Recently I have been waking up freezing cold, but I also sweat a lot at night. I decided to go look at my last set of labs and noticed my TSH increased quite a bit over the first year on TRT. My T3 is also high. I was on 200mg Test Cyp a week, split into a shot on Monday and a shot on Thursday, 250units HCG on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and .5 to 1mg of Anastrozole on Tuesdays and Fridays. I am also on 60mgs of methadone(started on 120mgs) every day for an opiate issue which is what I believe caused my low T to begin with.
I had my last set of bloods taken on a Monday morning before my shot so my testosterone levels should have been at their lowest, but they were still very high. I have since lowered my dose to 160mg per week, still split into two shots.
I guess I’ve been noticing the waking up freezing for a while now. It seemed to go away when I first started TRT, but its back. I’ve always slept like shit, wake up to pee once a night. I play Ice hockey 2-3 days a week and try to do full body workouts on MWF. If I use salt it iodized, but I would say I don’t use it very often. I take Magnesium, Vitamin D, Desiccated Liver Pills and Fish oil pretty much daily. Eat pretty good. I should probably mention I have had a few bad concussions in the past year or two.
I plan on getting new bloods soon, but want to make sure I don’t miss any important tests. Waking up right now sucks! Your help is much appreciated!
Edit: should probably add I am 34, will be 35 in a month or so.
