I’ve already posted a story 6 months ago detailing my situation however over the last few months my symptoms have changed.
Originally, apart from bad testicle shrinkage and pain on and off for 3 months I had no symptoms when I stopped propecia. However after some testicular growth and shrinkage again, I suddenly started to exhibit some of the symptoms described here. I did however get diagnosed with a UTI which I’d had for a month or two before it was discovered and once this was cleared pretty much all my symptoms went except for minor testicle pain.
Over the last two months I continued to have sex and masturbate and over that time the pain has got worse and worse spreading from my left to right testicle as well and I’ve started to exhibit a number of symptoms such as, cold feet, insomnia, fatigue, mental block and potentially minor sexual problems (although these may well be mental or down to the increased testicle pain).
As such I decided to see an endo and below are my blood test results which I’m really looking to get advice on. As of today my symptoms are bad testicle pain, primarily in my left testicle, pins and needles/cold feelings in hands and feed, dark circles and a bit of nausea. So nothing compared to a number of people but this has got progressively worse and undoubtedly gets worse whenever I don’t abstain for long periods of time.
The blood test results are as follows:
FSH - 3.5 (0.95 - 11.95)
Luteinising hormone - 4.9 (1.14 - 8.75)
Prolactin - 156 (70 - 400)
Androstenedione - 4.5 (3 - 8)
Oestradiol - 139 ( 40 - 160)
Test - 34.8 ( 9 - 30)
SHBG - 50 (18 - 50)
Free androgen index - 69.6 (25 - 130)
DHEA Sulphate - 7.6 (2.8 - 12)
PSA - 0.5 (0 - 4)
Free PSA - 0.1 ( 0.15-0.5)
Free/Total PSA - 20%
MCH - 32.8 ( 27 - 32)
MCHC - 363 ( 310 - 360)
Total iron binding capacity - 43.4 (45 - 70)
I’ve no idea what these results show, and have only seen one or two posts with people having such high testosterone so I’d really appreciate any guidance you can give prior to a follow up session with my endo later this week.
