Last summer I discovered at age 45 I had an condition called Klinefelter's Syndrome of which I requested the karyotype test based on questions I needed answering for my own peace of mind, such as mainly; infertility, low libido, erectile dysfunction and an underdeveloped physique, also the persistent anxiety, depression and some gender questions which have pursued me all my life, where I actually feel out on the fringe and not particularly male despite being one. There was also a worrying chest lump which thankfully turned out to be an infection. I have also been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, but I am not at all like the majority of aspies.
Anyway on confirmation of my suspicions that was a massive weight off my mind, all the questions had an answer so it seemed, but now they don't as my endocrine results do not reveal hypogonadism where the endocrinologist actually said ; My results do not present the usual picture for Klinefelter's Syndrome, yet, I am 47, XXY, which is called Klinefelter's Syndrome, yet I don't have Klinefelter's Syndrome.
Asking my GP to explain, she had no idea and even said she knows nothing about XXY and neither the GP before her and so I am left with some rather distressing conditions that I am not confident I am going to get any help with, because I don't fit '' the usual picture for Klinefelter's Syndrome of which medical care is available '', so can someone please explain what is going on, because really this is not doing my mental health much good at all and I really would like to start living at some point.
( I have also quested of the various interweb fora concerned with the condition and no one can shine any light on what is going on, an XXY without hypogonadism is unheard of, where I have actually been called a fraud and that does not help either)
