No energy, even large coffee drinks are only keeping me ‘up’ for a very limited amount of time(note: I don’t drink coffee regularly, and only had a couple to see if they’d pick me up)
Negligible sex drive, recently started seeing a new girl and she is very attractive, but coupled with the low energy, I haven’t really had much in the way of libido.
Weakness, Most of my lifts have stagnated, and my vertical jump has decreased, also, I haven’t put on any weight in a few months, the gains I have made have been extra slow(contrasted to just a few months ago when I was rocketing up in all my lifts)
Minor depression, Despite a lot of ‘good’ things going on in my life right now, I haven’t really been feeling capable or on-top of them, and little things have gotten me in a funk a lot easier than I’d expect.
Trouble sleeping, Usually I am early to bed and early to rise, at ~6:30 AM I am up and active and ready to go. Lately I have been getting up at 8 or 9 and wanting to sleep in.
Loss of Appetite, Normally don’t have a problem shoveling large Pizzas or numerous hamburgers down my gullet. Lately I’ve been struggling to even have 2 burgers or half a large pizza.
The next one is kinda weird, but this is the big one that sort of clued me in. But, I’ve been really “lala land” lately. Difficulty taking things seriously, difficulty being motivated or having much ‘drive’ or commitment. And generally feeling very unbiased, very wishy-washy and all together not caring about details or doing things right. This is abnormal( although strangely enjoyable sometimes).
Presently don’t have health insurance(complicated, sudden life changes) so it’d probably be kind of expensive to get blood work done, I hear that saliva testing is actually surprisingly accurate, but in my limited research I haven’t really come across any services that provide this.
Question 1: Has anyone here had their Test levels checked via a mail-in saliva test? If so, how did that work out?
Question 2: Am I overreacting/jumping to conclusions?
Question 3: Assuming I have unnaturally low T levels, what then?
BTW, I’m in my mid 20s so my T levels should be decently high.
