Hi everybody,hi matrix
Firts of all , i apologize for my english because i'm a french speaker.Im a 24 years old man suffering from libido loss and high prolactin levels.I'm living in paris.My personal research lead me on this website.I will try to make myself understood and get to the point.I need matrix help and i will explain why but first let's startwith my problem.
Back in the days till 2009, i had an amazing life and a skyhigh sexdrive like most of the men of my age.I had no health issues exept panic disorder in 2008 for personal reasons, i dont drink, i dont smoke, no steroids use and i'm lifting weight since december 2007.I always had problems for building muscles; im an ectomorph but everything changed when i tried a new diet and extreme workouts(october 2009).I was having for 3 months every 2 hours mega fats-sugar-protein shakes(gainer,colza oil,peanut butter,honey,oats and bananas)+ supplements (arginine, gaba,glutamine).In december 2009 i took fenugreek seeds extract and i was experiencing a weird feeling in my troat, then libido became extremely low.I experienced this for 3 weeks while on fenugreek then everything turned back to normal after i stopped it.It was the very firts time i felt this way ,so i thaught i was just exausted.
But the febuary 23th 2010 i had a panic attack again in the middle of the night, and i felt like something was broken in my troat.When i woke up the morning after, i felt the worst feeling in my entire life; sexual anihilation, zero libido,zero feelings, zero sperm count and no orgasm but still hard erectile function.I went to see a doctor and he gave me a blood test in march 2010.Blood test showed megaloblastic cells (folate defiency) and extremely low cholesterol (1,15) testosterone was 530.Doctor told me i was perfectly normal and didn't event notice i had low cholesterol and folate or b12 defiency.
I wasn't aware on medecine like i do now so i was waiting for my libido to come back desperately.Then an other doctor gave me prolactin test in april 2010 and it was out of range ;18 (2-13).I also had a pituitary mri done and everything came normal.He got me on cabergoline (dostinex) for one month, and while on it i was still experiencing libido loss and i figured out i was lactating (im still lactating today).
On dostinex my prolactin dropped to 2 and my tsh was 0,99.After stopping caber, prolactin jumped to 11, testosterone jumped to 640, lh was 2,6 and fsh 3,4 , tsh 1,29.(july).I decided to chek out my estradiol levels and it was out of range :57 (10-40).I took zinc+broccoli for one month and my estrogen fell to 33, lh was 5 , testosterone 550 and prolactin 13. I thaught my estrogen levels was responsible for my prolactin rise so i took calcium d glucarate.For the very first time in month i had libido for 3 days then it disapeared again.When i had blood test done ,estradiol was 18, testosteron 420, prolactin 18. tsh 1,7.I took one dostinex tablet again and the worst nighmare of my life begun: extreme depression, weigh loss, extreme fatigue, pale tools, and testosteron dropped to 390 and my scrotum apparence changed but i didnt have Ed.
I was in this state for 4 month, i wanted to kill myself.I was alone, nobody helped , but i decided to take care of myself with courage.I started to study biology and physiology reading ray peat articles and a lot of medical publications.I also discovered what was adrenal fatigue and the effects on low cholesterol on the body.I also discovered i had low vitamin d :24 (30-80) and my last blood test (april 2011) showed low thyroid function : tsh 2,27 t4 in range and t3 slightly elevated i dont remember sorry. I had a diet high in fat (coconut oil ,red meat, eggs butter) + ox bile and in one month my cholestrol jumped from 1,31 to 2,14.I took magnesium, folate supplement ( vitamin b12 is normal)and i had libido almost for one month and it disapeared again but i feel better.
Now my libido is like an off/on button. Feces analysis showed high calcium loss , poor digestion and calcium oxalate in stomach certainly due to low vitamin d.I also have a lot of cramps all the time.I think i have elevated parathyroid hormones including il-6 wich stimulate prolactin to rise.
Low calcium metabolism also stimulate prolactin to rise.My problem is that im not a doctor and im dealing with my problems alone.France has the worst medecine on the planet.Saliva testing doesn't exist in france and adrenal fatigue is an unknown condition here.I had my vitamin d level up to 50 but i know im still ill.I think i have adrenal fatigue due to low cholesterol and my panic attacks in the past.fenugreek played a role in my problem because it acts like a powerful statin and also increase prolactin.Even though my liver test are normal, i think i've destroyed it with my home made gainers shakes.I also think that i have low stomach acid.I need my life back but i dont know how to start because i have no medical guidance. What else should I consider having tested?
I really hope you can give me some insight and point me in the right direction. If you have any other questions that you would like me to answer please let me know and I will reply ASAP. I apologize again for my english.I learnt by my own ,by watching movies,listening to music and reading this forum lol Thank you verry much.
