I'm new to this site and really need some help. I have been feeling very weak and fatigued and am even out of work now for 1 month because I can't sleep properly and do not have any energy. My thinking is cloudy, no energy, and depressed. I can sleep all day if I get the chance. I need to get better. I'm 43 and its time to live a normal life. I felt like this when I was 22 yrs old but didn't have insurance and fought through all this until they put me on Paxil and discovered a few years later I had atrial fibrilation. The fatigue and depression has returned so I got a bood test and my testosterone is 97. Had another test to make sure and it came back the same.
I went to an endocrinologist yesterday and he is running more blood tests but says he thinks I just have low testosterone and nothing is causing it. Said the testicles are just not producing like they should. I have a lot of the symptones of hypothyroidism such as feeling very hungry and etc. With all the research I've done I wonder if he should be doing more testing on my thyroid etc.
I was also thinking that maybe my atrial fibrilation is caused by this and possibly and even my depression? I've felt very depressed recently due to this low testosterone. I'm hoping the androgel will help me with all these symptoms. I've been taking androgel for 3 weeks now and feel a little better but still can sleep all the time. I'm wondering if there are some things the doctors should be looking at. I have to return to work in 9 days and want to be able to return healthy. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
