Honestly not sure where to put this, but it’s getting to the point I feel I should give it some attention. Don’t feel like booking my PCP just yet either - they just like blaming everything on TRT lately.
I started TRT in June 2019, and I’d say some time (months?) later, I started getting this leg pain, mostly in the calves. It’s when I’m using them, but like climbing stairs and sometimes even going for a walk has started getting annoyingly painful.
I quit nicotine almost 2 months ago, and that helped a LOT, but it’s still there, and hasn’t improved at all in weeks. It happens whether I’ve had a leg or running day or not, and even after a 2 week break from the gym. Under more stress (like running on the street not in running shoes), it starts getting pretty damn painful.
I have gained some weight on TRT. Right before TRT, I dropped about 10lbs (muscle too) from being sick and spending a week in Paris eating Paris sized meals. So I went from about 155 to 145, and then up to 160 about 1-2 months after starting TRT. I’ve been as high as 170 since, but am closer to 165 now.
This something I should be concerned about? It’s sure as hell getting annoying as far as my lifestyle is concerned. Even just carrying groceries in now I feel like putting my legs up and taking a rest. Wtf!
