The swollen glands and palpitations are adverse effects of the testosterone.

You may need to stop it.

Would it stop after my body gets use to it?Is there another solution for low T?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Still waiting..

Yes this can gradually be better tolerated.

Though there is tiny chance of it worsening too.

Eurycoma longifolia (Tongkat Ali; TA) is natural alternative and has been shown to restore serum testosterone levels, and has following benefits;

1) significantly improving sexual health.

2) significant positive effects on bone health and physical condition.

3) lowers blood pressure.

4) decrease blood sugar.

5) prevents prostate cancer.

6) no significant side effects.

7) thus safe.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
