I think I have Sjogrens syndrome. It has not been proven yet but unfortunately I'm quite sure I have it. I have plenty of symptoms including dry burning eyes (especelly in the mornings) and dry mouth (also worse in the morning and during night). My skin is also very dry. Problems/pain in prostate, stomach and bladder. Pain under my feet and a little in my hands. Much more symptoms... The thing is that I used dutasterid to prevent hairloss now and then for a few years before this started and I think it is likely what caused my illness. :( Anyone having the same problem? Appologise for spelling errors and bad english, it's not my main language.
Hi. New member here. I was taking saw palmetto to prevent some slight hair loss. At the time that was my biggest concern. I wish it still was. I took it for sbout 6 months powrder form and only took one a day as opposed to the recommended 2 a day. It was the powder form 320 mg i believe. Everything was going great untuil i had a one night stsnd with some chick i met at the bar and could nkt get it up the next morning. Now... i was hung over and she was nit ghat cute but for some reason i thought i might want to look at the supps im taking. That was the morning everything changed from that time on i have been terrifed that i have pfs. Post finasteride syndrome. Ever since then. So i quit the product and i had some lower back pain for the next few days i would think from the hormonal change i was going through. I never had any ed issues and my labido did drop a little bit but if you fast forwar 4 months to now. I am depressed and have anxiaty bad. Quality of life is shit at this point. No motivation to even get out of bed. My worry still is.....is this perminant? Is this post finasteride syndrome? Has anyone else just developed anxiaty and depression from this stuff? I see some light in trying to convince myself that because i never had any ed or sexual issues that its not pfs. I dont know. I just feel helpless and that sucks. Any advise is welcome.
