First post my name is Anthony
I have been a follower of this forum since I was 18, now 21 I decided to look further into trt.
Little backstory of my life and ill do my best to keep it short. Always played sports till high school were I dealt with a lot of anxiety and being overweight. I was put on zoloft for 5 months or so at the age of 15, but didn't notice any changes. Out of the blue I decided to quit the drug cold turkey, and since that day I haven't had nearly bad of anxiety ( still have a little here and there).
That summer I remember weighing in at 286+ lbs (im 6'4) and decided to get in shape. Fortunately I found fitness, started tracking calories and lost about 100lbs in total over about a year and a half. Now in my senior year I got a my first girlfriend, kept with the gym and everything was great. Made good gains at the gym, finally had sex, life was good. It wasn't till later well I felt I wasn't very aggressive in life, and I gave no fucks about everything. I never have seen a women and thought that I wish I can fuck her right now ( sorry for my language) and gotten aroused by looking at a women in a bikini. Only if I have some sort of stimulation will I get aroused. I have been with that girlfriend for almost 5 years now, and we have sex regularly. Don't have too many issues staying erect.
I don't do well in the medical field, that's were most of my anxiety stems from. But if it means a better quality of life I am all in. (how many vials do they need for the male hormone panel ) haha
I decided to try some of the things in the sticky KSman posted. Took my tempature when I woke, it was 97.7 and in the afternoon it was 98.6. When I was dieting I tried to eat foods without salt, it was a personal preference. I live in the states, and i'm not sure if they add iodine to the breads. But when I was growing up my mom started to cook with the famous sea salts.
Do you guys think a blood test is necessary for my symptoms? I know its a crap shoot without actual data. I have never had my blood drawn....My pediatrician only did finger pokes, guess it's time to grow up.
Current weight is 227 and about 15% bf
I don't drink or smoke anything.....
Supplements- multi, fish oil, creatine
Personal health problems
-When I was 10, I got a catheter up my urethra....They took images up there because I had slight traces of blood in my urine. Turned out to be nothing, and I believe I don't have it anymore, my dad had it aswell.
-hydrocele: This happened to me two years ago, basically fluid like sack in the scrotum. Seems to happen when I wear loose fitting underwear.
