ED with Tachycardia and low Testosterone
Jax26 posted:
Any help would be great. I'm 37 and relatively in shape. Last year I was diagnosed with low Testosterone. I do weekly injections of 1 ml. When I started doing the injections, I began having issues with ED. My doctor says that it's psychological and the Testosterone would treat something like that but I'm 100% sure that it's not in my head. I am completely into it but there is nothing there. Complicating the matter is that I have a resting heart rate around 105. My Cardiologist did an echo and the left two chambers are slightly enlarged (he said that since I'm a 6'2'' with a big chest it's not as bad as if I was smaller) it was like just barely over the top for normal. In the last year, I've started having more shortness of breath episodes than I ever have before though. I don't know if the ED and the heart thing are related or what is going on. I don't usually get nocturnal erections but can achieve with Viagra after a couple of hours.

Just as an update too - I have never smoked in life, don't do drugs, don't drink and eat pretty healthily. My Cardiologist put me on high blood pressure pills but I don't take them b/c my blood pressure is always fine except when I'm in the office - whenever I'm out and about walking around a grocery store, it's like 105/75 with a pulse rate around 120. I had my Estrogen checked and it was OK
