I wouldn't be so quick to make assumptions nor would I be quick to self-treat with supplements - especially if you have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> and could possibly be on other medications. With any treatment it's usually a balance of weighing the benefits against the consequences - and if it's worth it is up to you.
There are several reasons for your erectile issues, including the hypothyroidism(which contrbutes quite a bit), possible side effects from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> agents, side effects of having high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> in the first place, and even the possibility of a low Testosterone(which should be checked). Speak with your doctor about increasing your thyroid dose, possible side effects of your Blood Pressure agents and getting your Blood Pressure down, and also testing your Testosterone levels.
I am still waiting for reverse T3 and bio-available <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> - but bio-available <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> will be bad no doubt. Thank you to all who took the time to read this !
The Cardiologist find nothing wrong with my heart and think that all my symptoms are linked to my anxiety level (low pulse rate, dizziness and high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>, pins and needles and numbness sensations). Is it normal to have high Blood Pressure with low pulse rate. Also, is it normal to feel like I have no energy all the time, even if I sleep 7 hours by night and do a nap at daytime? I always feel my heart beat in my chest now, I never was like that before and never felt it.
High Testosterone, Low Libido, difficult, weak erections For the past 2-3 months, I have been experiencing: 1. VERY low libido 2. difficulties obtaining and maintaining an erection, 3. mild depression 4. sleeping problems (but have always had sleep issues) 5. emotional -- more affected by sadness on tv shows to the point of tears (!) 6. more joint/muscle pain than before 7.
Testosterone effects receptors in your kidneys which make your body produce more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span>. More <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> causes a rise in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>, thus making your heart work harder all the time. Many people end up on beta-blockers to control Blood Pressure as a result. Also, cardiac muscle is not immune to the effects of steroids and Can reportedly "bulk up" with long-time use of exogenous Testosterone in excess of what your body would produce.
I am 28 years old. I went to the doctor a few months ago and got my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> under control, ruled out any medications I was taking by stopping them and restarting with no effects. The Blood Pressure medication in particular does not interfere with this function, it is exactly the same or better than it was without it. I got my Testosterone level checked, and they didn't know exactly what they were doing because they only checked the total, and it was 443.
So I went to my Endo recently and I was explaining a few symptoms to him (fatigue, high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>, general weakness and feeling crappy), and he decided to test a few hormones. My Testosterone Serum was 251 ng/dL, and the range listed is 348-1197. There's nothing wrong with my testicles so he's saying it's Hypogonadotrophic Hypogonadism, which is just a fancy way of saying something besides your testes is causing the low Testosterone.
grate to the size of a large egg put in cup with lemon and micro wave30 secs then add your tea, Green or Black, tastes great,( on pegym they call this erection tea ) Green tea is also a help with ED, Green tea, Cayenne and garlic are all known herbs for cleaning the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> and given heat down below they all help open the veins up, and to help get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> into the penis, and believe me you will fill this some time later, I also have some herb Tribulus which I brew with green tea, and drink with gin
I don't think sex of any sort increases Blood "volume." It may redirect Blood flow and even Raise Blood Pressure momentarily but volume is something else. And I would never recommend "cutting" to reduce Blood volume. Some people with high iron levels have to donate Blood occasionally but that's something different.
I have had very high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> 220/95 and higher and ended up in the ER every week for 6 months. I went through many tests for a year and was on 5 Blood Pressure meds that did not work until the Dr. put me on Lexapro for the last year or so. My Blood Pressure is under control 130/80 and it helps me with my stressful job BUT I have put on 20lbs....is there another alternative for stress and my high spiking Blood Pressure????
This all started about 2 years ago when I wasn't feeling well and went to the Doctor and he took my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> and it was 165/100 He was very concerned and had me take my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> at home. The Ranges were still very high 145/95-165/110. I'm 27 Years old so he was very concerned. I started to have recurring symptoms: Flushed Face, Headache, Anxiety, Hands Shaking, Back is hot to touch, Chills, Elevated Temp.
There does not seem to be many side effects to most herbs, I did get some high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> from Viagra, but now since being on mostly herbs I feel and get some real good erections, and the morning woods are good, I even get woken in the night with some real boners and never had that before.

My wife is an energizer bunny and without drugs has huge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> issues, and her cocktail that works is Triamterene and Trazodone. I think this post is interesting as we all bring different heart conditions to this post, and this shows the importance of good meds, good doctor care and regular Blood tests. That being said, Ed34, thanks to London for posting the Olympics, not everyone thinks that you folks underprepared. It looks like you Brits did a great job, THANKS!

No wonder your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> was high. Your really should try to cut back on those and drink a lot more water during the day.
The problem with taking Testosterone Ciponate at this level is the water retention and bloating. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> has always run a little hi and so I am now on Blood Pressure medicine with a diuretic to loose the water weight. I admit I need to drop some weight and have changed my diet dramatically and Can see my new muscle is burning off the fat. I plan on maintaining my current intake of Test and increasing my cardio and reducing my sodium to get my Blood Pressure down.
Having an abnormal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> pattern, such as high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> in the morning, Can mean that you have a health problem. Potential problems include: ■Poorly controlled high Blood Pressure ■Sleep apnea ■Tumors of the adrenal gland ■Kidney disease Obstructive sleep apnea: one hypoxic (decrease of oxygen level in the Blood/decreased oxygen to heart cells) night increases daytime Blood Pressure.
Cardiologist doesnt know as he thinks its from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span>, working out and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> issue. Which all makes sense. So I go from super depressed obese guy to looking fit and muscular (a bit too much for my liking) and also having a meatball for a heart. My goal was to not get diabetes when I started working out hard but now worried about sudden cardiac death from the hypertrophy.
Muscle twitching (legs, feet fingers) 6. Elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>. 25+ years of around 105/65. Consistently 125/75 now. 7. Sinuses regularly clogged 8. Weight gain (abdomen area) 9. Joint pain (back, knees, thumbs) 10. Muscle twitching 11. Tinnitis I have just had some Blood tests at the University of Penn Endocrinology and here are the results (abnormal first). Tests were done at 8am: 1. TSH: 4.85 mlu/ml H (range .4 - 4.5). This has be up (4.0 - 6.5) for about 1 1/2 years 2. FSH: 8.
But the doctor said his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> was low and wants to put him to use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span> pellets. I was confused after I left and called the office back, the nurse said that even though his Testosterone levels were normal that a study was done and that they really like the levels to be at 400 for a man his age. My husband is 71 years old and he would be fine if we could just kiss and hold hands and take trips together and never have sex again, but I find the rejection to be too painful.
Ten days later at cardiologist I showed a marked elevation in Blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>. I t jumped from 130 over something to 195 over96. High <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span> is listed as a 1% risk for testim, but the cardiologist doesnt think there is a connection. My question is coule testim cause this kind of jump in less than two weeks? If not what could?
Apart from that, it Can be due to medical conditions like diabetes, high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pressure</span>, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Testosterone</span>, depression, spinal and neurologic causes. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a urologist and get it evaluated. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

As you know my Testosterone was beat up by Therapy dropping to 200. I am not aware of where it was before Therapy or during. I took Androgel and after a couple of months it went up to 300 with free Testosterone at 12.4. I was told that the free range is 7.2 to 24 so your 48 is above normal according to my doc. When I started the Andogel, I felt better immediately - hot flashes stopped - but after a couple of months noticed that I was feeling fatigued and "out of sorts.
