      So I ate a small lemon poppy seed muffin and boom! My T skyrocketed an hour later! :eek:
      Never happens when I eat my usual blueberry muffins. Must be the opium alkaloids or something...

      Anyone else have this happen to them?

      It's all relative isn't it? I feel unlucky compared to people I know who made it to their 80s with no major health problems, and yet very lucky compared to my good friend who died of cancer at 33.

      I think you'd have to repeat this several times with the same results to be sure it was the muffin, given how unpredictable T is. Even if it is the muffins, I'd be more suspicious of coloring agents and various other things -- the amount of opioid alkaloids in a single muffin seems unlikely to be too much higher than the amount of morphine which is biosynthesized in the body through normal homeostasis. Yes, you can concentrate enough opium from poppy seeds to get an effect, but the amount of seeds required would make many, many batches of muffins.

      In any case, don't worry about it :) You haven't done yourself any harm.
