Hello guys,i wanted to quickly outline my ‘‘problem’’ or perhaps my thoughts about something that has been bugging me the last year or so.
For the past year and a half i’ve been feeling lethargic compared to the past.I used to wake up 6am and go to the gym after 6 hours of sleep(did that for about 5 months with no sign of burning out whatsoever) going 6 times per week but now i find having to force myself to go even 4-5 days per week.That aside my strength has remained almost the same for that timespan that i feel ran down.
Last July or around there if i remember correctly i decided to visit some endos and test for many things since i didnt know what was wrong and what made me feel tired.
We tested everything from Heart Function to Testosterone ,Thyroid etc.
After all these tests were done including bloodwork,x-rays( or what its called that they test thyroid and other organs by that machine that they touch you with after they use gel,i dont remember their naming atm) and i got them to the endo for a review he told me that everything was in the normal range and that im slightly starting to have hypothyroism without being able to take medication as it barely has started and to check it annually.He then went on and suggested i visit a psychologist which i didnt do as i dont feel i have the need for one . I will proceed to outline the symptoms i witnessed below,i will provide the last years bloodwork and stuff later as i dont have access to them atm at work.
Symptoms i witness occassionaly that pass with time on their own,and others that still remain.
Lack of motivation (not only in the gym but in more aspects)
No strength increase despite gym and strength training consistency using numerous different variables
No Sex Drive,i only crave sex about once per 2 weeks,which is starting to be a problem with my 1.5year gf.Matter of fact sex drive is so low that i want to be more sexually active but its like my body is telling me no)
No morning erections for the past 1.5 years (thats as back as i can remember)
Substantial loss of apetite(dont take this sympton too seriously im not sure that it actually exists,its just that 2 years ago i was eating around 3500 daily while bulking and last year i managed to bulk on 2200 calories with mostly fat gain)
Slight Lack of Memory(i dont remember as many things as i used to and i find multiple times per day replying to questions others ask me about things with '‘i dont remember’'when in fact i remembered more things than most in the past)
The above symptoms are much more visible in the summertime(july-august purely broscience though i have nothing to backup my observations)
Also 7 months ago while deadlifting the standard weight i used to the moment i unracked it something in my lower back poped and couldnt do much for 2-3 days.Visited an appropriate doctor and found that that the distance of the disks 3 and 4 if i remember correctly is less than the normal one of the other discs.
I did my research on all those hormonal things but there are surely many things i dont know so i would really appreciate your input.
Also i apologise for the long read and if im not clear about anything please tell me to further clarify .
Will provide last years bloodwork in approx 7 hours from now
