Paxton - I don’t think I have any symptoms attributable to low T but I’m curious what symptoms you had that I might look out for ?
Well, let's see:
1. Depression (like seeing your life in black and white, while everyone else sees Technicolor)
2. Foggy brain - made lots of mistakes, which was unusual in my professional history; forgetful but too young for that
3. Loss of muscle mass
4. Loss of exercise tolerance
5. No libido
6. Weight gain
7. Strange emotional swings; moodiness; grumpiness
8. Didn't like life at all
If this sounds like not so bad a list, try having all of them at once. . .
