I will try to keep my life story short here and jump straight to the puzzle.
I am 32 years old. Since the last 10 years or so, I have been suffering (on and off) from of all the possible low T symptoms you can find, except loss of height.
My symptoms, mostly extreme brain fog, constant fatigue and non-existent libido - come and go and can last for weeks, months and sometimes years. I am happy in general and never suffered from depression.
I have been examined in every way possible for my symptoms but my non-progressive doctors could not find anything (however they failed to check my free or bioavailable T and SHBG).
My happiness is higher than ever before but my symptoms worse than ever right now. This lead me to check my levels.
#1: Let’s say my cortisol wasn’t high, could my lower range of bioavailable T be the culprit of my symptoms even though my total T is high?
#2: My endocrinologist says my cortisol isn’t very high and that I shouldn’t worry. Okay so what else can I do? Clearly, this isn’t optimal for a non-stressed, slim person with normal values otherwise. He also thinks my T looks normal and does not want to treat it.
#3: I will run another 24h urine cortisol test shortly and bring it to another doctor. What else do you guys suggest in my case?

Additionally, I’ve tried all tricks plus supplementing everything out there for lowering cortisol without success.
This has been the hardest nut to crack in my life.
