Low testosterone symptoms may include: general weakness of the body, lack of physical strength, lack of mental clarity, maintenance of muscle mass and strength, maintenance of bone density and strength and libido and erection frequency.Though not directly reated to pain, the muscular mass is not maintained. Without this hormone, infertility, lack of libido or erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, penile enlargement, height growth, bone marrow stimulation, reversal of anemia and even appetite stimulation are all affected.
Take care and keep us posted.
I would think if it is serious enough to degradate bone density and muscle mass, it could affect pain levels as the muscles are depleted of what they need????
Reaching, but trying to understand my condition and give some kind of answer as to why I always hurt other than fibermyalgia - unknown diagnostic to unknown symptoms of unknown pain. The whole unknown part of this doesn't sit well with me as I have to provide for my family (4 children and stay-at-home wife). Expected to somehow function normally under impossible circumstances. Just trying to get on a path so I can know how to chase this thing rather than just helplessly suffer with an unknown disease.
I'll get off the soap box and back on to realistically trying to figure this out now :)
Thanks Rowena for your reply.
I am also curious about the adrenals and pituitary. I understand these can effect testosterone. Is there any ways to test these? Can high caffeine consumption exhaust the adrenals?
Any other info related to testosterone and pain would be really appreciated.
I have pain all over. So far no one has found out why. I just found out that my testosterone is low. I also have now sexual symptoms only constant unbearable pain.
