Hi, I’ve been having some symptoms for around 2-3 years now. severe fatigue, depressed mood and erectile issue, also seem to hold onto a lot of fat around my lower abs/ love handles whereas when i was younger I always used to be relatively lean. One other symptom that I’m not sure if it’s related or not is a very tender/painful coccyx. It’s very tender to touch and makes sitting very uncomfortable, I’ve also had this for a couple of years as the doctor says there is nothing that can be done for it.
I’ve had several blood tests now, seen an endo and multiple gps. All they keep saying is my bloods are fine and to just forget about it even though my prolactin and cortisol are outside the normal ranges.
Serum prolactin - 596 miu/l (range 45-375 miu/l)
Serum cortisol - 758 nmol/l (range 140-690 nmol/l)
Serum testosterone - 16.2 nmol/l (range 8-26.1 nmol/l)
These are my most recent test results( probably about 3 months ago). I did have my free test checked on an older test but i lost the bit of paper. Although I’m pretty sure it was low for my age (25) even though it was in normal range, which I believe could be explained by high prolactin/cortisol?
Im curious if anyone has an input on what could cause this? The docs don’t seem to want to give me an mri to check for pituitary Tumor as my prolactin isn’t high enough and my thyroid hormones are normal? Could it possibly be a sign of over training? Although I did take a year off from lifting, with little improvement until just over a year I felt slightly better and then I started lifting again. I was fine for about 9 months maybe? Now I’m having the symptoms again. So at the moment I don’t workout as I don’t have the energy. Also I’ve never used any peds.
If I think of anything else I will add it and if there’s anymore info that would help just ask and thanks in advanced…
