Thanks for the discussion guys... I only have 5 days left of the tp so I'm gonna finish it out...
I found an interesting study in 5 HTP that too much can suppress dopamine levels and in turn raise prolactin. Turns out my sleep aid that I have been double dosing contains about 50mg per dose.... So 100mg 5htp for me is FAR too much... Heck 50 can be no good at times (I've known this for a while)..... So I'm thinking the prolactin could have been from that, and a fat burner I was using that has high levels of PEA.....
So I dropped the fat burner, cut the sleep aid dose in half, and will monitor the situation. In sure my dr will order another set of bloods on Monday once he sees these (he was away Friday)!

Adrenals and possible thyroid are shot to hell. I can not emphasize more. CHECK ADRENALS AND THYROID PROPERLY BEFORE STARTING TRT..As I can see this was probably never evaluated properly. You could also be vitamin D deficient or body may be in a major state of acidosis from high calcium to maintain proper alkalinity. I would suggest PTH serum ASAP

Dude. Get help with the OCD and body dysmorphia.
You have very little lean body mass. Eat well, lift well, rest more, enjoy your life.

2 Corinthians 12:5-10
I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
"More and more people today are concerned with their physical fitness and good health. But what about our spiritual fitness? I know you made us and you want us to take care of our bodies, but more important is our spiritual health. Paul told Timothy to "Train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and life to come" (1 Timothy 4:7-8). Please help me to also work on "firming up my faith" in addition to firming up my body, so that I will be pleasing to you and an example to those around me. I want to grow closer and closer to you and would love to bring others along with me. Lord, anoint me. In Jesus' name I pray, amen"Seems like I don't grow no matter what. I actually seem to get leaner and more muscular over the course of a deload or complete off week...
I mean no disrespect by sharing my faith (not religion) with you.

I'm gonna get "for my power is made perfect in weakness" added to one of my half sleeves now. Seriously. I love this passage now and it's beyond fitting and has caused me to do some serious soul searching and put things into perspective. Thanks again.

I am also seeing the dr today at 2 to go over these results and see what, if anything, he thinks we should do. I'm kind of hoping for some
Adex... And hoping the powerfull I started taking Friday night will assist with the prolactin.

Everything is going well here. My mood has been amazing the last 8-9 days.. I realized I was taking too much 5htp which can increase prolactin via a reduction in dopamine....... So I fixed that and made some other minor changes in supplementation and diet and I'm leaning out, hardening up, and getting stronger... And feeling great while doing it! Thanks for the help in here
