    Introduction: What am I going through? PSF?

    Hi everyone, found this forum and appreciate all the information here. However I guess my case is a little different as there are other factors than just finasteride. I will set up a timeline for the sake of illustration.

    I am 25 years old from northern europe.

    13th may: starting finasteride 0,5mg

    16th may: aching in testicles but goes away some days later

    26th may: smoking weed (not a reguler smoker), experiencing a bad trip with several panic attacks

    27th may: after sleeping, i am alright from the bad trip however experiencing derealization throughout the day

    28th may: i am my old self, having fun and preparing for exams. the weed experience was just a fun story to tell now.

    8th june: noticing my right breast to have formed tissue, it seems bigger than my left breast. QUITTING FINASTERIDE.

    14th june: i have had a really good day, no sides from anything finasteride related. during the evening, i get this heavy derealization feeling again and having a panic attack.

    14th june - till now:
    My life changed after that last panic attack. I have had:

    ☻constant anxiety
    ☻unreasonable fear for everything
    ☻insomnia
    ☻depression
    ☻nasty thoughts about giving up
    ☻aching in my balls
    ☻having derealization (has lessened pretty much)
    ☻low libido
    ☻impotence
    ☻fatigue
    ☻dreaming a lot
    ☻some days getting 7 hours sleep, other days 1 hour
    ☻hot flashes (the first to weeks only)
    ☻brain fog
    ☻constant elevated heart rate
    ☻detached from reality
    ☻is this a dream?

    As to my blood results, my pre fin T level was 17nmol (8-28), it had decreased to 5nmol after my first crash. A week later it had become 20nmol!

    UPDATE EDIT: my thyroid numbers are within normal range now.

    What is very surprising here is my thyroid function. I suddenly became hyperthyroid! I cannot see the connection between PFS and hyperthyroidisim. This condition MIGHT cause many of my symptoms, I am having a meeting with an endocrinologist tomorrow.

    I am currently on magnesium, omega 3 fish oil, GABA and multi vitamins. Eating lots of kefir. Eating lots of proteins, low carb and drinking only water.

    Due to my fatigue and ball aches, I cannot really work out.

    Have I messed with my brain completely due to bad trip + PFS?

    Any input is highly appreciated.

    Just an update

    Got blood test results in for Vitamin D and Thyroid function

    My thyroid values are now within ranger (TSH still low), and I have Vitamin D defficieny, even though I have been sunbathing almost everyday since April. Makes no sense.

    Absolutely don't take any hormones. Take it slow, rest, fast if you can and read the protocol and this forum as much as possible before doing anything rash.

    Hey man, just wanted to point you in the right direction. Best post this over at the PFS subsection of the forum: Post Finasteride Syndrome

    You can find the protocol here: Total Male Optimization

    You'll be fine my friend.
