I'm a 34 year old male that has had chronic fatigue for over 10 years. I recently attempted using supplements for methylation(metafolin, b12, niacin) for 3 weeks. After using the Niacin I felt wiped out and depressed. It's been a month since I supplemented and the depression hasnt lifted, and I have been feeling off balance, feeling weaker in my legs, and also waking up every morning with dry eyes and dry mouth. Now not sure if the supplementing is directly to blame, coincidental or if the supplements just pushed me over the edge somehow. I've tried them before and didnt experience, although it was a shorter stint.
I also had jaw surgery in May and I thought that since theres still a small amount of discharge from the area that maybe it was playing havoc with my health. The surgeon I saw a couple of days ago for a follow up said it was unlikely and my jaw is healing up well.
I've had heaps of blood work, brain scan and thyroid scan that came back all clear. My total testosterone has been coming back low end of range. The endo I saw didnt think it was too serious, however my Dr did give me a sample of androgel which gave me anxiety the day after I took it. Total testosterone was tested 3 times and it was around 10-13 of range 10-30(SNL lab) 8-30(QML). I also have chronically high normal Free T3. it is always 90-100% of the range. But TSH and FT4 is normal.
Other symptoms I have are:
Gynecomastia since puberty
Severe weight gain in last few years, without increase in calorie intake
Something has changed in the past month. I have never been one to constantly be on the verge of crying.
