For guys on high Test E did you ever experience heavier breathing while on it like let’s say 2k a week?
I’m having difficulty breathing, seems heavier and sometimes my lungs can’t catch full breath. Comes to the point when I try to catch more and more air I hyperventilate and start feeling dizzy.
I was at dr, yesterday and he checked everything and ended up I have very severe allergies and little stress. Due to bad allergies my air way is restricted.
I don’t have problem while doing cardio, don’t have chest pain or anything like that. Water retention 0. Blood pressure 118/75.
Question is, could this also be related to high dose of Test E? (4th week on it) Maybe oils and or frequent injections cause this?

Got prescribed steroid nose spray and high Allegra pills.

never had that problem at all, I just run into ED issues starting at 2g. Good thinking going to the doctor, are the injection sites red/painful? If so that indicates a histamine reaction, perhaps you are allergic to either the carrier or the solvent?

Yeah but I usually get it on tren. I'm thinking the high dose is probably just increasing anxiety.

Injections are smooth and not painfull at all. I used same T before and no issues.
Meds will take up to a week to start working so i will see after a week if it gets beter.
Just sucks.

Sounds like straight up anxiety/panic

I had breathing problems when I went from 1 shot of test e a week to 2 shots of test e a week. it always felt like something was in my lungs preventing me from taking a deep breath. I went to the doctor and he gave me a breathing test and then prescribed antibiotics. they didn't help much, but going off the test e helped me.

Testosterone is contraindicated for patients with sleep apnea.

Now does this correlate with daytime breathing difficulties? Maybe,I have asked one pulmonologist who shares an office with the endo I see and he thinks it is possible.But as he stated there isn't much literature on the subject.Also when patients stop heavy androgen use breathing doesn't appear to be so labored he stated.

You need to lower the doze, is not good for your immune system, is not healthy to take that much test, (belive me).

Check this out:

High doses of anabolic steroids reduce the amounts of immune
globulin A, G, and M in the blood.(1-4)
These proteins, known medically as IgA, IgG, and IgM, are part of
the body's humoral immune system. These antibodies that circulate
in the bloodstream and attack invading bacteria. Having fewer of
them may make a person more likely to develop a serious infection.

By contrast, anabolic steroids increase the activity of the
natural killer cells.(3,4) Another of the body's
defenses against infection, natural killer cells are specialized
white blood cells that attack specific viruses and bacteria and
help to prevent tumor formation.(8) Increased natural
killer cell activity could be helpful to the body.(4)
However, overactive natural killer cells could also attack the
body's own tissues, leading to diseases that are known medically as
"autoimmune diseases."(4)

I have been having that shit for 2 years. Feels like u r breathing in air but it is not going in anywhere?? right. Then you end up opening ur mouth and its still not going in. almost like ur diaphragm is paralyzed for few seconds. then finally it goes in.
It started for me on high dose test too. Had numerous tests done but cant find anything..

let me know if u figure it out. its super annoying

That's how I felt when I had cardiomyopathy and an ejection fraction of about 35%. I couldnt mow my 1/2 acre lot without taking about 4 breaks during the summer. the problem was discovered with an echocardiogram.

Chances are youre ok, but it could be sometihng heart related. What is your resting heart rate at, say when youre lying in bed when you first wake up in the morning? When mine was bad I would wake up and my heart rate was like 115 bpm.

I agree don't take a chance. Could be nothing or something that will change your life forever. No need to go that high unless you are Jay Cutler. JMO

Yeah, most of us have had that experience with tren. I once did a cycle with 500mg deca and 500 mg EQ per week along with 1g of test and I got it bad. Thats when I got diagnosed with the cardiomyopathy.

Addition after ruling out the obvious causes like heart failure, asthma, etc.

do u have any of these??

1.) sinus congestion/ post nasal drip

2.) heart burn

3.) did u take cialis in the last few days?

4.) anxiety stress?

If you go to a pulmonolgist and have ur pulmonary function tests done make sure you ask them to measure ur respiratory muscle strength. pi max and pe max. I am willing to bet ur pi max is severely low.

Do you feel like your chest is too big? i remeber u mentioning that u started out at 150 and are now 250. u think that u have so much mass on ur chest that ur ribcage cant handle expanding? I have honestly thought off getting surgery and removing my pectoralis muscles lol Thats how annoyed i am.

Like tenny said though sometimes the breath goes in if you do a semi yawning breath. kinda open ur mouth and breath half through ur nose half through ur mouth..


One last thing, have u ever been tested for sleep apnea? Does ur wife ./gf tell u u snore a lot? Do u have a deviated septum or any nasal abnormalities?

I have to say that I felt much worse when I was up around 265 lbs. Once I leaned down to 235 I felt much better. During the weight loss my BP stayed the same.
