Thyroid is always a possibility. Many of the symptoms if hypothyroidism are the same as hypogonadism [low-T].
- do you feel/get cold easily now
- are outer eyebrows sparse
- is your thyroid large, asymmetric or lumpy, sore?
- have you been using iodized salt? [important]
If hair getting ?thin on sides?, that is more that male pattern baldness.
You are a high T guys and DHT may be or was high.
Any blows to head or whiplash? When? When do you think these problems started?
Any hint of gyno?
Any reduction of width of peripheral vision [should be around 180 degrees].
Any other changes to vision?
What have your stress levels been? Any illnesses, infections, accidents, surgeries, major stress events?
ZMA will not matter much to labs.
Meanwhile, measure your oral body temperatures and post here:
- when you first wake up
- middle of afternoon
Cold maybe, eyebrows are normal, hair is thick and normal on sides, thyroid is fine. I consume moderate amounts of salt but I will inquire about whether or not if it has iodine.
No blows to head, I think Concussion in football 2 years ago but it was minor and I didn't say anything (colors went inverted and I couldn't hear anything for 60 secs, also was wobbly standing up and shaky feeling)
Hint of gyno maybe (1.5-2.5 on a 10pt scale) I do have large nipples and so does my 17YO brother (my mom and sister both comment about this) but we look normal and no hint of gyno in him.
Vision is fine, no headaches. Stress has always been a big part of my life. Played 4 sports in high school, worked 5 different jobs, held many responsibilities. I never lose my cool and always keep my poise. I don't over react or get worked up about a situation so my anxiety is pretty low.
Had food poisoning 14 months and 7 months ago. Had ACL reconstruction 18 months ago.
I haven't ever had problems putting on muscle. I can just about anything and put on mass.
I will start taking temperature but what should I be looking for?
Side note I've always had HUGE balls. (I'm not just trolling here either) I'm talking the size of a large grade A egg and I'm extremely hairy, I've developed a mane in the past 4 months, and hair on my lower lats for 2 years and EVERYTHING waist down is a wool covering. Stomach and chest are nicely covered and thick as well.
