I’m a complete noob here. I’m in my 50s and started TRT a couple months ago due to a really low T count (about 1/3 of what it should be at my age), and mostly for fatigue due to that. The sexual boost was secondary to me to just feeling better overall. I’m not a bodybuilder but I’m not out of shape either. Just a normal guy with a normal physique, who wanted to see it TRT could help me.
Well, I gotta admit I’m getting scared by all of the news reports of the last couple of days, linking TRT to heart attack risks, even in men under 65. I wonder if I can get some informed opinions here about all those. Would like to see what your take is on them.
I’ve been experiencing some interesting side effects since going on TRT:
- For a couple days after injection, I shiver more easily when it’s the least bit cold.
- Lately I’ve felt some tightness around my left chest area. That really concerns me. Sometimes I’ve wondered if my heart is OK. (Will get tested soon as part of a physical checkup.)
- A bit of restlessness at night. Not getting quality sleep, sometimes. Then I wake up feeling super horny.
- TRT gives me some weird gas problems on the day of injection and sometimes one day after. Just gas buildup, farting, not sure how else to describe it, lol, but it’s annoying. Then it subsides after the 2nd day.
My main concern is that if this stuff doubles or triples the chance of heart attack in older guys, then damn, it seems like it has to be a little hard on the heart for even healthy guys, then. It might not be double or triple, but it has to be some amount of potential harm, no?
Maybe I’m wrong. Would like to hear from you guys on this.
Oh, yeah…NO, this is not a “troll post.” Just in case some may think that. Everything you read above is just my own experience so far. I’m on the fence about this stuff and just looking for some informed people to chime in, that’s all. Thanks!
