      I had to go to ER last Sat because of a open sore bacterial infection on my ankle, I am a diabetic so Dr said I need to be treated that night to avoid getting gang green.

      They gave me Bactrim-DS 800 160mg. Well I took one the first Sat night, T had been blasting for 4 day's. The next day T was still high, took 2 more on Sunday, T still high. Then on Monday my ear has been quiet as a mouse, it is still very low, the level I could live with easily, been like this now for 6 days. I have had cycles of T before where I can go 5-7 days of low T. Anyway I checked and Bactrim is for bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections, ear infections, enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine) I have had T for three years now. My ankle is better but not healed up. I will go see my GP Monday. I just thought it was interesting that they use it to treat ear infections due to bacteria, and after taking it for two days my Low T is making me feel like I used to feel 3 years ago. Sure would be nice if a bacterial infection is/was my problem all along.

      I really doubt it though, it's to far fetched to even think that could be the problem. I can't see how someone could have a bacterial infection that long. Anyway at least I know it is one antibiotic I can take if needed, I finish them up tomorrow.

      That's great, hope your tinnitus stays low for good. Maybe you have accidentally found something that may help some of us, tinnitus is the strangest thing......

      Hi ML, that would sure nice, I actually doubt it, but if I can go 4 more day at this level, that would be the longest (10 days in a row) I have ever gone with low/mild T. Maybe once a month I go 4-or 5 days in a row mild then it back to the jet engine for 8-10 days in a row, then a few low days, then back up again. Thank you for the good wishes....

      Hi Mario, it was at least a week. If you need to take Bactrim, what are you going to do you just have to take them. You may not have any change in you're T level.

      Interesting, about how much sugar causes a spike, like a candy bar?
