Low Testerone And Spondylitis

Low Testerone And Spondylitis

I have been reading a lot of late about low T in men with spondy. As you know low T results in sluggishness and being tired all the time.

Have you as a man ever thought about having your T levels checked and if so what were the levels? What was given as a treatment?

My T levels were 126 when originally checked. I know inject .04 of oil based T every two weeks. My T level now in 550 and i am not as sluggish or as tired all the time. Biggest plus is my wife is happier now too!

Treatments & Medication

Treatments & Medication

After years of pain I was diagnosed with A.S. 5yrs ago. Trying to get something to relieve the pain. When I read so many updates and I think thats me. Then go to their story & treatment only to find nothing there. Could I kindly ask all to look at their profile and take 5mins to put what med you use or have used. There might be something that would help. Thank you. Hugs to all xx

Navigating This Sight...

I thought it was just me, but I'm learning most of us have trouble with communicating on this sight, so I am starting this thread so we can all add something so more of us will find this easier.
