What can I mega dose to sort that out?
The opposite: a vasodilator.

If you normally have visible vascularity and a stimulant makes your veins hide (like me) a stronger dose of a vasodilator (e.g. I do 40mg Cialis vs 20mg if a stim wasn't in me) will fix ya up!

Another thing ive wondered about is proteinuria
How can you tell if bubbles in urine are proteinuria or not? If i drink a ton of water bubbles go away immediately but usually they pop after a few seconds but some dont really go away. Did get urine test a few months ago and it was fine

OK, DOMS. Used to be as a natty I would get DOMS on the third day after some new exercise, like clock work. Now on TRT (read blast and cruise) I get DOMS on the same or next day, and they are 10X worse. Why?

This is actually close to home for me. I had foamy urine and still have it to a degree.

My urine became super foamy, and I eventually pissed blood last year. The cause was rhabdomyolysis. It cleared up with hardcore hydration therapy.

As long as your results show everything is fine, and you feel fine, you'll be okay.

Remember, AAS increases protein retention and catabolism (Tren is the only one that actually decreases protein catabolism, though), so it's possible to have more bubbles.

yes that all makes sense, i do take in alot more protein than the average person but this just gets me paranoid, some things is read says its normal others say if theres any bubbles any reason youre screwed that kidneys shouldnt leak protein no matter what. i do feel fine actually tried to buy urine test strips but they arent for sale anywhere for some reason so have to wait for them to come in the mail from ebay.

i did have a bad urine test years ago and i wasnt even lifting crazy was going to planet fitness just taking creatine and protein, test had elevated urobiligen and protein so that really scared me, stopped everything and retested 2 weeks later and was fine. i posted about this here a while ago but i dont want to screw myself by being on these supps and not knowing what may be causing this or if its just lifting itself. drs arent very supportive either they will just say to stop taking whatever youre taking.

Stay vigilant on BP as well as kidney tests.

Hypertension can be fatally detrimental to kidney health. Never be too prideful to use a doctor. I wouldn't admit AAS use, of course.

Just stay vigilant and do regular check-ups. You'll be fine and dandy it sounds like.

Studies show B2 bradykinin receptor–nerve growth factor and COX-2-glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor produced by muscle fibers/satellite cells play crucial roles in DOMS.

Another theory is it's ultrastructural damage to muscle cells with a local inflammatory response.

It's exact cause and mechanism remains inknown, but the former stated, plus your increased age, makes both likely causes.

Anecdotally, I always have never experienced DOMS (always sore the next day) but my wife recieves DOMS. It's clearly based on genetics.

I had to lookup ultrastructural. I guess they would need to do studies with with biopsies viewed under an electron microscope to prove that theory. Sounds a lot more painful than DOMS : )

Shin splints while walking?
Many people say shoes play a big role ... I find when I have greater fluid retention it is more frequent and painful.
Thoughts?

Actually got myself a jar of urine test strips on ebay to test myself, so even with bubbles no protein on the test tried a few times and after the gym and after a meal. guess theres a difference between some bubbles and soap suds foam.

The specific gravity was confusing because it came up a weird color that didnt really match any on the chart tried a few more times and it became more clear seems like its about 1.020.

Ph always came up as 5 and never changed color unsure if this is normal or not. any concerns? thanks.
