Tally of Testosterone Level to Energy Level
Can we tally our most recent testosterone level to energy level; comparing your energy to your friends who are presumably XY.
I learned about my condition at the age of 48. My Testoserone level was 25ng/dl when I found out I was XXY. As far as energy level, I've always had three jobs and only sleep an average of 5 hours per night. The doctor then put me on Testosterone and told me I'm going to feel this and that (basically stronger and full of energy). I went through three different regiment systems of getting my Testosterone to increase but it went to about 35ng/dl; still compared to an 80-year old post menopausal woman. When taking the Testosterone, I could no longer walk even a short block; I felt like I'm getting a heart attack. My thigh and leg muscle would feel spastic. I had no energy. Aside from the Testosterone giving me depression I found no reason to take them any longer. I stopped it because mostly it would give me a strong depression. A few months after stopping, my level has gone down to 5ng/dl. The doctor has said the implications of low testosterone is low energy level but my energy level has gone up since I have stopped taking it. I don't feel anymore muscle spasms. I feel much better than when I was taking it. The one thing I have to worry about is Osteoporosis as low levels of Testosterone, as it does in females, cause osteoporosis. For me I would prefer the pain of osteoporosis than not making it to live that long.
I'd like to hear what your Testosterone level is and whether Testosterone gives you energy or not.
