Wasn't sure where to post this...but since you boys are probably the most knowledagble...and i feel the most comfortable...
Alright, here is the situation. Originally went to the Doc about 2 weeks ago to get a yearly physical and get the usual bloodwork done. Out of curiosity and some suspicions I had the doctor check a basic cortisol and testosterone (free and bound) as well.
Note: I had been feeling a lot more tired of late, and my cutting plans seemed to not be progressing as smoothly as normal, so I had a few questions in my mind. I havent done any cycling since ending in June followed by 3 weeks of nolva and clen, and the last cycle I had done was only 4 weeks of t1pro at a moderate dosing.
Well I got the initial test results back last wednesday, and while everything normal checked out perfectly, the test was significantly low and the cortisol very high. 2.2 (avg is around 2.5-8) and 28.1 (avg is I think 8-18) respectively.
I went back in Monday and got everything retested, along with FSH, prolactin, LH, and a few others. Results came back today.
FSH was normal
prolactin was normal
LH was a touch low but pretty normal.
Doc wants me to see an endocriniologist (sp), which is what will eventually happen, but I am heading overseas first for 3 months.
First, what can be causing this (delayed from t1pro??). Second, what can I do to alleviate the problems? I have noticed a significant strength and especially energy loss, and have stopped lifting all this week and only doing very low low intensity cardio. Any help would be great.
