Hey. New to the site, but have always been reading through the forum the last couple years. I never had any issues before (that I knew of), but I don’t think that is the case any more.
Background - I’ve had a little gyno since puberty and it wasn’t noticeable at all. Up until the last few years the gyno grew and my nipples got larger. I am 25 now about to turn 26. April of 2013 I had correction surgery by a general surgeon because my insurance covered it. Ended up being less than pleased. Left nipple is collapsed and the gyno on the right started coming back. I went to a plastic surgeon out of pocket and had the right side corrected November 2013.
When the gyno started getting worse (prior to the first surgery) I started noticing other symptoms. Loss of strength, lack of focus, hair line receding, lack of interest in sex / softer erections.
I forgot to mention I live a healthy lifestyle, work out regularly, and maintain a good sleep schedule. And I’m married, no kids, moderate to low stress, and I drink occasionally.
Currently - Talked to my plastic surgeon about what has been going on and he said it sounded like low t. He referred me to a primary care doctor since I didn’t have one. Symptoms I told him were:
Lack of motivation - I don’t want to do anything (ex go anywhere on the weekend or make dinner)
Lack of focus - studying and work
Strength - Weight at the gym is getting really heavy and no gains
Cardio - I have no endurance
Hair - Probably receded 1/2 inch in the past year to year and a half
Sex - Soft erections or no interest
Fat storage - Starting on stomach and hips and it won’t go away
Gyno - technically twice
Irritability - This is probably the worst one. Irritability is VERY HIGH. Its hard to be around people at all. I can barely go to the grocery store.
I have an appointment tomorrow to get blood work done. I will post it once I get the results.
My bad about the long post, but I wanted people to know whats going on. I also wanted to be able to post any prescriptions (if any) or anything else my doctor says and get it verified through everyone here because it seems like there is a lot of knowledge on the site.
Thank you in advance for your help and comments.
