Ok, been on TRT for several years now, switched to Testopel in May as I was tired of having to worry about the things you normally worry about doing it on your own—no bloodwork, questionable sources(although I never had issues with it), injection schedule etc…
So here is the questions I have for anyone doing this. My bloodwork came back with Total T levels not being that high(493) on my 4 week test but my free T levels being higher than the range. Obviously free T is what is important I assume but why is my total T still so low? That doesnt make much sense to me. Testing after 3 months showed my total T around 456 and free Test in the middle of the range.
My body seems to be very sensitive to androgens in general(reason why i can’t use anything stronger tham TRT…ive tried and my body tripped out…racing heart, high blood pressure, etc even when all precautions were taken), and the first week and a half to two weeks I had several instances where my heart would start racing for no apparent reason and remain elevated for a period of time. It wasn’t super high, maybe like 20-30 beats above normal but when you are standing or sitting still and your heart rate is going 110-120 it kind of trips you out. I assume this is because of the new influx of T my body was getting, and I had all the proper cardiac tests done including stress tests and a halter monitor for 48 hours there is nothing wrong…heart very healthy.
So I was wondering two things:
Is it possible my body is breaking down the testopel too fast during the first couple of weeks causing too much T to be released initally?
Why is my total T so low but my free T so high? I thought they kind of worked in tandem?
Has anypne else had similar experiwnces with the racing heart for the first week or two after the pellets were implanted?
