I'm a 26-year-old otherwise healthy male that has never been on any sort of medication or had any major surgery. I get regular excercise and I'm not too overweight (5'11, 225).
I'm not sure what's wrong with me, but for roughly the past two weeks I've seen the following symptoms appear:
* Extreme fatigue, no energy - my testosterone levels were recently checked and they are LOW. Total Testosterone is at 161, which is critically low for a guy my age.
* Odd digestive issues. Never hungry, when I eat even a little I'm full. Bowel movements are dark, odd, inconsistent. Seems like nutrients aren't being absorbed?
* Concentration issues
I should note that I had two episodes of unprotected sex within the last few months, but they seem to have been low risk encounters based on what I know about these women and what they have told me. All STD tests including HIV have come back negative as well.
I know one of the women had Lyme disease - there's apparently some new research that it can be transmitted sexually, but the CDC seems firm that it cannot.
I just want to know what the hell is wrong with me. I'm going to see an Endocrinologist this week to look at my hormone issues.
Is anyone aware of how issues like this can arise?
Can my testosterone ever go back to normal? It scares the **** out of me thinking that at this young I'll have to deal with something that 70+ year olds have to deal with.
Thanks so much all.
