Hey guys my first post so please reply with something!

I have been an active guys for ages, even in high school and my teen but i always had puffy nipples only on the nipple area and some going to the side of the pec. I started to workout late 2008 to June 2009 one routine eating well and looked pretty good. This was the time I felt frustrated but the nipples.

I went to America and on my return felt really tired and tingly (pins and needles) feeling in my hands and feet but I wouldn't go away like normal. SO i got a blood test done and got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid). I became very tired and gained weight from 12st to 14.5st in 2 months so was hard to loose it again.

So I'm back to 12 and wondering what these nipple are about, i went to the doctors and 2 different GPs told me that it is defiantly NOT gynecomastia. I am reading all these forums and i hear these guys who have a simple problem like me, slim, was or are lean, active and not contact with marijuana all their life. I was told that theres nothing i would be able to do about it apart from maybe cardio.

I read somewhere that i might just be water.

Can someone please not go and say that its gynecomastia cause its not and if anyone out there heard of a cure via pills or hormonal treatment please educated us with it

Thanks in advance, MMA Boy

  • it's the high prolactin causing puffy nipples and weight gain..check your t3/rt3 and consider taking some t3 meds
