I have been reading, these could be symptoms of high E2 and I can't see any other possible reasong for how I am feeling. Im going to call my doc next week when he will be available but he can't prescribe me an A.I if my E2 levels says normal, can't he?.. This can't go on for much longer, my skin is really hot all the time and I feel 5x worse than before. Any suggestions please?
Oh, and one more thing is, how I am suspecting estradiol is that I have seem to put on a little bit of breast tissue. There is tiny lumps under my nipples, I can feel them. But why the heck is my E2 level showing normal? All help is gladly appreciated.
