I've had my own issues too. My doc ran my testosterone and it was 369 which she said was normal. I talked to my urologist and prescribed Cialis which did nothing. I tried Viagra ans got thrust headaches in my life. I was wondering if an endocrinologist might be in order. I think it might.View Thread
Six years ago I had a severe drug reaction that essentially had my encrocrine going downhil. My pituitary and adrenalin gland were sinch bad shape the I had to given a very strong dose of steroids from which I was weaned off over several weeks. Since then. I find I have lost upper body strength (which I haven't ever had a lot of), been very tired, short tempered and, generally unhappy as well as depressed on occassions. The concern I have has several issues. I have Type II diabetes from 1977 to date. Its controlled with glypazide and metformin as well as epilepdy/seizure disorder which is well controlled by Keppra and Lamictal. My doctor tested me several months ago and said their was nothing amiss. Should I see a specialist and if so, what kind?View Thread
