    What to do after seeing doctor?


    Long story short, I've been feeling lethargic, depressed/down, irritable and have lost a chunk of my sex drive, along with other things. My workouts suck. Everything just feels "off". So I decided to have an Endo check my testosterone levels (free, total, etc.).

    My total test is 270. The range on his test was 250-1200. He says this is "fine". I feel it is not. I feel it is low. Not even based on numbers, but because of the symptoms I am having (the numbers just back it up). I feel horrible. Helpless. It is affecting every aspect in my life. From physical (working out, sex, etc.) to emotional (depressing, loss of interest, unmotivated). I feel less and less like a man.

    So my question is, what can I do? I thought about getting a "second opinion", but what is everything is "ok" in his book too? I can't keep going around until I find someone that sees a problem. I already get up set with doctors and this just takes the cake. Any advice/help/support is greatly appreciated. I am at a loss and am so tired of feeling like this. Everything is in check. Diet is great (getting plenty of calories and my ratios are perfect). Getting plenty of rest. I don't know what to do. I'm honestly scared.

    EDIT: I'm 27 years old. I am 5'9" @ 160 lbs. I am down in weight. I have noticed a considerable loss of muscle.

    Unfortunately finding the right doctor is the hardest part and something we all need to do.

    Best bet is to find an anti-aging doctor or specialist who will understand your problem exactly. Endo's don't do **** for anyone besides people with severe hormonal problems like cushings or addisons disease.

    When looking at a persons health their are many many things involved not just hormones which could be causing your symptoms.

    Including - Hormone imbalances, nutritional/vitamin/mineral deficiencies, immune dysfunction, Gastrointesinal problems (absorbtion/digestion problems), candida overgrowth and metabolic problems.

    get a copy of your blood work and go to a doctor who advertises anti- aging and hormorne replacement. many doctors do just this and based on your blood work and syptoms it sounds like you are a candidate for trt.

    Call around your area and ask if the Doctor treats for trt. When you find one who is known to treat, take him your latest test results..

    If you are in the north eastern USA or willing to travel to get help, and have PPO insurance PM me. I know of a Dr that takes insurance.

    As of now, I live in Ohio. Getting ready to move to Texas. I'll love for an anti-aging doc. I have yet to see one around here that even mentions anti-aging. I'll check a little further. Thanks for the advice and responses.
