Testosterone treatment questions

I am hoping I am in the right place.   I am a 44 year old male who has literally suffered the last 2 years with very low thyroid and testosterone.   My testosterone level is 215 , 230 and the highest it has been was 245.  I never thought that my symptoms of absolute fatigue could be from low t.  I also have no sex drive despite being mentally. Engaged in thinking about it like a normal guy.   My ears ring as well.  I had some androgel prescribed to me about 5 months ago and just started taking it about 5 days ago.  I am rubbing 4 pumps on my chest every morning.  I seem to be doing better but it's too early to tell.  My question is,  is this the best method? Am I taking the right amount? My dr. Told me to start with 4 pumps but I feel like I can do 5 or 6.  

Will this help me with my interest in sex and night time erections?

Hi Bruce! Sorry if my space bar sticks. Well bruce i am 29 years old and I have LOW T too mine is like 219 no erectile dysfunction just depression anger and no sexual mood. I am like a rock. Did they offer you any other methods of dosage? They have actually said that the oldest method still proves to be the best and that is the mean ole needle >(. But if it helps hey a little ***** is worth a nevermind anyway best of luck bruce and see if maybe a different method might bebetter for you. Hope all is well.

Lol.  It's all good.   I have read that the needles work great at first but wear off very quickly.  I have hashimotos disease as well which causes fatigue as well.  I'm so tired all the time a can hardly function.  The erection thing seems to be an issue as well but don't really care as long as u have some energy.   Am I in the right place?

Hi,
   Actually low thyroid can do more harm than low T, and it can be responsible for all your symptoms. What are you doing for low thyroid, I feel you should correct that first.Do consult a physician and do the needful.
