So I've been on TRT for about 10 weeks now. My baseline T level was 338 with "Ultrasensitive E2 level" of 18 (<29). After being on Anastrazole (.25mg x 2 weekly) my follow-up labs showed my TT @ 989 & E2 @ 13.
I initially got on TRT due to low libido, lousy EQ, night sweats, mental fog, depression, and gaining fat/losing muscle. But mostly for the libido & erection issues really.
So far, I've noticed little improvement in these two issues. Everything else has improved greatly, and aside from a lousy sex life, I feel pretty good.
After much reading, I thought perhaps my E2 was too LOW, so I quit the AI two weeks ago. I am now having back/joint pain, trouble sleeping, a dull headache (last 4 days) and no real change in libido. EQ seems to have improved, but not necessarily frequency. I've also noticed the last two days it's been harder to breathe, like I have a chest cold, or allergies or something. Does this likely mean my E2 levels are too high now? Could they really shoot up that fast? Should I start back on the AI? I tried to stop the AI a few weeks back, but had joint pain and shitty sleep almost immediately after stopping, so I started back on it again. I thought maybe it was just coincidence, so I'd try it again.
I just started working with this doctor and I don't want her to think "Oh great, it's one of those guys", you know, self-diagnosing and all that. I just wanted to try to tweak things myself to see if I could solve my own problems.
As always, any suggestions are appreciated.
