It’s been a few days since I posted, and since then, my symptoms are getting worse.
I’ve lost so much muscle mass in the past 6 weeks. I can feel popping noises whenever I move my arms or legs. I can’t even do 5 pushups without struggling. My back hurts.
I’ve spoken to a few doctors, and none of them know what’s wrong with me. They found protein and ketones in my urine. I have elevated calcium levels in my blood. They think it’s because I’ve been starving and dehydrated, which makes no sense, because I’ve been eating and drinking water regularly.
My stools still look weird with food scraps on them - It’s like my body can’t digest anything.
I don’t know what else to do. I may actually be the first person to actually die from finasteride that isn’t suicide related. I feel so weak. In my mind, I keep thinking how just 3 pills could destroy my body in just 6 weeks. All I wanted was to keep my hair, but I made my hair shed far faster than normal by taking just 3 pills of finasteride. I may lose all my hair by the end of the year. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, and I hate myself for putting myself in this situation.
I’m going to take a break from this forum. I don’t think anyone can help me. I hope to return soon with good news, but I’m not expecting to get any better. Good bye, all. And I hope you all are doing better than I am.
