    Heart pumping harder than usual?

    I began trt about 17 days ago, pellets not shots.
    After a week, I noticed that my heart rate was faster than usual, and at night it seemed to pump really hard, made it hard to fall asleep.

    At the gym, my bpm was around 170 when it usually is around 150.

    I also felt lethargic at night.

    I gave blood, and the symptoms went away, but now a week later they seem to be starting again.

    What do I do, take water pills? Or could it be high E?

    Are you on Adex or anything else?
    How old are you?
    Medical history?
    Resting HR and BP?
    You should probably just ask whatever doc put you on HRT.

    Age 40, no anti-E just yet.

    My blood pressure was always around 115 over 65, pretty good.
    When I gave blood, my bp was normal yet, like 118 over 68. But at night it seems to sky rocket. Or when at the gym, my heart really pumps. I can see the veins in my neck pulsing, lol.

    That's not possible, since veins don't pulsate (they have a smooth, weak flow). That is reserved for arteries, and I doubt you can see your carotid artery pulsating.
    You may just need to get used to the higher testosterone levels and allow your cardiovascular system to adapt through regular cardio training. So long as your BP and heart rhythm are fine, there shouldn't be an issue.

    Serious, vein, artery, whatever it was, it was right near my collar bone. I'll take it easy on the cardio until I hear back from the doc.

    I agree with Bonaparte regarding give your body time to get used to TRT. this happened to me when I started TRT, still there but I don't even think about it. it sucks because once you notice your heartbeat it'll never go away. as long as your BP is good you should be fine.

    Try drinking more water, I know it sounds way too simple, but it has worked wonders for me. Shoot for a gallon a day if your active.
