Hey folks. I'm a 27 year old male having a rough last 2-3 years. Here's the basic scoop...
Symptoms: chronic (terrible) insomnia, fatigue, brain fog, muscle loss, poor body fat distribution (skinny-fat), ejaculatory anhedonia (everything "works", but feel no pleasure), intermittent bleeding gums
Drug history: no steriods, took adderall (for the "brain fog" mentioned above) for 2 years (stopped 1 year ago, stopped being able to tolerate it). Currently on nothing but melatonin (every once in a while), ambien maybe 1-2 times a month. Used marijuana 4-5 times (all more than a year ago). Alcohol socially (2-3 times a month)
I've posted my recent blood results below. I'm especially concerned by the hormone results. My IGF-1 levels are well below range, and troubling as I am only 27. My testosterone is also low-normal, from wikipedia I see that it is lower than the average 70 year old male. I also have below range FSH. Seems like something is going on with my pituitary... what do you think?
