Androgel

I am  49 year old male, six weeks ago I started using Androgel after over a year of testing. The second week after starting I have had muscle weekness. I also must have had arthritis in my neck, back and hips that has become inflamed.  I am having several other back pains that we are having a hard time tracking down.  Is there any information out there that might address this. My endo believes that the product should help, but the time frame fits.  I am thinking about stopping the use of it for seven days to see if there is any change.

I've been using the product for about three weeks now and my lower back and neck are very painful.  Similar to you.  Would like further information also by other users.

I have had several exrays and an MRI done . I have arthritus in my back and hips. I would like to know if the rise in hormone levels contributed to the increase in inflamation.  I am scheduled for another MRI in a different location. Doctor believes that I may have a herniated disc. This of course would not be assiciated with the use of Androgel but I have stopped using it for seven days now. The less things my liver has to deal with right now the better.

Thanks

The Androgel is out of my system, so is the pain.  Interesting.
