Just looking to feel better. I Figured you guys would know more about blood work than most.
35 yr old male - 5'11"/200lbs. Dragging ass feeling, low libido, always sick, heart palps (PVC's), mental fog, can't make decisions easy, no drive, anxiety, mild depression. Sedatary life due to the fear of heart palps. Over all feel like I am swimming up stream.
Previously DX w/ low-T by first DR back in 07 and put on 200mg/ml day of t-cream. (can't get past doing shots for T, I am trying to avoid it) Never felt better. Guess I was not absorbing it by the results of my new blood work done by a new DR (below).

Before blood work was done last Tue., new DR felt I might have adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid and low-T
Started me on 2.5mg cortisol and a couple days later 1/4 grain of armor, stay on T-cream. Cortisol made me feel like I had 20 cups of coffee, but I did feel more sharp mentally. I was told to stop for now by nurse. Will not get to go over results with DR until a couple of weeks from now.
Got the results today in my email. Not sure how to read it except that it does look like my T is still really low and I might not have adrenal fatigue. Oh, it also looks like I am a french-fry away from a heart attack/stroke.
