    33 TRT appointment tomorrow


    First off, I am so thankful for the info I've found on these forums. I've been dealing with fatigue and anxiety for over a year. I had been training Crossfit and associated my fatigue with my training. My cousin passed of cancer recently, so I assumed my depression and anxiety were because of this. My doctor prescribed me antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds. I felt like I found the solution to my anxiety but, the fatigue remained...so much that It would take me days to recover from mild exercise routines. On a flight I had a conversation with someone who was using similar medications but was also on TRT. He recommended that I at least ask my doc about it. My blood test showed my T levels at 200 so, my doctor recommended TRT. I said that I would research it first,

    So, after months of lurking here and other forums I'm finally ready to try TRT. I will be discussing with my doctor all of the info I've found. I'm very excited and look forward to sharing my results and hopefully my progress here.

    So your doctor decided to put you on TRT by just checking your test levels? If you have spent the time you say on here and researched, then you already know that is a very bad idea. You really can't tell jack from just test levels. I'd hope your doc decides to run through all the scenarios and tests that are needed.

    I'm talking about a full panel testing thyroid and anything else that could contribute to low test. Basically everything that matrix rightfully preaches about.

    Search matrix threads he has started and find all the labs you need done then post. May need to dig deeper with his help.
    Your situation sounds similar to mine, where my test was low and dr wanted to try antidepressant route first. Didn't really experience an improvement so started gel again initially felt ok but after shut down found the right person and have been on injects since January and feel great. E2 is managed with arimidex
