I can't gain muscle at all. it's scary

First of all, sorry for my english i’m not fluent

I took dutasterid for a year and stopped taking it about a year ago
and i have this crazy symtom
No matter how hard i exercise, i can’t gain muscle at all
When I exercise in the gym, I get a lot of muscle pain the next day and it lasts for a week
It’s so intense that I can’t stretch my arms properly (When i work out my biceps i cannot even stretch my arms for a week because of muscle soreness)
It used to last only 2 days before i took dutasteride
Because of this muscle pain, I don’t want to exercise, but if I don’t exercise, I start to lose weight rapidly and I can’t build up my muscles again
I feel like i’m cursed and it makes me so depressed
And i got fat around my abdomen and I can’t get rid of it no matter how much I exercise
I can never get muscles and my face looks less manly
Anyone else experiencing similar symptoms or recovering from this?

Hey man,

I’ve been working out my whole life. I took finasteride for 2 months last summer. I also have trouble with working out now, I am WAY more fatigued now and muscle pain lasts much much longer.

Yes maybe is a type of ar silecing…

I don’t even know if I can workout now. Unfortunately another side effect that is not going to be easily recognised, because “you look normal to me”

I am really sorry to hear that, I know how it feels like. How long do you have muscle pain? Have you seen a doctor?
