Hi gents first time post here, sorry for this being long but I am after some assistance from you all if possible.
My name’s Simon 42 years old, last July I started on TRT as I was feeling dreadful no energy, no libido poor strength in erections ( this is prob since the age of 20) and more common sides of low T.
So I went to a private pharmacy had my test level and prostate checked the later was fine my test level came back as 3. Yes 3.
So I started on 50mg testogel a day, i did feel better almost instantly and after 8 weeks my test level raised to 22 which was great.
Just I wasn’t keen on the method of application as I love to give my child a big hug in the morning and was feared of passing any gel on to her and onto the wife.
So I paid privately a lot of money for injections which I started in October. I took 150mg test E every 5 days at first but was told to take 150mg every 7 days as my readings were high.
Now on this I felt amazing I really did had loads of energy my body started to change I could see more muscle starting to appear but more importantly my erections confidence and energy felt great I felt human again started to go the gym and run.
Now here’s the thing from the very first injection I had this like cotton wool labyrinthitus kind of feeling in my head not dizzy but kind of like you get after a few beers and you start feeling tipsy.
I was fine before I started on the injections.
In December I had bloods done and these were the results.
Oestradol 244 41-159
Testosterone 37.1 7.6-31.4
Shbg 21 16-55
Free androgen index 170 24-104
Free test 1.070 0.3-1.0
Prolactin 1000 86-324
My prolactin was high as I did the blood test at the end of the day and I’d just been for a 6 mile run.
After these results I was given androlone I think was the name of the tablets and told to take half a tablet every 3 days.
I did felt a tad less strange in my head but still not right.
Today as I type this I still have the strange head feeling and I am back on gels, not injected for about 3 weeks.
I’m gutted I would of loved to have stayed on injections but I just want this head feeling to sod off.
Like I say from the very first injection this feeling appeared.
I’d appreciate any help at all as I’ve read posts from you all and you all know far more than my GP.
Look forward to your replys.
