Low Testosterone

Postby TDenver on March 18th, 2014, 12:47 pm

My BFS symptoms started late last year. My symptoms started with extreme fatigue, occasional slurred speech and then BFS. Everything has gotten progressively worse and the doctors can't really find anything. I've had a EMG, full blood work, heavy metals test, etc… The only thing that came back is low testosterone. I'm getting pretty desperate for something, the fatigue is by far the worst part and leading to anxiety and overall apathy. Anyone else have experience with low t and BFS?

Have you been checked for Kennedy's disease?

It has some endocrine manifestations and affects motor neurons, but is well treated - mostly doesn't affect longevity.

I haven't. My Neuro just ordered some more blood work, and one was for DNA so I assume this is what he was looking for?

Kennedy disease can be 100% detected with DNA tests, so perhaps that's what he/she is looking for indeed.

After another round of non-fasting tests it still doesn't look like low t is actually an issue. Still waiting on the results from the Neuro, but I think the DNA is going to take a while. My GP is also doing a parasite test.
