I'm a 21 year old male, and have been healthy my whole life up to I turned 18 or 19. In high school I used to have a normal sex drive. I used to wake up with morning erections and had a great sex life. Over the last couple years I noticed my sex drive slowly disappearing. I dont have morning erections anymore, I have no desire for sex, and when I do get an erection, its soft. I have also slowly lost my energy. I used to be able to run on 6 hours of sleep a night and be total energized the next day. I now sleep for 9 hours a night and still feel restless the next day. I also need a nap as soon as I get off work in the evening. A few months ago, I participated in a genetics reseach where I had a Bone Scan done. Turns out, I'm osteopenic. This is when I finally decided to see a docter. She sent me for bloodwork, and everything she had thought could be the problem, was ruled out. No vitamin deficiencies, Thyroid was fine, testosterone levels were normal, and not an diabetic. I am now waiting to see an endocrinologist, but that may take months. Any ideas or suggestions as to whats going on?

  • What was your vitamin D amount? I'd be concerned about having osteopenia at your age and wonder about a vitamin D deficiency. Did they a celiac panel for celiac disease?
