Long time lurker here that finally wanted to make a post. Just wanted some opinions on this situation being that I can sometimes be paranoid but also truly believe that theres something off with me. I am a 21 year old male, and I have been feeling extremely fatigued for the last 2 years and have gone to a few different family doctors to make sure that I don’t have any serious illness’, which thankfully I don’t. However, no doctor has ever been able to give me any information as to why I am so tired all the time. So I decided to look into hormones:
21 years old
5"10" 140 lbs
Regularly active, at least 4 days a week in a local gym with moderate weight lifting and cardio.
Lab Work: Keep in mind, I understand the lab work is incomplete.

-Brain Fog: Unsure, however I do feel as though I am having a hard time thinking or concentrating on things as well as I used to.
-Gyno: Very light gyno symptoms, I have always had puffy nipples and there is fatty tissue around that area but I do not have male boobs
-Fat Deposits: YES. I carry fat in my lower belly, around my triceps and around my hips, I have a lot of fat around my hips for such a thin person.
-Mood: I am more of a sensitive male, definitely a bit more sensitive than an average 21 year old male.
-Getting it up: I do not have strong morning wood and I do not have morning wood every day. I also take very long to recover after round 1.
-Body Hair: Almost non-existent. Little to none on my face, absolutely none anywhere else besides pubic and very fine, small hairs on legs
-Cold Sensitivity: Very sensitive to cold temperatures.
-Vision: I have always had poor vision and have been using contacts and glasses from the time I was a young child. Although some days I do feel as though my vision is reduced, this is normally the same days that I feel the “Brain Fog”.
**I do understand that I am young, however I feel as though I’m hanging behind. I have little to no muscular definition and have been on strict dietary and weight lifting regiments with no results besides wanting to throw up every single time I lift at the gym. I do not feel powerful or in control most of the time and am fed up with this feeling. I have toyed with the idea of running a cycle of test (I would obviously do more research if this was the route I were to choose) or an oral cycle of something like anavar (to see if this gives me a confidence boost that gets me past all of this) or an anti-estrogen only such as arimidex (at this point I’m just desperate). I just need some guidance.
