Over the past year I have noticed an ever increasing issue with pain and fatigue. It has gotten to the point that I am in constant serious joint/bone pain and sleep more than I am awake. Even when I am awake, it want to be asleep so bad it is very uncomfortable to even stay sitting up. List of present symptoms that are daily:
Constant extreme fatigue
Very little stamina (one trip up the stairs at work and I am toast...it wasn't that way just a few years ago even when I weighed a bunch more than now)
Constant pain in my hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, feet, ankles, knees and the bones connecting all of them
Headache (feels like sinus but I have clear nasal passages)
forgetful and hard time thinking at times
near zero libido
bowel movement changes from day to day from loose and watery to hard
Collection Time 9:24am
TSH 2.54 mIU/L (0.40-4.50 mIU/L)
T4 Total 7.0 mcg/dL (4.5-12.0 mcg/dL)
T3 Free 3.4 pg/mL (2.3-4.2 pg/mL)
T3 Uptake 28% (22-35%)
IGF I 63 ng/mL (52-328 ng/mL)
Z Score (Male) -1.6 (-2.0 - +2.0)
Testosterone, Total 71 ng/dL (250-1100 ng/dL)
Testosterone, Free 15.2 pg/mL (35.0-155.0 pg/mL)
FSH 1.8 mIU/mL (1.6-8.0 mIU/mL)
LH <0.2 mIU/mL (1.5-9.3 mIU/mL)
Prolactin 3.4 ng/mL (2.0-18.0 ng/mL)
I have other blood tests from recently that include a metabolic chemistry panel and complete blood cell count if I need to post those, but these are what concern me. The endocrinologist says my pituitary is normal and my only issue is low testosterone. I realize that most of them are in the Normal Range, but also, most of them are at the bottom end of normal...doesn't that say something???
