I posted a while ago, but I have new questions.
I am 33 and have a level around 320 total and 8.2 free. So, I went the route of full diagnosis, I have low FSH, but no pituitary tumor.
I was put on one tube of Testim per day and that raised total T to about 350 and free to about 8.4. So they put me on two tubes. I have not had the blood work yet for the result of the two tubes of testim per day.
The issue is, I still feel exhausted all the time. Most of the doctors I have seen say 320 or 350 is really not that low and probably isn’t the cause of the exhaustion. I can, and do when I can, sleep 12 hours a day or more. I am constantly tired. I had a sleep study done, it’s not sleep apnea, sleep stages all seem to be fine.
Am I correct in thinking 350 is just too low? Or are the doctors right and 350 just wouldn’t cause this kind of exhaustion?
As a side note, shortly after going on two tubes of Testim per day, I get a splitting headache during exertion, especially sex. (And sex is a large amount of effort, since completing it is terribly difficult, I think libido is pretty crappy right now.) These headaches, at their peak, are equivalent to being in the attic and standing up into a rafter, I grab my head, feel like I might vomit. The headache is low grade constantly, but spikes during these events. (I’ve had an MRI recently, for the pituitary, and nothing like an aneurysm or anything showed up, it doesn’t seem to be BP related.)
I am having a great deal of difficulty concentrating, focusing on a task. The doctors keep implying it’s depression, but I think I can tell the difference. There’s a lot of things I WANT to be out doing, but I am just too tired to do them.
Does any of this track for anyone else? Do these things correlate at all? What should a 33 year old male’s T be on average?
Thank you for your time
