I’ve been struggling for a few years with low energy but has recently got a lot worse. I’d posted a thread recently on Pharma as my training (road cycling is steadily back pedalling despite clean diet and working hard).
I’ve had problems concentrating
Constantly feel tired
I’m getting gyno- (I’ve never used any gear)- to the point I’m gonna pay for surgery.
Lost libido- not completely but I’m really not fussed.
I’ve been complaining to NHS doctors for 3 years about this stuff and they keep telling me everything is in range.
I get regular hot flashes too like a flipping menopausal women.
I’ve paid for a private set of bloods
Results are as follows
Albumen 42.7 35-50
FSH 6.4 1.5-12.4
LH 8.8 1.7-8.6
Oestridial H 163 41-159
Testosterone 17.8 8.64-29
SHBG H 76 18.3-54.1
Free Test (calculated) 0.206 0.2-0.62
Prolactin H 356 86-324
TSH 2.76 0.27-4.2
Free T4 19.7 12.0-22.0
PSA 0.436 <2
I basically feel knackered and I’m not enjoying life. I’m 36 and eat well and exercise as regularly as I can given my poor energy levels. I can’t focus at work etc…
I’m gonna go back to my G.P with this sheet but not expecting much-
Thoughts? Causes? Next steps?
Feel like crying as I type this- probably the estradiol!
