Hi all.Im new to the site but already love it. I will ramble for a minute about what im going through, and hopefully someone can relate. Im 40 and have recently started trt. total pre trt testoserone was 225. Very low, I felt generally bad all the time. Was put on 200mg eow injections. retested after the 4th. total was 103. very very low. Now on 300mg eow and feel even worse. Cant even workout now due to cramping and joint soreness and water retention.
The initial response on the 200mg injections was awesome, I had great muscle gains and was the biggest Ive ever been.could workout for hours if I wanted to. By the 3rd and 4th 200mg injections I was wearing down. Still had the size , just started losing motivation. Once on the 300mg I feel horrible and cant workout at all. Lots of water retention in joints and muscle cramping when trying to workout.
So now My awesome gains are quickly going away. I have another lab scheduled in 2 weeks. Im going to have my E2 checked and see if i need some adex or something. I should be feeling great on this dose. anybody else have test count go down while on trt? I may need to split the doses in half and do 100-150mg per week. thanks for all the info and support on this site. Dave, oh btw I'm 6'2 and went from 225 to 235 after 1 month on the 200mg test and looked great. now weight is dropping due to not being able to workout.
