    Need help - breathing gets heavy

    I am 6 weeks into my 2nd cycle, Test/Deca, and I have gained 10 lbs so far. Last several days, I have noticed that I am easily out of breath, just walking a few blocks, and taking deep breath frequently. Also I can feel tightness in my shins when I walk several blocks.

    Questions I have,
    Will this go away soon once my body adapt to the new weight?
    Should I start doing some cardio?
    I have scheduled for blood test (female hormone panel and lipid panel) on Wednesday. Is there test results indicate why I am out breath easily?
    Should I go see my doctor?

    Thanks guys.

    Normally an increase in RBC which deca does should improve cardio . I do believe if RBC goes too high though it can cause the opposite. Have RBC and hematocrit checked .

    Today I got the test results. Should I be concerned with the results that are 'High'? Or this is normal while on Test/Deca cycle?
    What is surprising to me is that only the following were 'High' when I got the test results while on Test Cyp cycle last year.

    • Testosterone Serum
    • LDL Cholesterol
    • Estradiol


    I would appreciated if any vets can chime in.

    Thanks,

    Usually BP, RBC, too much gains too quick, and/or bloat is what does it for me. RbC and gains in your case do not seem out of whack. Maybe BP or you are holding too much water. Test seem as expected, though I'm surprised rbc is so normal. Get your cholesterol improved. Red yeast rice, cardio, and lots of fiber

    Are you running orals as well? It's not crazy high, but I see your liver enzymes are up.

    That'll do it. If it were me, I'd drop down to a TRT dose of 150-200mgs of test only, get your health back up, donate some blood as mentioned, and re-test in another month or so. Consume more water, up the omega's and fiber also said above. And DEFINATELY add in some cardio.
