Training - Crossfit 3-5 x a week with 2-3 strength components a week before high intensity work out
Symptoms and thoughts - have thought that I might have low t and after researching a reading a little more on HRT I also thought that I might have hyperthyroid due to symptoms of low temperature normally around 98 or below. I also seem to always have cold feet and hands. My libido has decreased in the past few years and energy levels don't seem to be very high. No problems with ED really. Morning wood still happens bit not a regular and not very strong.
