@dschmidt91, it sounds like you're already good at searching the internet for answers. But just in case others would like some reference points, here are 2 relevant articles about hot flashes in men and the complement C4A test.

– Complement Component 4 Test https://www.healthline.com/health/complement-component

Women in perimenopause know the symptoms that you describe all too well. But I can imagine besides the discomfort, you are concerned what these heat flashes could be indicating about your health as a young man. You said that you've had several endocrine and immunology tests. I assume that testosterone levels were checked and are normal? Have there been any accompanying symptoms? Any life changes?

Hi Colleen and thank you for the response.

My testosterone levels in my blood have come back fine and in middle of the range. My FSH has come back at the very low end of the range (1.6 on a range of 1.5 to 12.4). I got some special tests ordered by a natureopath which western medicine is quick to dismiss which suggests my testosterone is low for my age based on a Urine test. The test is known as the Dutch Test.

I feel pretty worn down often but not sure that is connected. I do get plenty of sleep.

As for life changes, maybe 6 months prior, I moved to the suburbs from the city with my girlfriend (now my wife). Though that was stressful, I have experienced way more stress than that in my life.

Mayo Clinic has unfortunately rejected me but I feel like I need a team of doctors to hear me out and put there minds together.

Has doctor ever tested for TB?
