Hallo everyone. I am a 44 years old guy from Norway. Been seeking for some answers for a couple of years. After years of stress and high work pressure, i had what i would call, a breakdown 3 years ago.
What i experienced in the last months up to this, was increasingly the feeling of needing to breath deep, but not beeing able to get enough air into my lungs. And also yawning all day long.
After some months of this, i came to a point where i had a attack of hyperventilation. This made me very anxious, and i felt bad for some time. I was reading up on different websites, and ended up checking my testosterone levels. The tests came back and showed that i was low on testosterone. I started TRT, and felt that this gave me back some energy, libido, more focus and mental calm. But my breathing disorders remained more or less the same.
After one year on TRT, i started to look into some of the other values in my blood-panels. At the same time i was reading about PA and B12 deficiency. I had two readings showing 232 and 234 nmol/l. Vitamin D3 is 73 and 74 nmol/l. This with about 6 months in between.
Been having problems with acid, and digestion all my life, and been using a lot of acid medication. Was diagnosed with moderat gastritis in 1999, but did not follow this up.
Other symptoms : Numbness in fingertips, fatigue, sore tongue, my dentist have for several years made notice about that i am bleeding more than normal in my gums when cleaning, bad breath, .
I have made reservations with my doctor to get a check.
I know that my values are in the reference range, but in the lower range. As i understand the Yawning and the sighs are some of the more usual symptoms of low B12 and anemia.
What do you think about my symptoms ? Are there any problems with testing regarding my testosterone replacement treatment ?
I apologise for my bad English
