Need advice - Low T
I'm a 38yr old male. I've been seeing an endocrine doctor after suffering a head injury several months ago. At first, I thought my symptoms were the result of the head injury but had some blood work done after exhibiting symptoms below. Lab results came in and my total testosterone is 200ng/dL. Everything I've read indicates that this is low. My doctor is really dragging his heals and has not recommended any therapy. He keeps ordering more tests. I feel he's concentrating on the numbers but not hearing my symptoms. Is it time to switch docs? Is this something my general practioner should be able to handle?
Again, I know the head injury complicates it as they think I bumped my pituitary. However, physically, I have healed.
1.) General apathy - no desire to do things I once loved, like hobbies. Just exist, pretty much eat and sleep
2.) Extreme fatigue - sleep 10-12 hrs per night w/o feeling rested
3.) Lower libido - Still desire to have sex but am ok if I don't. No interest in porn (my wife is probably happy).
4.) Weak erections - Using Cialis
5.) Weight gain - about 5lbs per week
