Hi there guys, apologise in advance for the amount of reading Iâ??m about to post but Iâ??ve spent Â£1300 (2000 dollars to the US forums) on blood tests recently and I just want to get to the root cause of the following symptoms. Im a 21 year old male weighing 13.5 stone (189lb) with no obvious injuries or weird mal-nutrition issues. Eat normally just started going to the gym but have the following symptoms:
- Erectile Dysfunction (including no morning wood in years, Severe P.E)
- Fatigue which worsens in the afternoon
- Depression even though I have nothing to be depressed about but have just lost the drive to do anything at all. Even making conversation is a chore due to the fatigue.
-â??Brain fogâ?? which ties into the above.
-Frequent urination which includes getting up 2-3 times in the night.
-Feeling like an old man when Im only 21 and wondering what the hell Im doing posting things like this lol.
