Re: low testosterone almost destroying our family. please help!
I've been dealing with hormone problems for four years now (very low testosterone 150, low thyroid, and at one point low cortisol). Doctors discovered this Dec. 2011
I'm 27 now and it has really put on the brakes in my life. The fatigue is something that I can't describe to anyone. I remember sleeping and waking up ready to go.. now I sleep and I sometimes feel even more tired when I wake up. The worst part is, is that it's INVISIBLE. I don't have a tumor growing out of my neck, going through cancer treatments, or any other major health treatments that people usually give sympathy.
Before my hormones bottomed out I was athletic, worked 40-70 hours a week, and was always go go go! Now, I have trouble getting out of bed. The pain is all over my body and it never goes away. I sleep a lot like your husband even after being on hormones for a year and a half.
The best advice I can give is try to understand what it is he is going through. From the joint pain, mood swings, memory, temperature sensitivities, fatigue, and not understanding the changes in his own body. Things do get better... unfortunately there isn't a quick fix. Also, look into testosterone pellets.. So much better than injections and gels (I've used them both)
