Nearly three years ago, (shortly after my fifteenth birthday), I woke up to find that, suddenly, my libido had flatlined, I began to 'fog over' mentally, I became impotent and I experienced fatigue and some personality shifts. A year and a half before, I had left testicular pain (probably just a cyst, it went away eventually), but in the years since the incident I described, I have had more severe and persistent testicular pain, particularly on the right. Worst of all, I have been unable to feel sexual pleasure of any kind for as long as I can remember. I didn't realize that this isn't normal until two years ago or so.
I was advised to have my testosterone checked, and it was, and apparently it is fine. The endocrinologist I described all of the above to then decided that this must be a result of depression. My parents happily agreed (I only ever told them about the fatigue and personality things to a degree, and they have made it rather obvious that they think I am a hypochondriac, which has made it difficult for me to pursue this) and I have been on antidepressents for about six months now. They haven't done anything for any of my symptoms. In fact, I don't think they've done much at all, even after they doubled the dose.
So, I'd say I can't get a diagnosis. Any ideas? Going to a doctor won't be an option until I leave home, I cook up another excuse, or if I sneak into some free clinic or something, I just could use a theory. Thanks.
