Guys. This is so worrisome. I was okay for a while now. Never had complete ED and sleep was good for like past 5 months and suddenly now I’m having sleep issues. Waking up suddenly with hot flashes and unable to go back to sleep. This all started right after I actually started going to gym, running and eating healthy.
I am so surprised that the symptoms returned when I started doing this cause this is supposed to elevate testesterone and make me fee better. Should I stick to it or stop lifting and running?
With PFS, elevating Testosterone often makes people feel worse, not better. This is likely also why many crash coming off the drug, because quitting fin brings back DHT. Also, check those veggies. Some are anti-androgenic, which can also have negative effects.
If you are waking up in the middle of the night with hot flashes and/or anxious / jolty feelings then its because your cortisol is too low and you are running strictly on adrenaline. Pop 10mg of hydrocortisone and it will help.
A week into running, my body adjusted I guess, I was able to sleep again, about for a week I had good 8 hours of sleep.
But then I upped my weight training at gym, and this week I am unable to sleep again. But funny thing is even if i wake up after 3 hours of sleep, I don’t feel tired afterwards.
I’m just gonna stick to it, see how my body responds, see if my sleeping pattern and time improves within a month or so. Surely I can’t be doing anything bad by working out. As for diet, having lots of skimmed milk, vegetables, fruits and meat. Not avoiding anything specific and not taking any supplements.
Why skimmed milk? Saturated fat is kinda good for you along with cholesterol, if you wanna pump up that endocrine production of yours.
Also, perhaps the weight training is tacking a toll of you because of your taxed adrenals - maybe it’s not necessarilly the androgen receptors. You seem to do well with cardio, so try to do HITT.
If I were you I would also look into the Wim Hoff method.
