if you put more faith in this community than in a doctor then I'm sorry to say but you're an idiot.

We are not medical doctors, we are not formally educated in this.... especially for really unusual and obscure symptoms you post.

We might be able to tell you how to use a drug, but it's a leap of faith to expect that we can solve your medical issues.

Go see a doctor.
Yeah I am pretty retarted but honestly the doctors are clueless when it comes to basic shit it blows my mind when they dish out advice that's why It's so hard to trust them with something serious if they fail at simple shit lol. But I hear you man I'll try one last time with a doctor. I still think you guys are better though I'll hold strong to that but I guess I might as well try once

you're going to have to see a doctor at some point no matter what. Might as well do it now and just ask about the specific tests you're interested in.
What type of doctor should I see for it? Would it be a cardiovascular doctor?/cardiologist?

I'd say just see your primary and ask for a referral to a specialist based on blood work. PCP are there to handle general needs, as well as to help guide you to the correct specialist if necessary.

dunning-kreuger is a thing. Trust me, doctors know better and know more... even if you don't like what they have to tell you.

Getting second and third opinions is also completely within your rights as a patient. You don't have to limit yourself to what any single doctor has to say.

I go to Dr.s for medical advice. They can only give the best opinion from what i tell them and of the test results they get. I have had Dr.s make the wrong diagnosis on occasion. But biology is not an exact science. Dr.s give advice i make decisions. I vett my Dr.s. To get the best for me. If they don't have a sprots medicine background i usually pass on them for one. thing. When i go to orthopedic surgeons, if the pro athletes are not some of their clients i tend to pass on them. But i usually have a good idea what the problem is before i go and guide the Dr. to the most likely solution for me.

I am having issues during exercise. My lips turn purple. I feel light headed and like I'm gonna pass out. Been happening since I was like 19. Mostly during heavy lifts where I'm going hard as shit.

It is a problem because it sometimes forces me to end the set before my muscles are fully pushed to failure. And yes I've even got obsessed with running while I was cutting weight and saw no improvement. It's something cardio related or heart related but going hard with cardio consistently hasn't helped.
You should definitely seek medical advice outside of a forum if you are having these types of symptoms/feelings. Primary care physician, PA or NP should be able to get the ball rolling for you and while you may not like docs this is something that you're not going to figure out on your own. Stubbornness can lead to very poor outcomes.

I wasn't gonna touch this one, but hear this and take it seriously. Read the post above this one.

You are asking all these questions about BP monitoring because you're planning on "jumping into" AAS. Yet you have something going on that could very well be cardiac, pulmonary, or vascular related that is long standing and you haven't been to a doctor. If you have 2 working brain cells you won't even think about AAS until you get this checked out. Not trying to harsh, just honest and direct. It's one thing not to know you have an umderlying condition may seriously affect you when coupled with anabolics, but knowing you have something going on and not getting the professional help to determine what is up exactly is called willful ignorance.

As stated above, the guys on this board aren't doctors, and you would be a fool to think that you will get better medical advice, etc... here than from the professional who deals with it.

Stop being "scared" and find out what the fk us going on. Fear is an emotion and it's 100 fkng percent in your head. It's imaginary, what might happen. Danger is real, and if you have an underlying cardiovascular condition using AAS could be dangerous. Know the difference between fear and danger and handle your shit brother. Good luck and I sincerely hope the best for you.
