Not feeling well and can't find a doctor to do any decent tests to find out. I feel like I need my Testosterone Tested. Here are my symptoms:
- Dry Skin, very severe on testicles and scalp
- Hair thinning all over body (not baldness style - on specific parts of scalp and arms)
- Low Libido
- Hard time concentrating (Adderall helps, but he's on a high dosage 2x daily, and it wears off weird)
- Slight Depression
- General Anxiety
- Extremely fatigued - 9+ hours a night, sleeps on our drive home from work (my wife drives me) for 2 hours BOTH ways, then takes a 1-2 hr nap when we get HOME!

Hello,While hypogonadism could cause quite a few of the symptoms you have mentioned,yet at your age group there are less chances of the same.You need to get a proper clinical examination and investigations like CBC,urine analysis etc to rule out other common conditions like iron deficiency,B12 and protein deficiencies.Infact though uncommon, taking raw eggs could precipitate a Biotin deficiency with features of hair thinning,dry skin especially of scalp and testicles,lethargy and depression.
Indeed testosterone levels needto be studied but many such cases present with obesity,and metabolic syndrome.
