Thanks for the reply. @equalo212. You've provided some awesome advice and understanding of the connection between SHBG and Free T, TT.
I saw a Dr yesterday down in CT that specializes in Thyroid, Adrenals, and Hormone therapies. He is concerned that I am a fairly complex case. Did I have underlying issues before? One thing that definitely muddies my waters, which I failed to mention in my initial post, is that I had a candida overgrowth found in my esophagus about 6-7 years ago, which is what prompted me to cut sugars, carbs, breads, pastas etc out of my diet and ultimately led me to a paleo lifestyle. I probably eat paleo 90% of the time and this seems to control symptoms. This was discovered because I was struggling with frequent heartburn. I am attributing this overgrowth to two separate rounds of IV ABx because of blood poisoning, frequent ABx when younger and a normal college lifestyle - beer, booze, pizza, etc.
My Dr was concerned with this. He was concerned with another interesting thing. I have NO REFLEXES. Haven't for years now, probably first noticed around the time of the Candida discovery. If he tests in the knees, achilles, etc there is NO reaction.
He is exploring the Thyroid angle for sure because of symptoms - cold feet/hands, fatigue, mood swings, etc. I had a bunch of blood work done this AM so we'll see how this looks.
I took armpit temperature first thing this AM with mercury thermometer, which was 97.4. I know @KSman mentions in sticky to NOT do armpit but this is what Dr told me to do.
Couple of other side notes after reading around the forum with regards to my background. I'm 6'3 and always been on skinny/lean side. Since college i've definitely bulked up through playing sports/training programs. Always been about 190-205 range since college days. body fat always under 15%. VERY little chest/body hair. Can grow beard okay, pretty full.
With regards to my issues from the Vasectomy. One of the reasons that TRT really interests me is because of the shutting down the sperm production, for two reasons. I've been having epididymitis pain, based on ultrasound and Uro diagnosis, which is something that can happen post-vasectomy...of course NOT something that is discussed by Uro beforehand. Anyhow, it's on one side (left) and can be from infection, and resolve, or can be from congestion, which i'm starting to feel like I have. With congestion pain, one of the treatments is TRT because it shuts sperm production down, thus eliminating the backup of sperm. There's a lot of research on this. Additionally, without the sperm production, the Autoimmune response that can happen after vasectomies is also mitigated.
I am concerned now though that I may be suffering from AI issues.
So, with my situation, I have low Free T, a bunch of other hormonal numbers being off - DHEA, Pregnenolone, SHGB, etc plus the Vasectomy reasons to possibly start TRT.
Just curious to hear thoughts based on additional info provided.
Thanks guys for your help thus far.
