Hi all, . Ive been told i was severly depressed, I went to many doctors for diagnosis(50-60 doctors easily in that 5 year period). And everytime the uneducated docs would say- go to the phychiatrist - (three month wait later)phych says go on these tablets guinnui pig- ive been on nearly every Anti depressant known to man over these 5 years. The doctors swished me in and out, I felt like it was all my fault and was worthless and nothing would ever fix me. Guess what? Found a great doctor- he finnaly did the correct blood analysis and found that my testosterone levels were so low that it may as well have not been there. Hypogonadism delayed onset- iron deficiency- reduced thyroid function. Well well well. After being labelled bipolar for 5 years with no light at the end of the tunnel wrecking my liver with tablets that did NOTHING to improve my mood, all i need is hormone replacent therapy. Being labelled bipolar wrecked my life. I could barely work i was aggressive , moody, had no joy in life . One shot in my **m and im back to normal-after 5 years of being down in the dumps it feels better than normal. I feel like ive won the lotto! I advise all males out there in the "BIPOLAR" boat to go get an androgen test ,low testosterone levels cause aggresiveness moodswings sleep problems fatigue decreased libido etc basically nearly the exact syptoms bipolar displays. Im 110 percent better than ever! im happy again, confident, want to go out, have increased libido and energy to do things instead of being a wreck in bed acting like a menapausal female. I almost lost my Fiance to this illness and misdiagnosis because noone can help support someone for 5 years. I suggest that all doctors take a good look at themselves and do your jobs correctly. Im sure there`s so many other blokes out there like myself and there getting the same run around that i got. I ended up in hospitol 3 times in 2 months and became extremely suicidal from the continual misdiagnosis and no improvemnt, i was at the end of my rope(even the hospitol TOLD me i was bipolar... I would love to sue all the doctors and phycs that didnt run any tests on me and took my diagnosis purely on perception.Karma will get you all - I dont have the time - IM BACK AND IM HERE AND IM GONNA KICK **s! good luck to everyone out there i hope people read this and it can help someone- life changing! I love life again. Thanks for readingReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
