I need to know if someone can help me figure this out. I was told to come here from pmgamer18
I'm 24 years old, and have been extremely fatigue for the past 14 months. I've never done a single drug (btw).
ACTH Stim test
Base line 14.5 (Range is 3.1 - 22.4)
30 minute draw 24.9 (Range is 3.1 - 22.4) This was listed as high.
LH 1.8 (1.5 - 9.3)
FSH 3.0 (1.4 - 18.1)
Testosterone 397 (241 - 827)
t4- free 1.38 (0.61 - 1.76)
IGF-1 246 (116-358)
TSH 0.879 (0.350 - 5.500)
Cortisol 8.4 (5-25)
Here is my Saliva test for Cortisol and Dhea-s (24 hours)
Morning 3.8 ---- Normal range is 3-10
Noon 0.9 ---- Normal range is 2-4
Evening 0.1 ---- Normal range is 1-2
Night 0.1 ---- Normal range is 0.5-1.5
DHEA-S 3.8 --------- Normal ranges are between 3-10
I believe my testosterone is too low for my age. I had another test done 6 weeks prior that showed my testosterone @ 319 (400-1080). My libido is fine.
My symptoms are 24/7 fatigue and sore neck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was the best shape of my life before this, and just want to get back there.

Your LH is low, FSH looks normal to me.
I would have to say 2ndary hypogonadism, meaning your pituitry gland in your brain isnt sending enough of the hormone(LH) to your testes to produce enough testosterone.
thyroid looks good.

Have you been checked for any viral infections because it looks like something could have got a hold of you Pneumonia, epstein Barr, mono, ect,
You might want to try some ZMA before bed that may help. Another thing, if you are carrying excess body weight this will increae the aromotase in your body. So addresses your lifestrlye habits may be your first step such as sleep patterns and getting your biological clock in check. Wake up with sun ligjht and stay away from computers late at niight.

Yes, I've had a 24 urine test done 7 weeks ago. It was 27 (10-105). The doctor again, said this was normal. I've been tested for a lot. EBV/CMB, Lyme, Allergies, Sleepy study, as well as other normal stand blood panel tests. Everything keeps coming back fine. They also tested my Heart and lungs (Xrays, holter monitor, pulminary test).
I'll request a free t3, as well as my E2 to be tested. I still think something is up here.

Ok. I'll ask for them as well. Thanks!
Dr. John: Anything else I should look into, or ask my doc to do? Any opinions on my labs?
I've montiored my temp a lot too lately. When I wake in the mornings, it seems to bounce around. Sometimes 98.1, sometimes 97.8. However, if I try to workout in the mornings (30 minutes on an elliptical) which I'm very cold while doing and breaking a cold sweat. If I take my temp after working out, my temp drops down to 97.2
