im completely new here and not sure if im using this correctly but here it goes since im desperate. Need advice from someone who had thyroid and testosterone issues.
37 Years old
Married, one child
Complete Thyroidectomy 3 years agol
Low Testosterone - last blood work at 144ng/dL
on Levothorixine - 125mg
on cytomel - 5mg
NO SEX DRIVE and ED
just got put on Clomid - 25mg a day
I began to have serious effects from the thyroidectomy months after the surgery. I was originally on Levo 125mg (still had a drive). Then i was put on 175mg because of extreme fatigue and no energy with bad lab work (but still had a sex drive). After about 6 months i started to have panic attacks. Cutting the grass i though i was having a heart attack. Went to cardiologist and was discovered the levo was too high for me and which had my TSH level at 0.04 (normal is 0.40-4.50 mIU/L). It was around the panic attacks that also began to have ED (anxiety caused, i thought). During the time that i thought something was wrong with my heart AND down there i also saw a urologist, who after running test (1 year later after the surgery) discovered my test was at 209. I came off levo for a while to calm me down, Then after running test with my endo i was put on 137mg of levo (still with cytomel) for a while. Began to battle with ED after the panick attacks and finding out i had low T. I began to educate myself on how to boost T natrually, so i though, and came up with a regimen like this:
L-argenine with L-citrulline
Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc
Tongkat ali (cyling)
Horney Goat weet (sometimes)
Here’s where it gets tricky. When i came off levo at 175mg to 137mg, i was also doing the regimen i listed. The 137mg still gave anxiety, BUT my Testosterone levels did this while getting tested between my Endo and Uro.
3/10/16 - Test 209 ng/dl
3/26/16 - Test 157 ng/dl
6/12/16 - Test 288 ng/dl
7/29/16 - Test 378 ng/dl
10/21/16 - Test 356 ng/dl
NOW it plummeted at 144 ng/dl. on Dec 2016. The weird this is that, when i was at 137 levo it was the highest Test at 378, BUT I STILL HAD ANXIETY. So my endo put me back on 125mg of LEVO, and thats when i found my T very low. I have been battling sex drive since August of 2015. My Endo seeing that im at 144 test, said its time for Clomid. Because i want to maintain fertility. I have been on clomid for only a week and IT SUCKS!!!. im not sure how long this takes, but all im getting is headaches and i feel worse. With low t i feel tired and no sex drive, but on a week on clomid i feel emotional and with headaches. I keep reading negative things about clomid like here: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Clomid_Risk.aspx. Saying things about Clomid being an Estrogenic Zuclomipene Isomer. ANYWAY! i guess im all over the place and need some advice. CAN thyroid medicine have a positive impact on Testostarone, if so, i guess i should take more and DEAL with the anxiety? if my labs look good? Also is Clomid really safe? I dont want ANYTHING to take away more of my sex drive. If i can just get the drive back, what would be awesome for my wife and i. We plan to have our second child in about 1.5 years. Thanks in advance.
