    HGH and nerve regeneration?

    I am seeing a rheumatologist later today and am looking for evidence ie written scientific reports on HGHs ability to promote nerve regeneration.
    I have extreme pain in my right lattisimus that cramps to the point of my side dropping and twisting on its own. I'm hoping to get a diagnosis today but when on testosterone the pain eased off but I'm wondering if anyone has links to scientific reports of this???
    Thanks

    PRP and SCT have more evidence of assisting nerve damage.

    Step one would be to get adequate testing to validate that it's actually nerve damage. Pain is very subjective and self reporting is vastly inaccurate. Simple example is when people sprain or fracture a bone they always default to assuming it's broken bone.

    If it's not nerve then BPC157 or TB500 may be the route to take.

    HGH studies can be found on NIH or NLM. It's not someone else's responsibility to do the homework for you for your health.

    I appreciate what your saying but I'm fully aware it's my body my responsibility....
    I'll see what the rheumatology department say today and I'll go from there!
    Thanks for the information!

    There's a few studies out there on rats and one or two on humans that focused on peripheral nerve damage GH therapy.

    Tb500 and BPC157 did nothing for damage from my nerve entrapment, although it did help with shoulder problems and I plan to use it again in the future.

    Just be aware that nerves regenerate very slowly....about 1 mm/day. Have you had a myelogram or NCV study done?

    Why were you referred to a rheumatologist instead of a neurologist? Are they ruling out issues other than nerve damage?

    One more thing you may want to consider is you may have sticky tissue and the muscles are not sliding properly. Stretching, deep tissue massage, foam rolling, etc. may help you if that's the issue.

    Please post up when you get a diagnosis of your problem; it's helps everyone when we share our experiences.

    Edit: Also, there's nothing wrong at all with asking if anyone has studies or reference material to share. The whole reason for the forum is the sharing and discussion of relevant information.

    Also, Simm, I'm seeing a musculoskeletal therapist and am running GH. It's a bit early to be sure, but I am making a tad more progress than before the GH.

    It sucks when your brain dials the phone number for your arm, but your arm doesn't answer. When I started, I literally couldn't curl 5#...total pisser.

    Almostgone.

    Thanks for the reply. Truly appreciate it and everyone else's opinions!
    I was told to have bloods run on Tuesday and a chest x-ray same-day. Bloods came back following day and then I received a letter telling me I need a whole body bone scan lasting 5hrs. Injection of nuclear radiation and scans 3-5hrs later. I'm having the scan next Thursday but know nothing regothe bloods or x-ray.
    I'll post up when it's all back!
    Thanks again bro and I hope you get sorted. It's a pure shitter when you're injured...
