First of all, I'd like to give a shout out to the guys here helping others out. I think you are very knowledgeable and probably more so than 90% of the doctors out there when it comes to T. I appreciate you taking your time to help and I'm sure others are grateful as well.
To make a long story short, since around 16 I've had what I consider to be signs of low T. Especially my difficulty to build muscle. At 19 I asked for a T test, it came back at 236 ng/dl.
Recently, now that I managed to get insurance again I was able to get another test. I wasn't able to get everything I wanted, like free T, SGHB, and, estradiol.
Body hair I have hairy legs, stomach, and, some chest hair. I can grow a beard fast I have to shave every 3 days. I have a very deep voice and have had pubic hair since age 11.

testes ache, ever, with a fever? 2 years ago I had an ache in my right testicle and it lasted about a day. I actually got an ultrasound for that, everything was fine.
This year during a flu fever a noticed some pain in that same area. Which is odd since if never had any injuries there. It also went away in a day.
