Common Questions and Answers about Androgel and testicular pain


Avatar n tn 62% Androgel is not likely a full daily replacement amount for you. Using the Androgel will cause your natural T to diminish. Since total T is the sum of exogenous and endogenous sources, you may not be getting the effect you expect.
Avatar m tn The Androgel bottle says it's supposed to be kept at 77 degree's. The room I keep my Androgel in a roo thats about50 degree's . Could this be affecting the Androgel? It doesny seem to be working for me. Started on 4 pumps and worked at first then it didnt. Now on 6 pumps and I felt a difference but now that has declined. Jusy wondering if the room temp could be harming this drug and maybe why it doesnt seem to be working for me. Thanks in advance, Sutallee.
Avatar n tn I have been on Androgel for about one year. My testosterone tested low after i complaining of fatigue with my primary dr and he prescribed this. i felt much better for a few weeks but then i began to feel terrible. It appears to have exacerbated my sleep apnea terribly, and moods are up and down. I have been slowly trying to wean from it but I wonder if i will ever get back to producing T normally.
Avatar m tn The Androgel is out of my system, so is the pain. Interesting.

Avatar f tn I started using Androgel because of depression, hair loss, shaving every 3 days (which is good!), atrophying of all muscles and my bone density dropped. I started Androgel 1.62% and everything improved greatly Good luck and do this only with doctors approval.
Avatar m tn My question is, shortly after I began Testosterone Replacement Therapy and am using Androgel daily. Is this an issue that I should be concerned with in regards to the CSCR? Or is it really corticosteriods that are a problem? This a concern to me since I have noticed a significant improvment in my overall general well being since using Androgel.
694895 tn?1263662430 The only thing I can recommend is contacting the company that makes the Androgel and ask if they can give it to you at a reduced rate since you have no insurance. Your Dr may have to fill out a little bit of paper work for the company. Take care.

1139187 tn?1355706647 Can anyone tell me if they have had luck with androgel pumps? My free level is in range but my t level is 255 range 250 to 1200.

Avatar f tn ) He has even gone to a therapist for counseling for anxiety. I recently googled Androgel and anxiety and did come across quite a few people who have had cases of anxiety with Androgel. Could this be the cause? We think possibly. We recently stopped the pristyq (about 2 weeks ago) and just went to the endocronologist today. First time seeing a specialist. She had him stop the Androgel, although she has not heard of it causing anxiety. She is having him do blood work in 2 weeks.

Avatar m tn I lead a fairly active lifestyle playing tennis for my college. I am approximately 5’10” and 185 pounds. Summed up, I suffer from borderline hypothyroidism and hypogonadism. Genetics: My father suffers from hypothyroidism, but there is no noted hypogonadism.

They have been life-altering.

Avatar m tn Hello, Gynecomastia is one of the presenting features in testicular cancer but is not the sole symptom of testicular cancer. Testicular pain can also be due to injury, infection (Epididymitis or Orchitis) or inflammation, testicular torsion( most common in young men), excessive bicycle riding, hernia,varicocele or kidney or ureteric stones. Lab investigations like complete blood examination, urine examination, ultrasound lower abdomen and sometimes a urethral swab will help in diagnosis.
650419 tn?1281359937 I have low testosterone from being on a pain pump implant for almost 7 years and I'm currently on Androgel but the side effect is that it keeps me up all night long like insomnia. I have been living this way for 4 months. I can't go to sleep until 4 or 5 am every morning. If I were to switch to the shots or the pellets would that rid me of the current side effects that I'm suffering from?
Avatar n tn If the pain worsens then pls consult a urologist and get the other causes of testicular pain like epididymitis,orchitis,testicular torsion or any tumors of the testicles ruled out. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Varicoceles and spermatoceles and to some extent hydroceles also cause pain testicular pain when you strain as in lifting weight. Retractile testis, testicular cancer or any infection of testis, epidiymis etc too can cause this pain. Hope this helps. Do consult an urologist. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Thank you for your response. What are voiding urine and defecation? My pain was originating at my testicular cyst radiating from there to my abdomen and lower back. My family practice doctor examined my testicles me and I also got an ultrasound. The ultrasound indicated the absence of cancer. My doctor has prescribed antibiotics suspecting an infection. I am about 5-11 and 240#s and I am trying to lose weight. I suspect I might have hurt myself at the gym.
