Hello everyone. I am new here and desperately need to figure out this low T thing.
I am 32, male, 6'2", and 220lbs. I used to be very fit and loved to work out, run, and play any sport. About 6 years ago I started feeling less and less like doing anything and I have felt like complete crap since. I have lost touch with everything that i love and no longer workout, run, or play any sports.
No energy...to do anything
no sex drive
cant get extremely hard erections...when i can get an erection
constantly anxious and depressed feeling
feel like i cant remember anything...ever...especially things that i used to be very good at
my work has suffered
i feel like a ticking time bomb
feel like heart beat is not regular
hot flashes...get very hot feeling and start pouring sweat
never feel like i get good sleep...constantly tired feeling
loss of muscle and strength
I went to my doc about 6 months ago and she said my test was extremely low at 192.(that is the only number she gave me) I had an MRI and she said that came back clear. She then put me on 1ml Test Cyp injections weekly. When I go back she says everything is back to normal. However, I absolutely do not feel any different. I have asked her to run more test and she wont. I am currently looking for a new Dr to run the test that Matrix had listed on "Lab testing and getting to the core" to see more about what is going on. Until then I have a couple questions:
1-Do i need to stop my injections before having the new blood work done? If so for how long?
-i am on antibiotics for a sinus infection currently..do i need to wait a while after finished with them to get blood work?
2-How long should it take to get back to feeling normal once everything is figured out? I want to get my life back!
3- Can anyone PM me a good Dr in the Dallas TX area?
I look forward to getting to know everyone on here dealing with the same situation...and getting back to normal!
