I am a 31 y/o male. I take care of myself and eat healthy 90% of the time. I lift heavy and hard 5 times a week. No steroid use. Lately I have felt lethargic, low energy, low sex drive, decrease in erection duration and hardness, depression, anxiety, urinary frequency (just generally a “bad piss” feels like i need to keep emptying) and general carelessness. My T level 3 years ago was mid 600’s if i remember correctly. The number now is below.
-describe body and facial hair
I have a beard and mustache, lower back hair, some hair on fingers and hands
-describe where you carry fat and how changed
I carry fat in my lower abdomen and back
-health conditions, symptoms [history]
I only have seasonal allergies. Within the past 4 months I developed a rather uncomfortable bladder issue. I usually have to urinate frequently and it feels impossible to hold for about an hour after emptying my bladder. Dr has not diagnosed anything yet. I see him monthly.
Depression, no meds. Lifting has been my psychotherapist but it doesn’t work as well anymore.
