Hey there y'all,
So I have been and currently are conversing with KSman but I did want to throw my labs and issues out there for anyone (like brick and bonez) with other good advice and input as I would be much appreciative.
I have been under the impression that I have been suffering from Low T since before Janurary this year and from estrogen problems for about 4+ years. Of course Dr, Uro and Endo said Im fine. After speaking with KSman he recommended I take 2 drops of arimidex ED, so I have.
1) Pec fat (also from the new thing Poliquin talked about Ive noticed stubborn tri, chest, and quad fat. Im pretty lean else where but have a hard time being lean in those areas)
2) Zero morning wood (it happened once this past week and I almost cried I was so happy)
3) Emotional Changes
4) Decreased Muscle mass/gains
5) Decreased mental quickness/sharpness
6) Decreased energy/strength endurance (this is still off and on)
7) Night sweats/trouble sleeping (this has cleared up)
8) long length of time for recovery from workouts
and more recently:
9) comple lack of energy/wanting to sleep several times a day (this is still a problem)
9) dizziness upon standing.
will just list everything but at the bottom is what Im currently taking.
Past Meds/ supps:
bipolar/antidepressent meds (i only remember effexor and zoloft.)
Creatine-test boosters- methyl 1 T- size on- super pump- recoup- vasocharge- beta alanine- saw palmetto- tribulus- zma- somatomax- longjack- fish oil- liver cleanse herb. those are things I have taken in the past 5 years. Not for 5 years, im not that stupid, but things I have tried, that was stupid.
B Vitamin complex - Vitamin D - zinc - ZMA - fish oil-- arimidex, just added Receptormax and Flameout, turmeric --this is all I am currently taking.
Caffeine: used to be into it heavy, nothing crazy maybe 2 cups a day. For the past month, no caffeine at all. I was worried about adrenal fatigue so Im not drinking it. Im now concerned of pancreas malfunction and worried im not digesting everything too well so Im gonna start a super enzyme and see if that changes my energy. (I have started back on caffine(coffee) no more than a cup a day and not even everyday)
Alcohol: I was an alcoholic for the past 7 years pretty much. I dont drink anymore. Im only 24 and I started drinking when I was 15. Heavy from the end of highschool until last September. I know its done damage. I did smoke and smoke weed throughout college. The endo blamed my gyno on weed.

Im looking to get rid of the chest fat and get my mojo back. Estrogen is down, yes, but may not be my "sweet spot."
Also if it makes a difference in the past 4 months I have been under watch for a testicular cyst. They havent determine if its a hydrocele, spermatocele or a varicocele. THey have done no testing just monitored size.
Thank you anyone who can help.
