Hey guys, I need your advice cause I have no idea whats going on.
Long story short, I was on 200 mg of test, I checked my bloodwork and I had high TT (1.400, 300-1.200), my FT was mid range and my E2 was 81 with 71 being the top of the range. I started taking arimidex (1.5 mg per week) and slowly lowered my dose. I went to 160mg per week with 1.25mg Arimidex per week for 8 weeks and last week I went to 140mg per week with .5mg twice a week (I inject twice per week). My SHGB is low-ish (21).
I injected 70mg on Monday 11/14/2016 and took .5 arimidex. I felt like a god for the next 2 days, the best I’ve felt on TRT. On Thursday 11/17/2016 I injected another 70mg and took another .5 arimidex. The next day I felt awful. Sleepiness,low libido,dry lips,dry skin (though I’ve had that for some time now),fatigue, tired eyes, depression. All these seem like low E2 symptoms so I dropped the AI and didn’t take any after my Monday injection. I feel a little better but still not OK.
I have no idea whats going on guys. The only other thing I’ve changed is that I started Metformin 3 months ago. My insulin was 20 mU/L (3-23) and my fasting glucose was 102mg/dl (70-110). My doc said that I have some insulin resistance and that may be tha cause of my lowish SHGB.
Is it possible that I raised my SHGB and I dont aromatise so much? Or maybe that I just don’t need so much arimidex at 140mg of test? None of the above? I am going to get bloodwork tommorow but I really need your opinion on this one. My thyroid was working OK the last time I checked. Plus if my E2 is low, how long will it take to bounce back?
