Apr 25, 2016 · Low Testosterone in Men's Health

Why are you not feeling well about the next doctor appointment?   This could be a good chance to start getting help to feel better.  Low testosterone and low b12 can make you feel the way you have been feeling.  Get those levels corrected and see what a difference you may see.  It might take a few months so be patient.   I hope this helps.

Happy Connecting.

Sorry it took so long to reply. But I have to say I feel 100% better. The androgel works. I have also been off of my heart meds for over 3 months and no atrial fib episodes. I want to think that my low testosterone was causing my heart issues. I have no proof but after taking medication for atril fib for 15 years and now after being on andro gel for 1 year, I have not more heart issues. I really wonder if there is a correlation. I will look in to the aspirin replacement.

Sorry to hear about your brother. Doesn’t the coating on some of the asprin help prevent this?

I started androgel about 4 weeks ago and started feeling better but my feet and ankles swelled up after a long car ride and the doctor said to stop taking it until he got back with me. 5 days later he said to reduce my dose from 4 pumps to 3. But I think the week without it sent me back to square one cause I feel horrible again. I was out of work for 5 weeks and started back this past tues and wed but missed again today. I don’t know what to think.
My a-fib is under control with meds. I was just hoping this low testosterone was the cause of that. I take asprin every day to avoid stroke.
Not sure what TSH is but my free testosperone was 3.2 (low) and Testosterone Serum was 96, (low) and FSH was 3.7, normal, and Prolactin was normal also.

Does this help?

That is a lot of medication to take each day. How did they know your pituitary wasn’t doing its job? I was hoping just taking the testosterone gel would be enough. I don’t want this to lead to a bunch of other issues.

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.
