Hey guys, frequent flyers on the board know I’ve had issues since I started my new TRT regimen. Some issues were expected and passed in their own time. Now I’m having some that I can’t understand because I’m past the “stable state,” point, feels like I’m in open, uncharted water.
I think what I’m experiencing is high E2, but I really can’t be sure. I had labs done last Monday and I felt just fine, maybe some anxiety a couple days before blood draw, nothing noteworthy at all. In subsequent days I’ve had some depression, sometime very intense but it goes away after a few hours. Other symptoms I WAS having but have not presented themselves/gotten better for two days now:
Excessive sweating (seems a little better)
Little urine production (gone)
Insomnia (better in last two days)
Night sweats (gone)
Face/ears flushing (gone)
Brain fog (still there)
I hadn’t done anything different until today. I lowered my dose slightly, 20mg to 15mg. However, I’m still having rapid heart rate when resting, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, cold extremities, muscle burning with little activity. My libido/arousal was fine for the last two days. Strength is fine, endurance is shit. Motivation is better but not great. No itchy nips or bloating. Blood pressure has been fine.
Current protocol is: 20mg EOD (15mg today), no AI.
