i was just reading through some forums and i was very impressed with the knowledge and responses floating around on here between you guys. i’m looking for some ideas to get rid of the fatigue,libido and other issues i’m having.
the background: fell 60 feet off of a cliff and broke my back. everything slowly diminished from there. libido, energy, muscle mass, fat increased but slowly over a 3 year period. i started taking creatine and before i knew it i was taking 30g a day just to get through my day, workout and get up the next morning. i stopped the creatine for blood work and instantly got fat 10%bf to 15% in 6 weeks, couldn’t recover from a workout and couldn’t get out of bed.
Test results, T-400, E2-<20 too low to read, SHBG-20, LH and FSH VERY Low in Range
Prescribed, Tcyp 75mg 2x weekly - felt great for 3 weeks then everything fell off
Test results after 2 weeks - T-986, E2-20
Test results after 4 weeks - T-560, E2-38, SHBG-19
Prescribed, Tcyp 100mg x2 weekly, hcg 500 x2 weekly, adex .5 2x weekly
i’ve been on the tcyp hcg adex combo for 4 weeks now and for the first 2 weeks i felt amazing. good as new and now back to nothing. i look better, more vascular, bodyfat is lower again and feel like shit. i can’t get out of my own way and spent the entire weekend in bed again. i have no desire or drive for anything and cooking breakfast feels like running 5 miles. i’ve read a few guys talking about prolactin, progesterone, dopamine dht and thyroid.
post tcyp only results:
Prolactin - 5.6 (2.6-13.1)
Progesterone - .88 (.14-2.06)
DHEA-S - 154 (85-690) started taking 50mg dhea ed
DHT - 365 (106-719)
TSH - .8 (.34-3.5)
T3 - 125 (87-187)
T4 - .9 (.5-1.6)
IGF-1 - 260 (before any trt)
I’m lost at this point. My T and E2 levels with the cyp/hcg should be pretty good. There isn’t anything else out of line on my lab results. dht seemed to be the bandaid with creatine. would gels be a better route for me with their dht raising properties? Had a girl pop by yesterday that i went peter north on 2 weeks ago and gladly she didn’t go there because i would have been looking for popsicle sticks and duct tape. i’m tired all of the time, can’t remember anything, can’t think clearly and can’t focus on anything. Any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated! thanks
