To begin with, I will say that I have a medical background and have myself experienced a so-called "knockout" of the estrogen receptor, which was due to an epigenetic change due to the use of AI (called PAIS) and recovered using a similar protocol, but in favor of estradiol and if I can help at least one person, I will be extremely happy. I apologize in advance if there are any errors in the text, as I translated from my language through a translator
I will write my own report on post-finasteride syndrome and how to treat it
Guys, I won’t be able to answer everyone’s questions here, because I don’t come here often and I constantly have to use a translator, I just essentially gave you my protocol and you already decide at your discretion to use or not use. I don’t want to get into arguments with anyone, just being in your place for a certain time, I understand how you feel and sincerely sympathize with you, I hope that if it helped me, it can help you too, but for many it’s Russian roulette. I wish you all a speedy recovery P.S. i have studied all the research on finasteride and all my theories are my subjective conclusions on this syndrome and this problem, i do not pretend to be 100% right, being thousands of miles away from all of you, i am just sharing MY PERSONAL protocol, and, if this helps someone, then deep down I will be glad that I saved at least one person, I sincerely wish you good luck and a speedy recovery, stay strong no matter what, I know and understand how bad you feel. P.S. II While on TRT, I tried finasteride, it caused ED and PSSD symptoms literally after the first dose, but I didn’t have a crash, so I recovered in 3 weeks
Whats your medical background (speciality)? What medicines of those have you tried?
Whats the similar protocol? What symptoms did you have? What symptoms resolved with that protocol?
Empirism > hypothesis
Pharmacist. I reversed my estrogen insensitivity after taking an AI, a poison called aromasin, with trt and adding methylestradiol, before that I lived in the purest hell, my joints were just dead, my skin was completely dry, I seemed to have suicidal tendencies and I already I didn’t believe in anything, but I decided that if I’m ready to die, then why can’t I be ready for TRT and trying to fix everything and, fortunately, it was the right decision
Thats not a similar protocol..you only used hormones.Palmitoylethanolamide was proposed by doctor Jacobs which has a better background and also uses hormones and he hasnt find any cure.
I cured PSSD with sustanon 125mg per week with AI added (YOU NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL WITH IT, at first I used anastrozole and everything was fine, then I stopped taking blood tests, thinking that now everything is fine and switched to Aromasin and did not calculate the dosage with frequency of use, it worked for me more powerfully than anastrozole, then I started having problems). At the moment, after all my tragic experiences and acquired mistakes, I have finally found peace and 100mg of the cyp test is enough for me to consistently feel good.
You have medical background and you ended up with a muscoeskeletic syndrome because you thought everything was okay using AI (dude AI are not toys).. Seems that you at first had "mild" PSSD and you ended having PSSD + Aromatase Inhibitor-Associated Musculoskeletal Syndrome. Now you:re asymptomatic because you:re using drugs(hormones). Then you open a thread saying that you found a cure for pfs with a similar protocol (i dont see only hormones in your pfs cure). At least you could have tried PEA and tell us if It has side effects instead of proposing supplements that you have not tried (its not legit to say that you used a similar protocol).
Think as you wish. No, I have not used PEA, but I have used pregnenolone with etifoxine with success. Trt is my own choice, but for clarification without all these manipulations and errors, it simply does not work. What you describe is not a musculoskeletal syndrome, it is unlikely that I could do anything from a musculoskeletal syndrome and slept 24/7 for 4 months being on the verge of suicide. Here is a link where people had a similar "estro-crash" https://www.excelmale.com/forum/threads/low-e2-symptoms-didnt-go-away-after-crash.8616/>
